A graduate of Springford Area High School and a Penn State Football enthusiast, Tom enjoyed traveling, playing golf, watching and attending sporting events, coaching, hosting parties, grilling food for family and friends, taking trips to the cabin, and spending time with and adoring his grandchildren. He was an extremely hard worker and recently retired after over fifty years at the same company. Tom was a member of The American Italian Bocce Club in Royersford and the VFW Post 6341 in Royersford. He was a wonderful son, brother, father, uncle, nephew, friend, leader, and his favorite title of all; PopPop.
He is survived, and will be sadly missed by his brother John, his brother Steve and his wife Kim, as well as his three children Kelley Sidlo and her husband Mike, Bridget Barbieri and her husband Chris, and Joe Walsh and his wife Ashley.
