Tom was my inspiration on the track team. Fast, skinny, but with an incredible work ethic, his dedication to being the best he could be and running varsity at 110 lbs. led me to believe that "if Geraghty could do it, so also could I." A year following Tom's graduation, I had myself a track scholarship to Providence. In a very real way, Tom's dedication and example were life changing. Hope he is still training hard in Heaven.

Sincerely,
Joe Adamec '63

So very sorry to hear of Tom's passing. He was such a very nice man, and although I haven't seen him since I moved to another town, I hadn't forgotten him or Linda. My heartfelt sympathy to all of the family.
