I'm very sorry to hear of Tom's passing. He was a wonderful co-worker of my father, Angelo Girone, for many many years. Last summer Tom sent a heartfelt letter to Angelo that was cherished for its compassion and sincerity. On behalf Angelo's daughters, Julie & Susan, please accept our deepest condolences on the passing of your beloved husband, father, grandfather, and friend. God bless you always.

Tom did great things for Edmonds and was a pleasure to have as a friend and neighbor. Politically he knew how to get to the heart of the matter and focus on what needs to be done. Our thoughts are with you Maryke and with the children. Tom will be missed.

Tom Petruzzi was, first and foremost, a devout Catholic. We knew him to be a true gentleman in every sense of the word. He was an intellectual and a public servant that knew how to make things happen. And he was a friend. For all these reasons, we will miss him. Our deepest sympathies to Maryke and the family.

Tom was one of the first people we met after moving to Camano Island. We always found Tom to be a friendly, engaging and interesting person to be around. We count ourselves fortunate to have called Tom our friend. Our hearts, thoughts and prayers go out to Maryke and the entire Petruzzi Family.
