May God comfort and strengthen Tommy’s family. He will be dearly missed.

Tommy never thought you would be taken so soon. Where do I begin. We grew up as kids together in Eastpines, MD. Tommy and I were the same age, and shared the majority of our classes together. We went to Wildercroft Elementary, followed by Kenmoore Jr High, and then our kind of short stent at Parkdale. We lived life to the fullest, and our many memories will what I remember most, some left best untold right! You were always my big brother so very protective. I remember the kids who for months would not leave me alone about my lunch money. The one day we were together, this same kid is strolling on our grounds when we were walking. I said there’s that kid Tommy. He said that’s him, I said yea. Next thing I know Tommy grabs this kid, hits him so damn hard he gows through the T-shirt store window. Tommy said there’s your lunch money now punk. This kid left our neighborhood, and then we did the polite thing and cleaned up all the glass both inside and out. We also had to clean the store at closing time for the next 2 weeks to pay off the debt for the store window. Yes we were raised right. The owner asked who was that kid, Tommy said he was the school bus bully. The owner said, nice job Tommy, but next time can you spare my window. Needless to say, Tommy didn’t care for bullies. On that note, he always had a huge heart, big sense of humor, and a shinning personality. He loved hanging out with his family and friend, and had the boom box playing rock n roll. Tommy was the little, but big brother whom his sister were quite protective of. The one thing that gives me peace, I know your sitting in heaven with your mom and Michelle with a cocktail in your hand.
I love you and will miss you bunches. You will be the one we never run out of stories. Give mom and Michelle a big kiss for me! Until we meet again! Love Always! Lil Frey XXOO

We were so very sorry about losing a dear friend, Tommy, so unexpectedly at such a young age of 53. We left Naples on June 18, 2020, for our summer home in High Point, NC, and was not in town to attend Tommy’s funeral. We saw all the great pictures, and read the nice comments. Tommy will be greatly missed. We feel deep sorrow. We are thinking of the whole family, and sharing your loss with loving sympathy and compassion. May you rest in peace, Tommy!

Tommy was my handyman and my friend and I just found out today that he had passed. He was known as the most resourceful fix-it guy in Naples( not the cheapest). He was a delight to be around and I could not believe how hard he worked. There was no job too small or too large. He seemed gruff to the uninitiated I’m sure, but I can always remember that impish wry little smile that was his giveaway. Rest in peace my friend. Love David Davis
