Tommy lived much of his childhood in Queens before moving to Pearl River, NY. He joined the NYPD in 1986 and became a trainer for the Mounted Unit. In 2006, he retired after 20 years of service. He then joined the NYC Sandhogs where he was employed until the onset of his illness.
Outside of working, Tommy was an avid Rangers fan, loved riding his Harley Davidson, enjoyed traveling, hunted, watched many movies and was an amazing cook. Nobody makes ribs like Tommy. He could often be found on his deck barbecuing with a cabernet in one hand and a cigar in the other.
