To Mike and the rest of the Sackley family:

He was always kind to me, even when I probably didn’t deserve it ( and he was only one of a few parents to treat me that way!) A genuinely kind man and always approached everything with a certain humor. Simply put, he was a real Mensch.
My deepest condolences.

I'd like to give my deepest condolences to the Sackley family. I learned so much from Tom in my days at Mi-Te. I didn't know it then but some of the things I learned from Tom would stick with me through the years . I'm so grateful for the opportunity Tom and Mike gave a very young man with really no work experience. I can truly say , it was everything for me. It changed my life in a positive way. Tom and the Sackley family will always have a special place in my heart.

Condolences to the family. Tom was family to all of his MiTe employees. I was very young when I met Tom as he was my moms boss and later mine. No matter the situation he was always 100 as they say today. We talked about him every time I went home because his art still graces my moms wall (pictures made out of watch parts). Thank you for giving me a place to learn and grow. I use those skills to this day and will always remember you. RIH peacefully. Gloria and Wendy

Mike, Terri ,Tim, Sandra,

So sorry to hear about Tom. I had a nice relationship with him every time I ran into him. He was always kidding me about everything. He was a great guy. I will miss running into him and Sandra around town.

I have lots of good memories of Tom from the Mi-Te Record days and am so happy I was able to see him last year when I popped in the downtown Mi-Te Printing store and that he remembered me. He really cared about his employees and I know he was a proud family man. Rest easy Tom - my deepest condolences to the entire Sackley family

Sandy Mike Terry Tracy Kathy, our whole family wants to extend our profound sorrow on Tom’s passing. We loved him so much. My own 1st memory I was about 3 years old being in your apartment on Pratt and being able to do whatever we wanted make as big a mess as we could and it was ok. True freedom at 3. Tom not only taught me how to ski but how become a true businessman. He was such a good soul. I can only hope and pray him and Carole are somewhere they can reminisce about all the good times. Michael
