Our son Thomas was a dedicated firefighter‚ as are his Dad and older brother. His other brother is a police Detective Retired. He and his youngest sister were especially close. Thomas was a devoted son to us‚ having built his house a few blocks from us. He was an avid cyclist riding two consecutive years from Bear Mountain to Boston for AIDS awareness. He belonged to a cycle club and enjoyed it so much. He intended to do a cycle ride in France this summer.
He volunteered his time at the Atlantis Aquarium. He was a certified deepsea diver‚ diving with the club team in Cozumel and Bovaire. He volunteered for the Dart Team.
He was so happy to have made his home here in Riverhead‚ New York. By the same token we were thrilled‚ too‚ if someone from the family was close by.
Thomas enjoyed life and helping people was always a priority for Thomas. We miss him dreadfully‚ but we imagine him in heaven as an angel doing good works. Our angel Thomas!
