I would like to add to Dick Lorelli’s loving memories. Tom first came to my office and introduced himself in 1999. I was a total rookie in the ocean transport business and my personal success depended on getting complex problems solved quickly and mistakes were unacceptable.

Tom coached and served me for 14 years through very challenging times with relentless attention to detail, imaginative solutions and non-stop drive.

Yes, Tom was emotional but that energy drove logistical successes when failure threatened.

Tom loved fine Italian dining and I wish I could play golf like that guy. Tom will always be on my short-list of the most memorable men in my life

RIP Tom and, Thanks for the memories!

My deepest sympathy goes out to Renee and all the family.
Tom was a wonderful man. I had the privilege of working with him over a period of 20 years. He could be a bear at times but mainly a deeply caring man. He put his heart and soul in his work. He leaves behind a legacy that will forever be remembered by all. Now the angels have the pleasure to work with him! Rest in peace my friend.

DEAR RENEE & FAMILY: WHILE THE 50 YEAR RIDE WITH YOUR FATHER (DON TOMASO) IS OVER, THE MEMORIES WILL LIVE ON INCLUSIVE OF OUR DAILY BUSINESS CHATS OVER THE THESE MANY YEARS.
I WILL MISS YOUR FATHER BUT WILL REMEMBER THE GOOD TIMES INCLUDING PLAYING GOLF AT ATLANTIC CITY CC.
THE MARITIME INDUSTRY WILL SURELY REACT IN SORROW TO HIS DEPARTURE LOSING ONE OF THE GREATEST MINDS IN THE GLOBAL LOGISTICS BUSINESS.
MAY GOD BLESS YOUR FATHER AND WISH HIM PEACE.
SINCERELY
DON RICARDO
