I met Tom in 1978 at Albany Dodge, we sold Dodges and became great friends! I moved to Vail, Colorado in 1983. Tom came to visit and skii about 1984. I never moved back to New York, and we both raised families 1800 miles apart. We lost touch for many years and then reunited by cell phone several years ago. When we talked it was as though we never had the geographical split. He was still one of my two best friends ever, and we told each other that til or last call about 2 weeks ago now. He always told me about his Eileen and girls, Sara and Erin. My deepest thoughts go out to them now. I know Tom is up there in Heaven, cause there hasn’t been a nicer guy ever around me, since I left Albany! I will think of him a lot. Here is to a Good Guy, sadly, Tim

Tom sold my wife, Carolyn, and me our very first commercial vehicle for our business, PJ's Barbecue Catering Service, in the early 1970's. From then on, we relied on Tom throughout the years whenever we needed a new vehicle or just needed advice. He was always very patient with us and went above and beyond in meeting our needs. He was the best friend anyone could ask for in the car business.

I've got such fun memories of Tom that I will hang onto forever. He always made us laugh and I will miss my baby brother terribly. I'm glad he is at peace at last.

Our sincere condolences to all of you. We knew Tom as Peggie's little brother. He was always a lot of fun to be around, especially at " the falls " - our swimming hole up the road from his house. May your happy memories help you through your loss.
