Tom was an alumnus of Penn State University and a Certified Public Accountant for over 30 years. Tom was a managing partner at Piaker & Lyons LLC and worked as a controller for F.S Lopke Contracting before officially retiring. He was a very intelligent man who enjoyed his profession and had a large network of clients, associates and friends that trusted him greatly. He worked very hard to provide for his family and would never take credit, always doing things for others before himself. He was a man of numbers, loved to collect baseball cards with his son, go on road trips with his wife and kept a very close eye on the stock market. He would go on coin hunts, collecting spare change and returning bottles to save; he will be missed dearly. The family would like to express their sincere gratitude to Dr. Michael Barrett, Dr. Richard Blansky, Dr. Kyung Kim, Dr. Pradeep Pallati the nurses and staff of Lourdes Hospital and Dr. Joseph Readling and his wonderful and caring staff.
