We were lucky to have been next door neighbors all the years you lived on Sacramento. Your Dad was everything you could want in a neighbor. He watched out for all of us..especially my Mom when she truly needed it. He watched for me, making sure I was always ok and spoiled Brady with hundreds of bones. Our entire family sends their sincere condolences and prayers.

Kaylee and Jake would oversleep on purpose to see Uncle Tom as an usher at noon mass at St. John Fisher. He was such a sweet man who will be missed and never forgotten.
