Tom was born and raised in Brentwood, NY, and after joining the Navy and traveling the world, he returned to Brentwood to build a home with Fran and raise their family. After retiring, they moved to Cornelius, NC in 2007. He and Fran loved spending their summers at Keen Lake in Waymart, PA. Tom was a vibrant man, full of life and always willing to lend a hand. He was everyone’s go-to handyman. Affectionately known as “Mr. Nice Guy,” his “dad-style” puns always elicited a giggle and a groan, and his smile was truly infectious. He enjoyed golfing, boating, woodworking, spending time with family and friends, and relaxing in any sunbeam he could find.
