During his time in the reserves, Tom mainly helped with performing military funerals. He was a retired bricklayer, with a career lasting over 50 years, where he worked as a foreman for Krenkel & Whitlock (Philadelphia, PA). He was also a member of two local bricklayer’s unions: Local 64 in Philadelphia, PA, and Local 1.

He had a true passion for anything involving airplanes, and even had the opportunity to solo fly small planes during his younger years at the Butter Valley Airport in PA. He loved to sing his family songs that got stuck in his head (even though he was notorious for forgetting and/or messing up the lyrics). Most of all, he enjoyed eating good food, cracking jokes whenever he could, and spending time with his family. Tom was everyone’s favorite guy. He had a big, contagious personality and an even bigger heart. He always had a way of making you feel loved and protected, especially if you were family, and he will be so very missed by all. Inurnment,, along with Military Honors, will take place Monday, May 2, 2022, 1 p.m. at Calvary Cemetery, Cherry Hill, NJ If so desired, memorial contributions may be made to Randall’s Rescue (www.randallsrescue.com).
