Tom was passionate about music, movies, photography, and video games.  He loved traveling with close family and friends, spending winters in Florida, and cruising as often as he could.  He was a beloved Uncle who relished spending time, teasing & joking with his nieces & nephews, always amazing them with his quick wit, funny nicknames, and other shenanigans … always wondering what was funny.  He will be greatly missed but left family a treasure of memories.
