    Tom will be greatly missed Oyster Fest, Thanksgiving, Kalaloch are only a few of the great times. Tom won’t be there physically but will always be remembered.

    Tom was such a special friend to us. He gave the most touching blessings at Thanksgiving & Christmas Eve at Rick & Roxie’s, always remembering to include a special blessing to protect our Armed forces at home & abroad. He was proud to be an American, a good friend and loving partner of Cathy’s. He loved our children, Ashton and Brody, having special nic-names of “George and Earl” as they lovingly nic-named him “Bananahead.” Tom spoiled them with “Cheese-hurls”(Cheese-curls)& never missed a moment to hear about thier school & sports. We respected that Tom was a private man, keeping his feelings to himself. He & Cathy made such a great pair & a joy to be around. But around our kids, along with thier friends, Gabe & Taylor, his eyes sparkled, he smiled brightly, made bird-call whistles with his teeth, a heartbeat sound in his throat & the always popular belch to the Beach Boys song “Barbara Ann”. We will miss his smile, sincerety, and laid-back approach to life.

    Gonna miss that boy.
    Good-humored and, yes, laid-back.
    Always had a good thing to say, even in adversity.
    And he could sure bake a mean pie!
    Life is short – hug the ones you love, often.
    We won’t be forgetting Tom…

    I’ve had the absolute pleasure of working with Tom for nearly 10 years—-what a great guy! I will miss the ever present uplifting spirit, great humor, attitude of always willing to lend a hand. I am very blessed to have met Tom and will always treasure the time we worked together. What an unforgettable man!
    Until we meet again Tom~

    Tom was a great neighbor and friend. He was always willing to lend helping hand and was there for those who needed him. Tom had a unique personality and sense o humor. He will truly be missed by everyone who had the pleasure of knowing him.

  • Pamela(Courtney)Adanti says:

    Yes, Tom was a very private man especially about his health,emotions/actions even with his biological family. His famous noises with his mouth–forever remembered. When he returned home,always helped fix things for/with mom and dad. Words over his phone calls “Morning”,”Whatever” and at the end “Love Ya”. See ya in the hereafter brother. Love Ya always and forever Your Sister PAM

    We will always be thankful that Cathy brought Tom in to our lives. What a wonderful man. Our 31 partys, picnics, and any other gatherings we could dream up will never be the same. Yes we were on the receiving end of his never ending noise’s.(love the sound).Our Daughter Rebecca became Julie and Tom Became Frank. It was always a good day when Tom and Cathy were around. Tom will always be in our hearts. We will miss him.
    Love Ya Tom, Until we meet again.

    I feel so privileged and thankful that Tom became an important part of my life when he met my sister Cathy. He was such a big part of who we are as a family. I admired both he and Cathy for their strength and courage as they cared for each other in their times of need. I appreciated the love that he so freely shared with us, and the special relationship he had with my little grandsons. I will miss his sense of humor, and although he was such a private man, I will treasure those rare moments when he felt safe enough to share his deep feelings and emotions. I will remember him with love always. Nancy

    To my Dear Tom,
    Because of your love for my Cathy, and your special relationship with our family, I considered you my son in law. I will miss seeing you come through the door with Cathy. We always enjoyed good conversation, and we laughed together. I appreciate the help you always gave me. I will miss you Tom, and will think of you often. Love always, Harriet

    Dad, you will be missed every day until we all meet again in heaven. I can adoringly look in my childrens eyes and see you in them. You have taught us so much and we are using your teachings and instilling them in our children. You have the great ability of impacting everyone’s life. I love you so very much. I will see you later. Love your daughter Nancy.

    I worked with Tom for almost 5 years, and he was a great person. Always making jokes and bird calls. :)It has taken me a while to actually grasp the fact that my dear friend will no longer be walking through the office door. I miss his smile. Tom would give you the shirt off his back if you were in need. He was that kind of person. I am so very sorry he’s gone, but so very blessed to have had the opportunity to know him. My prayers are with all of his family and friends; I’m so sorry for your loss. Until we meet again, my friend. You will never be forgotten. Love you, Tom.
