Tom was truly a Renaissance man who adored theater arts, the written and spoken word, and maintained throughout his life an affectious and deep spirituality that inspired all he met.

Tom was president of the Philadelphia chapter of the Screen Actors Guild and American Federation of Television and Radio Artists (SAG/AFTRA). He was a member of Actors Equity and was active in the TV and Film Arts industry.

Tom was a “Friend of Bills” and was involved and supportive within the recovery community.

In Tom’s memory, the family asks that you show an act of kindness for someone else, just as Tom would.
