  1. I was shocked to read about Tom in the paper. My late brother Danny helped Tom pick out his first surfboard. I knew Tom through the John Stone Supply and he was a good and knowledgeable man. I’m sorry his life was cut so short. Sincerely, Tracy O’Connor

  2. we have many wonderful memories of Tommy from when we lived in CA-from dart shoots, skiing, birthdays,weddings,to progressive dinners. Luckily we have lots of pictures from those days. Tommy was a good friend who was always there and will be missed.

  3. I will surely miss Tommy, having first met him at the base of the Manhattan Beach Pier around 1964. We’d all hang out on an old storage shed that used to be there and catch hot tubes with the Pier Area Surf Club. Those days are long gone, but my memories of many, many encounters with Tom and his family will never die. Catch some light waves in Heaven for us big guy ………. you’ll have pleasant days and nights from now on.
