Tommy was a lover of music and not only could he play vicious air drums and the best air guitar you have ever seen, but he played the real things as well. He played in a band with some of his very best friends during his teens and twenties. If you knew Tommy you knew his passion for music. He could talk about it for hours! In his younger years he was also known to dance through his house without a care in the world. Tommy would do anything to bring a smile to your face, nonmatter who you were.
He was the most amazing, loving husband and father and he was loved like crazy!
