A longtime resident of Summit, N.J., Tom and his family enjoyed summers together at their Nantucket home. After coming to Princeton from his early years in Pittsburgh, Tom graduated with an engineering degree and worked at Bell Labs while earning a master’s degree in electrical engineering from New York University and then an MBA from Harvard. He enjoyed a long and successful career in finance with several firms prior to joining the private equity firm Liberty Partners as a senior managing director. He served on the board and as chair of Black Box Corp. and Rudolph Technologies.
Tom took pride in being the commissioner of the Summit Junior Baseball League for 10 years while coaching his sons. He also served as chair of the Henry H. Kessler Foundation, on the advisory board of Overlook Hospital in Summit, and on the board of the Summit YMCA.
It was always family that came first, and Tom was a devoted husband and father who loved spending time with his family and traveling and playing golf.
He is survived by his best friend and wife of 50 years, Candy; his sons Thomas, David, and Andrew; and his six much-loved grandchildren.
We bid farewell to a splendid family man, accomplished professional, and devoted volunteer.
