Most of all, Tom was dedicated to his family. As a young Dad, he looked forward to his family's annual ski trip to New Hampshire, and he and Liz enjoyed traveling the world, visiting places such as Italy, Monte Carlo, and his favorite spot in Bermuda.

Back at home, Tom loved being surrounded by his family during the holidays and was absolutely delighted to see his family grow with the addition of his grandchildren.
