Tom was a very special person - he gave to his family, friends and community. I will miss him dearly and pray for his family. God bless and I know he will be in heaven because he lived his life in such a positive way that Jesus will certainly welcome him with open arms. Rest in peace.

I had the privilege to work with Tom at Regional Hospital. He was such a competent professional and always available with sound judgment and advice. Always so respectful and kind in addition to his great knowledge of the pharmaceutical field. My thoughts and prayers are with Tom and family- you will all be together again. I am so sorry that you have lost him in this world at such a young age. With sincere sympathy- Helen

Missing Thomas

I was so saddened to hear of Thomas passing. I remember when he was born. Spent my summer's in Dunmore, Scranton from the age of 7 to 15. Took Thomas to his 1st rock concert at the Pocono Rock Festival. He will be missed by many. My deepest sympathy to Marie, Tom Jr., and Christina. He is gone from here but lives in your hearts forever.

I heard Tom’s name mentioned at church on Sunday and was hoping it was another Mecca. I am so saddened by your loss. I worked closely with Tom @ Regional before we both left. He was such a wonderful man. I’m out of town both Thursday & Friday hence this note. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers.

My deepest and heart felt sympathy to Marie, Christina, and Tom Jr.
I'm heartbroken to see my friend leave us but I guess God has better plans for him. He will be greatly missed and he will be with his Mom & Dad once again.
Tom has given me many great memories as we grew up together and besides the fun playing in the band, we spent many days and nights as teenagers up at St. Anthony Playground.
We still got together in the recent years to jam and go for dinners just to talk about family, current things, music, concerts, to name a few. I would always ( and WILL always) think of teasing him about coming to hear my band when we would play late. I'd say "Tom, you better take a nap !"
Tom, I loved our times together and will cherish them until I see you again my friend. May God keep you in his Graces and may God bless your family and take care of them now in their time of sorrow and always.
