Thomas was in my homeroom for all the years I attended OPRF.  He wa.s a close friend and a dear one too.  He had a great sense of humor but also a great mind to whatever he was doing.  My sympathies to his wife and family.  A great loss for all of us.

Enjoyed Tom in homeroom and am glad I got to spend time goofing off and playing golf in his last years.

Tom was one of the guys in the hood so we had a lot of good times together. He was always fun to be around and had a great sense of humor. So sad to see him go

I met Tom during freshman baseball tryouts and he was happy go lucky back then. Tom and I played golf in a twosome occasionally over the years. We also played in foursomes and even fivesomes with DOOPERS.  We hooked up with the Kadon Korp of golfers formed after the 25th reunion. His humor on the course was racy and self depracating. Tom had vision problems at distance so whoever played with him had the duty to find his ball.  Nevertheless, he was easy to play with and ball hawking was a minor problem. Over the last 10 years the group would go out to dinner quarterly and meet for a Xmas gettogether.  I visited him in hospice at home and we watched golf and talked about the game and the comaradarie over the years on the course and the 19th hole. You can learn a lot about people by playing golf with them. He was a good egg. I will miss him.

I really did not know Tom in high school but met him later on the golf course.  Always happy and generous, he always had a good time with the beverage cart ladies.  I was the one who had to find his golf ball.  As it was always a challenge to chase his ball (and mine also) I guess I was an aggressive golf cart driver. One day, we had to make a sharp turn  to chase his ball, and he ended up on the ground, still holding his hot dog.  I gave him a ten, he stuck the landing.  Rest in peace, Tom.  And, thank you for your service.

I first got to knowTom in Grammer school.  We became close friends that lasted to the end. Tom was always open to try most anything.  I am going to miss him.

Tom and I wear in homeroom together for 4 years and have spent the last 25 years (has it been that long) on the reunion comity having a great time and a lot of partying. Yes he was a golfer and had some distance problems that’s better than in the woods all the time, not saying. Tom will be misted for sure his humor and ridding in the cart with Ellen. God be with you.
