Tom enjoyed the simpler things in life. He worked for Catelli Brothers, Inc. in Camden for about 16 years as a butcher. Away from work, Tom liked to go fishing, watching tv, and relaxing on the weekends while listening to country music. He loved Dodge Rams, and he was very proud of his truck. He was always excited to tell people about all of the new features. Tom also had a love for elephants and had a hobby collecting elephant figurines. Tom had a witty personality and he loved to laugh, he was very funny even unintentionally. Tom first met Kelly while working at Philly Foods together in 1995. While working together, they instantly fell in love and later married on August 23, 1997.
In late August of 2020, he was diagnosed with stage 4 pancreatic cancer. Tom fought for months with treatment, but the cancer was very aggressive and still spreading.
