Tommy was always the organizer to keep the Macedonian guys in touch--from breakfast at Hygrades to the annual Christmas dinner at Rockys Restaurant when Tom brought feta cheese, olives, & baklava for an authentic Macedonian touch. Tom enjoyed comradarie with his Macedonian friends. We'll miss his personality and good humor.
We will miss our many telephone conversations and discussions. Tommy was always kind,loving,and humorous. He had a special quality that drew people to him. His memory will be eternal. God rest his soul. Our love to the family.
I am so sad to have just learned of this news. I grew up on Westbrook and was a frequent patron of his corner store. Him and his father were always to good to me and the rest of my family. Even after the store was gone, we kept in touch with him and always admired him, he was a great, giving man. God Bless him and his family that he has left behind.
So sad to have just hear this sad news of a great man, loved by all. He and his Dad was so good to my family. After the store closed we all stayed in touch, he made us all laugh. God bless Tommy. God bless his loving family left behind.
We grew up together. Tommy lived next door. Now and always Remembering very good times on Maybury Grand, Detroit, Michigan, 1942 until the 50s
