As Grandpa's namesake, Tom adored his grandfather and has attempted to live a life to make him proud. Grandpa played a prominent role in many of Tom's favorite childhood memories, especially fishing in Montauk. I remember Grandpa as a sweet, loving, gentle man who never had a cross word for anyone. He will be missed.
Grandpa lived a healthy, happy, long life. His final days were spent in the loving company of his children and dear family and friends. Should we all be so lucky.
