Most recently Tom had been working as a sales representative with Metro Supply, a stone and masonry supply company in Rockaway, NJ.

He also enjoyed hitting the links and playing a round of golf whenever he had the chance. He was also a huge Giants fan and was a season ticket holder for many years. His favorite pastime was going to the beach which he loved to do with his son and nieces and nephews. He had a love for music, and was the life of the party wherever he went. His most recent passion was working and developing his newly acquired farm, where he had turkeys, ducks and chickens with several expansion projects in the works.
