Here are some special memories shared by family and friends.
I often think back to when Tom was in OLV and came home with his new notebook. All told to write their names on it and he couldn't fit his name on one line. He wrote Tomga on the first line and nnon on the second. For years after he was known by the family as Tomga. I love you Tomga and miss you terribly. Rest in peace
Jane Gannon
One of the times he enjoyed and was totally in his element was when we were at the Rennaisance Festival and he, speaking the language of the the time, was ecstatic. Rest In Peace, my friend. Enjoy your travels. Victoria

Not only was Tom the Night Manager at NJCU Media Arts, he was the heart and soul of that department. He was loved by everyone for his inspiration, his influences, and his voice of reason for decades. Thousands of students came and went, and there was always Tom; helping the newbies figure out gear, cracking jokes with colleagues, and inspiring everyone! So many people can thank their careers because of Tom, and the helping hand he gave to everyone. He lives on with us all thru his stories, his jokes, and his inspiration. Go Habs!

My deepest sympathy to Tom's family for this big loss. You will be dearly missed at NJCU and your dedication. I will miss seeing you in the 1st floor Karnoutsos passing by to go back to your department. R.I.P Tom

My sincere condolences to the Gannon family. Tom was a sweet, mild mannered man. Enjoyed having conversations with him on campus. He will be deeply missed. R.I.P. Tom
