So sorry to lose my cuz Tombo. I was so looking forward to spending time with him, Kevin and Fred at Holmesburg once Covid was done. Like so many have already said, I will miss his sense of humor and his kind and generous nature. I can't believe he is gone. From hearing my Mom (Tom's Aunt Bette) talk about what a good kid he always was when she babysat the Cullen children, to chatting on their Tulip Street porch as kids and shooting the BB gun in the basement, to Tom sitting on the floor of my parent's den playing his guitar, to running into him boating on the Delaware, I have nothing but fond and pleasant memories. My heart and my sympathies go out to everyone who knew Tom, because anyone who knew Tom liked, and more likely loved him. Condolences to all.

I spent many summers in Wildwood right next door to the Cullen family. Although, we had no biologic connection, I always considered them my "cousins" Their great Uncle was married to my Dad's first cousin, so, no blood, but we sure had a lot of love!!Tom was a riot. I laughed for 2 weeks every year!! He was a great guy.....I will always love him (and his whole family)

So sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. The Cullen family were a big part of our lives. I remember Tom working at our store, the Maryland Crab house in the sixties. His parents were dear friends of my parents💕

Our family was so saddened to hear of Tom's passing. We were very fortunate to have Tom as a neighbor who became a good friend. He made us laugh, added humor to the most serious of situations, and was always willing to lend a helping hand. Our deepest sympathy. We will keep Tom and his family in our prayers.

Dear Tom, Thank you so much for always being such a kind, pleasant and humorous man. You were the most influential man in my life outside of my immediate family. Your daughter, our children, and I miss you tremendously more and more everyday. There is so many great aspects of our children they get from you. I will always miss how you called Mr.Scotty and impersonated me and my size. The dad jokes and blue collar advice were always priceless. Thank you for everything I promise one day at a time to be there for Laura, her siblings and our children. We love and miss you so much.

Tom Aka Geez,
I will forever treasure our friendship, our laughs, our lunch table talks. I hope you knew how much you meant to me. How much you meant to all of us. The world lost one of the greatest men to ever walk it. An excellent husband you were to Lynn, and an amazing father to all of your children, and the greatest Pop-Pop to your grandchildren. I hope you are up in heaven eating your Chick- Fil-A and playing your guitar. I love you Geez. I will miss you terribly.
