He is survived by his lifelong companion and friend William "Billy" Newby; his siblings Ellen (Mike) Skinner, Jack (Tana) Groll, Carol (Joann Wolf) Groll, and Philip (Lee) Groll.

Tom worked as an Electrical wiring specialist for many years with Westinghouse and ABB. He fulfilled many roles as friend, nephew, brother, uncle, great-uncle and will be greatly missed, as will his bright blue eyes and resonating smile. Tom had a passion for Classic cars, building and collecting many model cars over his years. He was a connoisseur of music and food, with a great knowledge of both. Tom truly had an enthusiasm for learning and sharing his vast knowledge on historical architecture, as well as history overall.
