Tom was a great cousin, friend, Husband and father. My earliest memories of Tom are from him striking me out in Little League behind Forbes Field. He was huge and intimidating, and never cut his “Cous,” which is what he called me, any slack. I also remember countless times together at his home in Oakland, many of which included sneaking in to Forbes Field to watch the Pirates play. We were both proud to have had the opportunity to play and share our sports experiences in high school and college, but it was our marriages and time together with our respective spouses that really cemented our relationship.

I hate that Tom suffered with physical ailments in his late years and choose to remember him in both persona and stature as the man I knew and cherished.

We will miss Tom dearly, and hold Lorraine and all of Tom’s family in our thoughts and prayers.
Love, Don & Susie DeCort

Lorraine,
I am so sorry to hear about Tom's passing. I lost Ed almost two years ago and know it is difficult losing the person with whom you shared your life. You are blessed with friends and family to help you get through.

With deepest sympathy,
Diane DeCort
