Tom was a wonderful father and was actively involved in our boy's basketball team at St. Augustine's church in Larchmont. I'll never forget one day the boys decided to play against the fathers. All of the "boys" were very intent on winning the game. During the game, Tom hurt his arm and after the game, we all came back to my house for drinks. We had a great time and when Tom went to the doctor, he found out he had broken his arm. Such a fun and gracious man!

I had the pleasure of working with Tom for nearly two decades at CBS. He was not only the consummate professional, he was one of the nicest guys in the business. I feel very lucky to have known him and my heartfelt condolences go out to his family and those closest to him.

Tom and I were colleagues at CBS. Our areas were related, but did not require us to work together often. When we did, Tom was generous with his time and very helpful. We’d see each other a handful of time each year and he was quick with a smile and a warm welcome. Rest easy Tom, you are missed.
