So sad to hear Tom has passed away. I was fortunate to be Tom's roommate during our PG year at Berkshire. He had a positive attitude, worked hard and always had a big smile. He was a great roommate and teammate and will be missed.

I am so saddened to hear of Tom's passing. I enjoyed the years that I was his teacher and High School Hockey coach.
