Tom was the sweetest and kindest human, full of joy and fun. Yet he was a straight-shooter and full of biting wit. He adored his life in Port Richey. He and Jon were fortunate to have each other for so many wonderful years, but it is never long enough when this time comes - for anyone. Celebrate Tom's life! With linens and crystal or BBQ and beer -- because Tom loved all of it, all of life, and all of us.

Tom made you want to be a better person. He walked this earth with class and integrity. He was always warm and welcoming. Yes his gatherings were exceptionally outstanding, but he was outstanding as an individual. You will be dearly missed my sweet friend.

I’m so very saddened to hear of Tom’s passing. I couldn’t imagine my childhood without my ‘Club’ family. I was always so lucky to be included to all the fun parties in Tom and Jon’s backyard. Tom never made me feel like I wasn’t welcome because I was just a kid.... I was one of the gang too. This world will definitely not be the same without his loving and super fun spirit. Rest easy, dear friend. You are already missed so much. Deepest condolences to Jon and family.

One of my favorite memories of all time----Sept. 1985, Tom got tickets for "Springsteen" at the Meadowlands for my 30th Birthday. We get there, everyone else is tailgaiting with coolers of 6 packs and junk food. Not our Tom, he opens the trunk of his Firebird---out comes a table, a linen table cloth, chilled champagne with crystal flutes, china plates, sterling silver chafing dishes (I don't remember the food, but I'm sure it was great) and linen napkins! How wonderful and how Tom!

Unfortunately, the thunder and lightning put an end to our night before it really began. We went back on the raindate---there was no tailgating by anyone---but, only I have that wonderful memory of sipping champagne in the Meadowland Parking Lot with my friend Tom----

Your spirit, your friendship and your kindness will forever be missed, thank you for being a part of my story and allowing me to be a part of yours.

Tom and his brother were Godfathers to me. From my early childhood through high school, Tom was a regular part of my life and I can fondly remember us playing games together along with my three sisters in his kitchen in Woodbridge. Tom and his mother and father would spend Christmas Eve with us, and we would eat many Christmas dinners at their house, a 30 second walk from my kitchen door.
I have never forgotten those times, and Tom's passing fills me with sadness. His quick wit and love for those things he was passionate about will be missed. Elephants...everywhere elephants!

Tom was more than a neighbor and friend . He was the "brother that I will never have" . He was a unique individual and I liked his style . I remember the parties he hosted at the PitS clubhouse in 2012. (Beads, poppers, gifts and gags) He reached out to me when I first moved into the 'hood' and introduced me to many of the local tourist attractions and restaurants . I have come to realize that I learned a great deal from him and I will miss his advice and opinions . He was so full of life and much too young to be taken from us; but I thank God for blessing us with the time we did have . Sigh...

Tom will be greatly missed by all who knew him. One memory we have is when we were going to a concert that was being dedicated to Jon deRevere for his retirement from NYU and they put us in the back of the auditorium, when Tom went up to one of the ushers and said, "These people are family, they should be in the first row, not the back row!" We remember our BBQ's, X-Mas' and lots of family get-together.s. Tom and Jon would always come from Jersey where they lived at the time. One X-Mas, it was snowing hard, and Tom and Jon came to our house in West Harrison, NY and had to turn around and go back home or they would have been snowed in. Tom was always family to us and we, too, will miss him.
