Tom was a true shipmate whose pride in being a Corporal crew member was contagious and resulted in the opportunities for many of us to rekindle friendships and look back proudly on our Corporal days together. It is an honor to have served with him.

Cora and Joe with T

This is one of my favorite pics of T and our grandparents. He is just so damn happy here. He's heading back to New London and the submarine USS Corporal.
I'm so proud of him and he looks so good in his whites.

Tom was a big hit at Craig's Pond, Maine. He had a big personality , a kind heart and the kids loved him. His ability to tell stories was masterful. He will be missed by family and friends. Rest in Peace!

Tom served well his country and his Navy. He was a pleasure to have on board.
In later years he was instrumental in organizing a series of reunions which provided his shipmates with the opportunity to recall and share memories of that time. We will miss him.

I worked with Tom at DCFS for several years and remember him as a good friend. Tom was very knowledgable and always had a keen sense of humor. I will miss him. My prayers are with his family.

I have wonderful memories of playing in our Main Street backyard with T, Rennie, and Shelley! And visiting the Bartletts at the cabin on Dyce's Head. I'm glad I saw everyone not so long ago, by the State of Maine docked in the harbor. Safe passage T! Now you are everywhere! Love, Maggie

"T" was my best friend. You could count on his help for anything. From the time we were little kids , thru to the end, he was always there for me. What more can a little brother ask for. I'm sure missing him!
