Tom and his wife Brenda (also an ’89 St. Mike’s graduate) live in Essex with their three sons, Kyle (21), Darren (19) and Joseph (17).  All family members enjoy running, are sports fans, appreciate the gift of each day, and spending quality time together, while not taking themselves (or life) too seriously and regularly embracing laughter.
