I had the pleasure of knowing Tommy and working with him at CT Dragway in the late 1960's. I have many fond memories, a few funny ones and a frantic one or two. For many years after, Tommy was always a friend and glad to see me and catch up. He was always good to me and I will miss him. Condolences to all his family and friends, I share the loss.

I worked with Tommy in the 70s at Maratta Productions and Ct Dragway.
He was always the helpful one and fun to be with.
