Well fly free now Tommy and know all your high school friends are so sorry to hear of your passing. God bless your mom and tell your dad we loved all the Linzer Tarts you gave our family. ❤️❤️❤️

I am very sad to learn of this news. I knew Tommy in high school and he was truly was one of the nicest guys I had ever met. He was always a gentleman, always polite and always had a smile on his face. He always made you feel that you were special. My deepest condolences to his family. Rest in peace, Tommy.

I am sending my condolences to Tommy's family, especially his Mom. I have great high school memories cruising around in the blue Electra and then the Corvettes listening to the Grease 8 track tape. When I see a streak of smoke in the sky, I will think of him cruisin' through the clouds, top down, pedal to the metal and a big smile on his face. RIP Tommy

I knew "Cheese" for nearly 30 years. We roomed together at our pal Al Fungs house on Marco Island in the mid 90's. Over the years I would see Cheese occasionally around Naples. The last time I saw him was a couple of months ago when he stopped by to show off his new Corvette. He always had a smile and a joke. He was a good man and he was will be sorely missed by all current and former Marco islanders. God Bless

My heart and prayers are with you Lillian. It was my privilege to be Tom's next door neighbor. He was always friendly and kind. I am already missing him praying for rain and God's help in growing our shared hedge. But now that he is part of God's family on the other side, I know he will be still looking out for us. Thank you, Tom

Tom and I were good friends in High School. Was real close with his family. We went on many adventures together up and down the East Coast in our Corvettes. Many great memories which I will cherish for life. Tom has left us way to soon. My prayers are with his Mom, Lillian. So sorry. Rest in Peace Tom.
