Tom proudly served in the Army National Guard, Bronx NY from 1954-1960, and retired from the Transport Workers Union, to enjoy his love of collecting and selling antiques. He was an avid historian, patriot and savvy genealogist, which led him to complete his decade's long search for his birth-mother, Jewel Pedigo. He enjoyed his regular Friday morning breakfasts with his life-long friends and sharing stories with his large Irish family. Tom was loved by all!
