Dear Christine, Erin, Connor and Molly, I was saddened to hear of Toms passing. Many wonderful memories between soccer and baseball. The one I cherish most is when I was told he comforted Joey after our horrific car wreck on way to a soccer game. He was a very special man, husband, father and coach. May He rest in peace and may the Lord and angels above embrace you, family and friends, providing you strength and love during this time. He will be missed. Sue Vilardi, Clearwater

Was sad to read of Tom's passing this morning in the newspaper. I have many fond memories of our younger days playing softball together with The Enforcers softball team, and all the parties and events associated with that. He will be in my my prayers for the peaceful repose of his soul and for you, his family, carrying on. My sympathies and condolences... Chris Weigl

Rest In Peace Tom. I will always remember that day 9-11, when you met 2 young people visiting from Ireland. They were stranded and you took them to your home in NJ for safety . They were able to assure their family that they were ok . May the angels come to meet you and bring you home. Love Aunt Ginger

Tom, you were a true blessing to all of us. No one more dedicated than you to protecting investors at NASD/FINRA. You were an outstanding colleague and friend, who even helped my son find a great soccer program in NJ. My deepest condolences to your family. Jay Lippman
