So sorry for your loss Nancy and family. I knew Tom from working at Ruddy. I always remembered him as being a friendly guy with a smile on his face and a hello as he walked by.

My condolences to Nancy, Tommy Jr and Jennifer. Tom was a wonderful boss and better man. He taught me a lot the most important of which had nothing to do with work. He will be missed greatly but certainly not forgotten,

Rest in peace,

Peter Mulvihill

My sincerest condolences to Nancy & Family. I remember Tom as a kind and gentle soul, with always a smile on his face. I also remember the Ruddy Baseball games, not as a participant but as an active and vocal fan. In those wonderful days at Ruddy Electric, we were all like a big, happy family, and Tom certainly contributed to that.

May the fact that so many people loved and respected Tom, be a comfort to his Family.

Dear Nancy and family: My thoughts and prayer are with you. The world has lost a wonderful soul. All the time I have known Tom he was always happy. Playing his guitar or spending time with family. When you came to the clinic for Toms blood work he was always smiling. In this hard time think of all the good times it will help you get through this difficult time

Nancy, Jennifer, Tommy jr. and extended family.
Both Tracey and I are so very sorry for your loss. We have so many memories of Tom that we will forever cherish. For me personally, it was a privilege to work alongside Tom for so many years. It was an even bigger privilege to be his friend. We will miss you my friend.
