    Tom was a friend of mine from playing in the Race and Sports book. We shared our likes between horse racing and football and enjoyed many good games and races. It will be hard to see his seat empty in the back row with the rest of the boys.

    Over the 40 years we worked at Belmont, Tom and I shared business and fun. Belmont sponsored a night at the track. Which of course you know was Tom's favorite thing. A horse named Belmont was running as the underdog but all of us bet on him. Belmont...  more

    Best uncle anyone could ask for! Tom treated me like I was his daughter, not his niece. We went to the Santa Anita track, Angel's games, Galaxy games, and I am sure we could've hit a football game too if we weren't winning big on the horses. I could...  more

    I loved Tom like he was family. When I was younger he would always take me to the Lions, Tigers and Red Wings games, even sometimes hang with him and my dad at Hazel Park race track. I love you Tom! I'll never forget you and will always consider you family
