I had the pleasure of working wth Thom over the course of a few years when I was hired to produce some marketing videos as well as a physician recruitment video for Lewis County General Hospital. Thom was a great guy. He was funny, charming, creative, and incredibly smart. He took great pride in his work, and he inspired all those he worked with to give 110%. He was a pleasure to work with. I feel blessed that I got to enjoy his company, hear his stories and call him my friend.

Thom and I worked together at Lewis County General Hospital, both of us from the Bronx and both moved to the great white north, Used to call him the Big Kahuna, was very inspirational, unfortunately we both left LCGH and promised to keep in touch, ultimate shock when I learned of his passing, loved his wife and family very much. Will miss you buddy from the bottom of my heart. From our family to yours our deepest condolences

I'm so sorry for your loss. I've heard so many good things about Thom from Christian over the years. He must have been a great man and a great dad, because he raised a great son. May God give you all peace during this difficult time, joy as you remember the years of love and laughter you shared with Thom, and clear direction for the future.

I'am so very sorry to hear of Thom's passing. I got to know him while working at Lewis County General Hospital. What a great guy and lots of fun to talk to. He always had something clever to say to make you laugh and make your day. Also kept me supplied with candy and bubble gum. I remember having a lot of great conversations with Thom. He will surely be missed. His family will be in my thoughts and prayers.
