Uncle Tom always greeted me with a big smile on his face "Hi Bryant" making me feel welcome at the house or out at camp.
My Dad would always tell me what a good ball player he was and mentioned him being a catcher which added to my fondness of him. My Dad would often tell me how he would ask Uncle Tom to join him and play in Solvay on the over 50 + softball league.
RIP Uncle Tom

I knew and admired Sully for many years, Eastwood, Nimo and as a Union Brother. He did a lot for the Brotherhood. With My deepest sympathy and a prayer for an old friend. Sincerely, John Kavanaugh
