June 17, 1967 - August 25, 2021 Thomas Henry Amalfitano, age 54, passed away unexpectedly on Wednesday, August 25th, 2021. Tommy is survived by his wife, children, grandchilden, parents, extended family, and friends. He was born June 17th, 1967 in San Pedro, Ca. and dedicated his life to working with his father, Tommy Sr. From the age of 6 years old, Tommy Jr. started working by emptying the fish barrels as they came in fresh off the boats, and would help his father weigh them. Since then, he has worked hard to build San Pedro Fish Market into what it is today. He enjoyed the raw, hands on work as well as building relationships with customers and making people happy. His true pride and joy was seeing a smile on the customers face. He had such an amazing personality, an infectious laugh, and loved to have a good time. He is truly one of a kind in the best way possible and has touched the lives of thousands of people. Tommy was the type of person to help out anyone and everyone. He always put others before himself. Tommy being so kind hearted--even people who were not close to him considered him "heaven sent" because of his compassion towards others. In Tommy's free time, he loved to hunt, fish, go camping, water ski and basically do anything outdoors. He loved to go on vacations with his family and teach his children and grandchildren about his favorite hobbies. He was the ultimate family man and loved his family so, so much. It is with great sadness we no longer get to have Tommy here with us physically, but know we will one day see him again. His cheerful attitude and his bright smile will not only be missed in San Pedro, but throughtout the world. Services will be held at Mary Star of the Sea Church on September 9th at 10:30am.

Many fun memories with Tommy through Dana & San Pedro High. Weekends working at the fish market to earn a little money to play arcade games. Tommy was a character and to this day I can't hear an Ozzy song without thinking of Tommy and the way he sang crazy train. We all had long hair and carried a heavy plastic comb with a handle hanging out our back pockets. We skated all over SP and burned so many calories that our group of 4 where skinny stick figures. Life is not supposed to include losing our children. To Tommy's parents, Dorene & Tommy Sr, may you find comfort to know you raised a great son that is loved by so many people. Forever in my memories, Joseph

Tommy grew up three houses from mine. He was a wonderful, sweet kid. My son Dirk always called him "Big Tom" because he was small. Tommy loved being called that and always smiled when Dirk said it. Everything else about him was BIG, especially his heart. He was taken away from us too soon. May his memory be a blessing.

Going Up! I Am going up to the mountain, Walking all the way to the top, Never looking behind me because I might just stop! I'm reaching the crest and what do I see? It's Jesus Christ cross waiting for me! I bow down before Him because I'm not worthy to stand! He reaches before me and places His cross into my hands, Jesus telling me to carry it high so everyone can see! You see it's the least I can do for Him, Christ died for me! Never looking behind me because it's all but past! Just looking forward to spending time with my Savior! From now till time everlasting. Hallelujah!!! This poem is dedicated to Tommy Amalfitano Jr. See you in heaven my friend.

I worked with Little Tommy all through my teen years at the market. He was always such a hard worker and never played the family card to get out of work. He had an infectious laugh and you knew you´d have a good shift if you were working with him. He had a huge smile and a head full of curls. He was just such a nice guy. I am so sorry for the family. I know this is such a big loss.

It´s been many years since I saw Tommy. From school to working with him at the fish market a couple times. He was always a great friend and Almafitanos have always been a great family. Everyone I know in Pedro has been affected by Tommy and your family. My heart and prayers to you and I hope that your legacy will continue with your sport leading the way.
