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.
