I only new Tom for a short time, But that time was enough to to show me that he was a good man and he was a loving husband, father, and grand father.

To the Dolce Family
My deepest condolences on the passing of Tom. I knew Tom from the Old Guard and my only regret is that I only knew Tom for a few short years. A great Guy who will be missed by all. May he rest in peace.

Tom was famous for his "groaners" and laughing at his own jokes before he could get to the punch line. Never did he miss an opportunity to tell a joke or a "groaner." My connection, besides The Old Guard, with Tom was that he was one of the true N Y Ranger fans within our organization.
I will miss his cheerful repartee at future meetings.
My deepest condolences to all his family.
