I knew Tom from Holy Rosary Parish. He was a very fine gentleman and no doubt leaves a big vacancy in his loved ones lives. RIP.

I feel so terribly sad for your (our) loss.
Tom was a wonderful man who once upon a time fell over heels in love with Diane.
They were lovers, soulmates and the best of friends. Tom’s good nature and loving leadership extended wonderfully out to his two boys Joby and Jonathon, their beautiful wives and the grandchildren who were truly the apple of his eye.
Tom could not say “Hi” without cracking a wonderful smile and showing a genuine interest how you were doing. He was generous in nature and kind in spirit.
In recent days despite the challenge of being unwell Tom took it all in stride and with abiding humor. Always thinking of others and particularly his beloved Di! (Diane)
This is how we will remember him!
