Growing up across the street from Tom and Mary presented thousands of interactions and in reflecting back has triggered many memories. He was my “Italian neighbor” (reference to Gary Dee’s Stand-up bit) and glimpse into an era I was so curious and proud of. My personal “one on one” experiences with Tom were limited but valued. This was a man who was always smiling. Always happy to see you. Whether it was out the door daily with Mary to walk or at the social mingling after Sunday mass. Tinkering in the barn and tending his garden kept him youthful, grounded and active for many years. This, a lesson I carry with me. I remember getting locked out of the house after school on an occasion or two and wondering over to Tom and Mary’s to seek refuge. They were both welcoming and eager to chat about life and family. This brings me to my most prominent memory. Tom D’angelo was the patriarch of his massive family. When the holidays rolled around the quiet house across the street came to life with laughter and love. It was powerful and inspiring to see. The man loved his family with every ounce of his soul and it showed in everything he did. His encouragement, support, wisdom and love for life have affected me. I have made and maintained friendships with his family members and every time I talk with Tommy or Mike I can feel the essence of their father. It’s a comforting and familiar feeling. It’s been a sad few days of reflection littered with grins and positive memories. Gifts from a man we can all try to emulate in some fashion. Tom will be missed by many but his legacy lives on brawnier than most. Thanks for keeping Pitkin Hill Rd a haven for the spirit and sanctuary for the soul, Tom. Also, thanks for letting me hunt and wonder your slice of land. Rest in Peace Neighbor. V/r, Kurt Schaffer

Tom and I worked together on many projects as Industrial Arts/Technology Education teachers. He was always ready to help out and we were able to accomplish many things, including the end of year Mall show and awards dinners. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family and friends. He will be missed. Doug Beard

Uncle Tom was the best! He did everything with heartfelt enthusiasm, sincerity, hospitality and joy! A most generous host to his guests at all of his kids' weddings, anniversary parties, reunions, or at the farm- he made sure we all had a good time! Thinking of all of you, especially Aunt Mary, at this sad time of loss. May God 's promises bring you comfort knowing he is at the threshhold of an eternal life of peace and joy! Love, Marie
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My deepest sympathy to My D’Angelo family. They broke the mold when he was born. He is/was a true gentleman my whole life. I don’t remember him ever being angry. Some of the best memories I have were spending the summer in Binghamton NY. My cousins were so gracious to let me stay with them, and allow me to feel the love that they all had with my aunt and uncle. I was so fortunate to see them a year ago this last September, when we went to Oswego New York, To take my mothers ashes home to her family. I will never ever forget the feeling of the love they both showed me, and I absorbed deeply. This earth has lost a true gentleman. Uncle Tom you will truly be missed, and I thank you and I love you for being the man you were. To my cousins I will pray for your strength and comfort. I love you all and I’m only a phone call away if there’s ever anything I can say or do to comfort you at this time. My precious Saint Mary Helen, I love you dearly and forever. 🌺💙💔
