Pops, where do I start??!! I am soo sad that you are gone but I know you are in a better place and happy with “my girl”. I want to thank you for accepting me and Brian and Dylan into your family. In the past 9 years we have made a ton of great memories with your family. Thank you for raising a great son. He learned from the best. You always made us laugh.

I knew Tom from tobyhanna army depot. He was a good friend and always fun to talk to. Unfortunately we lost touch after retirement. Don’t know how you ended up in Tennessee but I guess that’s where you wanted to be. RIP old friend

I've known Tom for many years. He was an important contractor at the Tobyhanna Army Depot. He was always dependable and available when it came to emergencies supporting our troops in the Middle East and all over the world. I missed him when I retired and wondered where he went. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. I hope you all can find peace with your loss.

As kids,Tommy was the cousin I would always play with when I came up to Scranton to visit. We were just months apart in age. I have many fond memories of playing up on the railroad tracks with him. They were great times. Love and condolences to all my cousins.

To Lori,Tom and families, my deepest sympathy for your family for your loss. Tommy was my first cousin, Angelo Maro was my father. As a kid we always did a lot of things with Uncle Tony’s family. Very fond memories. Tommy always had a special bond with my mom, June. He always was smiling and had such a great personality. He will be greatly missed, but he is with Janet, the love of his life.

He was heart-broken when my Mom passed. He was not the same. He is with his sweetheart again. Thank you so much for your condolences.
