I have known Tom since he & my brother, Ricky, were in kindergarten together. They became fast friends and stayed that way thru their lives. Even tho, at times, they didn't see each other all that often, it was a friendship that always came thru in good times & bad. Now that they are both gone I truly believe they have found a way to be together as friends again. I will miss you both. Love, Judy

I remember Tommy, Ralph Yule, Rick Pacifico (I believe) and a bunch of the guys had a party for me when I was going into the Navy. Holy crap, they all but tied me up and held me hostage so I couldn't go. I remember being in the yard of the big old home on Branch Road in Pine Hill. Those guys ate too. There were more "beer burgers" than anyone could consume. A little beer too! I remember Tommy running laps one year playing football, he would never quit running. I'm not sure why he was running, I think it was the "red sweatshirt" thing because of his weight. I was a hard guy to like back then (arrogant putz) and Tommy was introduced to me and invited me to my party like we were long lost buddies.

Tommy was very popular. Everyone knew him and he always welcomed people to his parents home in Pine Hill. Remember that Road Runner (orange) he had? He was very good at throwing parties especially his boat parties and pig roasts. Man did the weed and beer flow!!!  He as a friend on Facebook too. He told me on there that he wasn't very good at typing messages and I told him he was doing just fine. Miss you bud!!
