  1. My deepest sympathy to the family of Tom. I will always remember his smile. We graduated from LHS together.

  • I first met Tommy in 5th grade when my family moved from California to Peekskill. We both lived in Evergreen Knolls, swam at the same lake ( Lakeland Acres ) every summer, shared many classes and thanks to Tommy setting my ski bindings in 11th grade I broke my leg. Ha. I shall always remember him as the nicest, sweetest and by far the best looking guy all thru high school. We were good friends and my one regret is that we didn’t keep in touch thru the years. I’m not surprised his family came first, he was very much a family guy, always was fair and above reproach. Fact is, I trusted him more than anyone in high school. Only regret is I never told him how much his friendship meant to me but somehow I think he knew. My deepest condolences to your entire family. A tremendous loss for all of you. I pray your faith and memories will help you find peace. I will fondly remember Tommy helping me roll metal trash cans down the huge hill I lived on, above his house. I’m sure our neighbors appreciated all the garbage all over the road the next morning. Nice memories as a child.

  • Very sorry to hear about Tom’s passing. We went to school together, he lived nearby us and would come to our private lake (Hollowbrook Lake) during the winter to play ice hockey. In the summer, when school was out, he would come frequently to our summer community and hang out with the kids from the city…
    May he rest in peace

  • This is sad for me also even though Tom and I never got to know each other. As a kid going to Van Cort Elementary Tom was in many of my classes and I remember him as kind and very approachable. I wish I got to know him better.
