Tom and I had a regular breakfast appointment, where we would go to our favorite places and talk about the trips we were planning or whatever else was the news du jour. Good times with a great friend and everlasting memories. Missing you terribly, Tom. RIP.

I'll always have the memories of Lake Powell. Lying on top of the houseboat at sundown just wa wahing til late into the evening about everything and anything! You always made me smile even through both losses of Dad and Mom. You were such a great support and a genuine soul. You will be terribly missed but will always leave a special place in my heart and soul. RIP UT.

Very sad to hear the news from Tommy on Monday 2/21/2022 that you passed away on 2/5/2022. It seems like yesterday we were talking and joking about the hospital "Turkey Club" on Thanksgiving Day during the stent procedures. Right after that dinner with Tommy at Yoshi's and off for a Christmas cruise. Hard to believe you have passed. I have many fond memories spending time with you at 154 Bergen Avenue while growing up and learning about bowling, hunting, boating, flying, and golf. I remember grandma looking at us in the driveway unloading your new Kawasaki 175 in candy blue off the bumper rack of your Torino and that story of the accidental wheelie on the way to Jersey City. There was always something interesting cooking...trips to Eagans on the Belleville Tpk. for "brown bag" late night take out orders or off to Two Guys in Kearny for sporting or camera equipment. The slide shows and scenic photography of the Grand Canyon / Colorado River are memorable...especially the water fights between the boloney boats to keep cool in the blazing sun and heat. Lately some of our work on the family tree. You loved life and lived well with a mix of homes and travel over the years. A confirmed bachelors life for sure. Tommy will miss the frequent meet ups and dinners with you. We will all miss you. RIP Uncle Tom...Tom, Lucy, Emily, Tommy, and Ben. Sláinte "UT"
