  • Unfortunately, we haven’t seen Tom for a number of years, so news of his passing hits pretty hard. Hearing about his death, my first thoughts were of the many times he’d come bursting into my parent’s house on Ratchford Circle in Quincy. He’d loudly announce his presence with broad smile and without taking a breath say to me ” hey meathead”. During my 20s that phrase would morph into “hey meathead…I have more hair than you”. He never called my brother meathead – I never figured out why? He would then runoff a number of off-color jokes directed at my mother, attempting to make her blush after each one. The world is a quieter place without him.

  • Dear Barbara and Karen. So sorry to hear about your loss . I pray that your faith will help you through this. Even when our love ones die their love still surrounds us. God bless Janet Larkin

  • Tommy was kind to everyone. He was a lot of fun to know. When I came back to Quincy. He would tell me everything I missed and what was happening to everyone we knew. Good and sad.

  • Rest peacefully Tom. My deepest condolences Barbara, Tom,Karen,Matt and families.❤️

  • Prayers for the Logan Family.

  • I had a dream about Tom on Sunday night. He and I were talking about talk radio on WBZ as we often did. I decided to google him today and found his notice. I am heart broken for your loss. He was a good man and made life at TCPL tolerable with his happy attitude and jokes. My thoughts and prayers are with you all. RIP Thomas!

  • Barbara and family I am so sorry for your loss, Paul and him will have a lot to talk about. Prayers for you all

  • Dear Barbara, Tom will be such a loss to Houghs Neck. He was kind, generous with his time. When I had my house fire he was here for me. He wouldn’t let the beautiful wooden ceiling go to waste nor the China closet.He carefully removed both and are now part of my memories in the new home. He always had a friendly hello for me as he visited the Pumpy on his rounds of the Neck. God bless you and your family and I thank God for Tom.
