Tom did not suffer fools gladly and he had a cutting sense of humor. He was a master of well-timed sarcasm. Smart, fun, kind, thoughtful and generous, he was a true gentleman. Tom taught in the Rochester City School District for 32 years. He was passionate about music, especially jazz and bluegrass. A modern Renaissance man, he pursued interests in Inuit Art, travel, theater, literature, cycling, cooking and gardening. His water garden in Forest Lawn was a work of art! He will be forever missed.
At Tom’s request no service will be held. Donations in his memory can be made to Music Maker Relief Foundation, 224 West Corbin St., Hillsborough, NC 27278.
