Frieze, They broke the mold after they made you. So many fond memories from the Arco days to Tom's Auto to The Ivy Hill bar, To North Wales and everything in between. You were the only man on earth who could yell at me louder than my father. You put me up when I had no where to go. Any time of day you were there to help a brother out unconditionally. Your kindness and generosity was underrated and only masked by the gruff persona we came to know as "Crazy Horse". I regret not staying in touch, but I look forward to seeing you again my friend. God Bless,

Louie "The Snail"

Tom, I am going to miss you my grumpy, kindhearted friend. You brought joy to me and many others who knew you and for me personally you re-taught me history & and realigned my political thinking with your intelligent knowledge that was within your head. You may have been sarcastic sometimes but you also brought love of many things to me and just about everyone else who met you.
You were funny, kind and generous to people of lessor means who needed help. There wasn't a person who wouldn't smile while in your presence but once in awhile you if you could only shut up on occasion most of us would sigh with relief like when explaining his stack of military paraphernalia at Chapter 590 events. Don't get me wrong everyone enjoyed listening to you with intensity and awe about what you knew & explained to people who did not have military savvy but Tom you could have made it a shorter dissertation so we could have left the event before it got dark.
As I had said about you many times that YOU were the glue that helped the members of Chapter 590 stay together because without you we may have failed as an post military veterans organization. God Bless you for what you did for us as members and now that you are gone, the world is a little less joyful & knowledgeable and may you rest in peace with GOD. You will never be forgotten because you will always remain in our hears. I love you brother and so do many other people.
Rest in Peace for Eternity my Friend,
Rich (Guido) Caputo
