Tommy enjoyed skiing at Sunapee Mountain, selling real estate, bowling, spending time with his friends and family, and loved attending his two nephews sporting events and activities. He also loved great adventures with friends enjoying the beautiful beaches of Puerto Rico.
Kindness means different things to different people. The meaning is in how you choose to show it. Tommy showed through empathy, acceptance, kind gestures and thoughtfulness. He will be greatly missed!!
