  1. We both feel very priviliged to have known Tom. He had a special way about him, so kind, and so gentle and would do anything for anybody, at any time. He was also a big tease and was very good at predicting the outcome of some of my crazy decisions in life! We had many great times with Tom and will never forget his handsome, and devilish smile! My whole family grew to love him and my kids called him Uncle Tom. We will miss him terribly, but we’re also glad he is now finally at peace after a long suffering illness. Love you Tom and love and hugs to Pat and Michael. He will watch over you now and pray for you from above Mare and Lar Galbraith

  12. My condolences to the McCormick family on the passing of Tom. I attended Southern Connecticut State University where I first met Tom in 2003. He was one of the custodians in my dorm. About 3 years later, Tom and I crossed paths again when we worked for the shipping and receiving department at the school. While delivering around the campus Tom sometimes offered to buy me a soda. When I declined, he used to say .Com’on its only a buck, so I would let Tom buy me a drink.. Tom was the greatest guy and had a very positive spirit! The guys and I use to call him .Chiefy.. I last saw Tom about a year ago, when I went back to visit after graduating. Im gonna miss you Chiefy you were the best! Rest well my friend..Im gonna drink my sprite in honor of you!
