Tom passed away peacefully on October 7th 2020 from complications of Alzheimer’s. Thomas and his loving wife Roberta (née Perotti) of 61 years have resided in Plantation, Fl for the last 29 years.

They were transplants from “Da Bronx.” He retired from the New York Telephone Company with his career spanning over 37 years from Line Installer to System Analyst.

Tom was an avid sports fan rooting for the Mets and Giants then jumping ship to cheer for the Marlins, Dolphins and Florida Panthers. He also loved golf and achieved the ultimate goal, a hole in one!
