“Tom played for our daughter's graduation at our home in Yorkville. Later on I bought his Iorio accordian and still have it. Tommy was a great guy and will be missed by many.
“I met Tommy when Bob Bartelt asked me to join them and be his drummer. That was in the early 70's after I had just joined the Union. Enjoyed performing with both of them for years and working with Tommy when I was Treasurer and he was an Executive Board member of A.F.M. local 181, Aurora Il. Play on!
“Back in the day no Fri.night was complete until you listened to Tommy play at the 3rd Ward Social Club. We will miss you
“Tommy was one of the real "good guys" in life. I was privileged to know him at Campana and then for many years as his insurance agent. I am sure that he and his music will make heaven a richer place.
“Tom an Helen were good friends and good neighbors. Our sympathy to the family.Warren an Ramona Dempsey
“Tommy brought so much Joy to so many with his accordion. There wasn't a song he didn't know. He always had a smile for everyone. We will miss him so much!
Our deepest sympathy,
