I met Tom at a meeting of he Southeastern Writing Center Association when it was just getting started and I was writing center director at ECU. We drank a beer at the hotel bar and eventually found out, after about half an hour, that we were both from North Tonawanda. We called it "NT," as insiders often do and we both went to NTHS. He said he knew my sister, Mary Ann. When I asked her if she remembered Tom, she told me what a great guy he was. She could be tough on "intellectuals," but she said Tom was smart without having to show it off all the time. He is missed.

My first memory of my cousin is seeing him as a teenager running down the stairs of Aunt Maude's house, with band intrument in hand late for practice. Next was visiting him when he was stationed at Fort Dix NJ. Rest In Peace Tom
