What a character ... full of humor... so Whitty... so caring ... and so in love with his family .. times were tough for my husband and I .. I had been searching for that perfect place to live ..I met Mr Fey... It was not warm and fuzzy🥴 .. he was firm .. direct and seemed unwavering... unknowingly renters before me had large dogs that messed up the property in/out .. so.. he was not a fan of my 10 lb papillon as well 2/cats 🙄. I pleaded ... I promised ... I assured ..I was ready to forget it as they had been withme their whole life 🥴I don’t know what happened ... But.. he said yes 😀the rest is history ..it wasn’t long ..I got to know the gentle man he really was ... not even meeting yet .. my husband Nick and he had a common link .. both construction guys .. it wasn’t long .. he was calling him at times ... I met his lovely wife and younger son .. and the extended family .. they would visit often at first ...then Mr Fey began having health issues.. I did not feel like a renter .. I felt like I belonged .. what an incredible gift in itself ... without effort I grew to love this family ..the love..closeness..care so apparent .. so refreshing in this torn world we live in..we had the pleasure of seeing Mr/MrsFey/lovely daughter/handsome son for what I knew would be the last ... I felt proud that he could visit ..see that things were taken care of..know that all was ok .. my heart hurts for each of you who had your own special moments ... this world has truly lost a bright star 🌟 BUT heaven has gained a very beautiful angel ..Mr Fey will always be very close in your hearts ... in your souls.. he will always live in the wonderful memories that you’ll forever share until you meet again 🙏🙏 May GOD hold you in the palm of his hands as you journey through this adjustment in life ... I love you guys ... god bless ♥️♥️

Tom was the contractor on some of my home renovations a number of years ago. He was honest, diligent, profession and fair. He was also funny and kind. As a connection continued through the years in various ways I also learned that he was a loving family man with a lovely family. Eternal rest be granted.

I remember when we were kids going with my Dad to visit Uncle Tom when he was working at the A&P as a butcher on his days off and him always giving us big slices of bologna. All of my memories and all the pictures I have of him - are of him smiling. Rest in peace dear Godfather.

Being married 56 years, Tom and I have had so many special memories. Our wonderful children and grandchildren have given us much joy. We have traveled so many times throughout the years with just the two of us and other times with our family and friends. We enjoyed each and every one of them. We have no regrets. We did it all, thank GOD.
Alaska, Hawaii, Canada, China, Italy, Greece, many Caribbean Islands, and numerous cruises.

My heart is breaking in a million pieces realizing that he is no longer physically with me. I know he will always be lovingly watching over me and my family from above.

I love you with all my heart forever, my Husband, Best Friend and the one and only Love of my Life.
Until we meet again, rest in peace. Enjoy being with your family and friends.

Loving You Always,
Lorraine

I will never forget all our Lake George memories such as the hockey puck hamburger man and the white sheet man walking thru the apt. Leaky ceiling and lots of fun with the family. Coming thru the toll booth together was a miracle too. Good Chinese dinner that night. Rest in Peace Dear Tom.

I remember a time when I was in the service and home on leave. Tom loaned me his beautiful 1950 white Mercury on a nasty dark night that was difficult to see. I brought the car home dirty and dented. Tom being who he was only said " Forgedda about it" Tom was not only my brother but my friend.

Cousin Tom is part of my earliest memories. although he was 3 years older than me , he was closest to my age when I stayed over at the Fey apartment on Myrtle Ave in Brooklyn in the 1940's. He was also a partner when we visited in Babylon to go swimming at Belmont Lake and Heckscher State Park. Now I don't recall if they were two different places, but I enjoyed them and I know that Tommy did as well.

Rest in Peace Cousin Tom
