A Celebration of his Life will be held on Friday, March 11, 2016, at 5 p.m. at the Dennett Craig and Pate Funeral Home, 13 Portland Rd, Buxton (Bar Mills).
LAKELAND, Fla. - Tommy had always been admired for his ability to deal with his disability due to a diving accident at 17, which left him paralyzed. He was intelligent, silly and a practical joker. He loved his family, friends, poker and the Patriots. He was Unc to some, father figure to others, and a special friend who would listen. Tommy was adored by everyone who knew him. Our hearts are broken by the loss of this wonderful man on Feb. 23, 2016. Cancer took him from us but it could not take his big smile. This is how we will remember him. His family would like to thank Cornerstone Hospice of Florida for their tender care and compassion.
He is survived by sister Helena Fogg of Florida, sister Judith Giusti and husband John of Maine, brother Richard Willey and wife Marita of Florida, sister Sharon Noren of Minnesota, sister Pamela Willey of Florida, sister Wendy Eldridge of Massachusetts, sister Cindy Willey of Maine, brother Ron Willey and wife Cathy of Maine, sister Rena Eliassen and husband John of South Carolina; and many adoring nieces, nephews and cousins in Maine, Minnesota, Massachusetts and Florida.
The family invites you all to come share in celebrating the life of this awesome guy. Tommy would like a deck of cards instead of flowers!
