We are shocked and very sad over Toms death. Bryan worked with him but we both have been friends with him for years and enjoyed many fun times, laughs and “toddies”. When we’re together he always talked about his nieces and nephews. As Bryan always said “ he has a heart of gold...great guy”. Our thoughts are with you all.

Cooney was one of the best friends I ever had. He had a heart of gold and would give anyone the shirt off his back (but don't ask for his sunglasses) ;). My condolences to the family. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Dear Brad, Debbie, Tim and Penny, We were very saddened to hear of Tommy's passing. We both knew him in our own ways. Larry through hockey and me through our family ties. Even though I knew Brad and Debbie best I did get to know Tommy quite well through both hockey and my work, where we would often chat long after his business with me was complete. He was a great guy with mega personality. I'm sure his passing has brought a great void to your lives. All our best to you and your families.

Cindy
