My sincere condolences to the family for the loss of your loved one. May prayers strengthen you and memories comfort you, and may our Lord Jesus Christ and God our Father, who loves us, comfort your hearts and "make you firm". (2 Thessalonians 2:16, 17)

Tom and I were classmates at Manhattan Prep 57'. He truly was the smartest guy in the class. At the conclusion of the first marking period, the Prep awarded a 4 year scholarship to the student with the best grades--Tom was the winner. He excelled at everything. I went to Barrytown (Christian Brothers formation) at the end of sophomore year and then returned to the Prep in February, 1957 and the first classmate there to welcome me was Tom. May he rest in peace.

Dear Mary and family,
As with Richie O'Prey, Tom and I were classmates at Incarnation, graduating in '53. Tom was a loyal friend, excellent student and a leader among his peers. I have fond memories of Tom.
My wife Ginny have been residents of Madison, CT for the past four years. We are neighbors! I wish I had known!
Bless you all; our condolences on Tom's passing.

Tom and I attended Incarnation together as well as two years at Manhattan Prep. He was an outstanding friend, an impressive student with an ability to reduce complex math problems into simpe terms. I have thought of him many times over the years.

The Manhattan College alumni community shares the grief, and is now praying for our fellow alumni and the family at this time. The Alumni Office has been informed. As well as the Jasper Jottings and Manhattan Prep community that I personally can reach. We are all a little poorer now. "No man is an island, entire of itself ... any man's death diminishes me". We are sorry for your loss.
