Tommy was a very nice, polite and talkative person. I always enjoyed talking to him and seemed to like the same things. We knew each other since third grade. We spent most of our early school years together. Very nice person.

I worked with Tom years ago at MG Industries. He was always a positive, friendly person. A wonderful coworker! So sorry for your loss.

Shocked to see an old friend as passed. Time as passed since we were young and wild. Not sure I would recognize him today, still has a youthful face. Sure enjoyed our times working in the garage and going to the cabin and Jersey shore, NYC. The 70's were great times. RIP ....
