Tom was the Village Clerk Treasurer, for the Village of Sloatsburg for over 50 years, retiring in March of 2022. Everything about Sloatsburg is a direct result of Tom. His legacy is in numerous children’s programs, activities, and events that he created and are still enjoyed to this day. Tom was a devout Catholic and active parishioner of St. Joan of Arc Church. He devoted countless hours, in decorating for Christmas, and planning the Annual Carnival.

Tom was an active member of the community, which was a direct result of his love for family. Tom spent family vacations at the Jersey shore, watching The Waltons and Little House On The Prairie, restoring furniture in the barn, and working in his yard. When you drove down Sterling Avenue you could always find him in the yard, where he would then climb in your car, and inadveradly take you on a tour around the village. He was preceded in death by his father Thomas F. Bollatto Sr. and his mother Julia Trischitta Bollatto. He is survived by his loving wife of 47 years, Pamela, his son Matthew Bollatto and wife Genyne, his daughter Meredith Wissner and her husband John, and his four loving grandsons: TJ, Jack, Lucas, and Finn.
