what we will remember most about Tom Judit is the love and care he gave to his wife, Amy...surely, if any are, they are together again on the other side of the glass, in the best of their times...

I had the privilege of helping Tom care for his wife Amy during her illness. I became very attached to the entire family. My thoughts and prayers are with all of you! May you find comfort in knowing they are together again ! RIP Tom and Amy. I love you both !

My girlfriend and I both were fortunate enough to attend Salem Elementary while Thomas Judit was the principal. We also coincidentally spoke of him last week while reminiscing of our younger days. We were discussing how kind and fair he was yet firm. Nobody wanted to have to go to the principals office but he knew how scary it was and he managed to scold in a way that taught a lesson but was kind and understanding at the same time. We are so sorry to hear of his passing. He was truly a special man who was highly respected and adored by his students.

I worked with Tom for many years when I went into school administration. He was a gentleman, he cared for his students and staff and I know his family and friends will miss him. I am so sorry for your loss but I hope that the passing of time and your good memories will help ease the pain.
