He was a very active and devoted member of St. John Lutheran Church in Hamlin. Tom coached 7th and 8th grade basketball at St. John Lutheran School. In the past 2 years he was a faithful helper and “bouncer� every week at Lifetree Café. Tom was a dedicated college basketball fan, and he is in the Athletic Hall of Fame for his football accomplishments at his high school alma mater, Bishop Duffy, now Niagara Catholic in Niagara Falls. He could be found repairing all of his kids’ cars in his garage while listening to the Rolling Stones and Bob Dylan. Tom loved his family more than life itself, and they were always the focus of his selfless love and devotion.
