    I graduated Nusing School with Tom. We had all our classes together. He made a tough time tolerable with his jokes and humor. Such a wonderful fun spirit. Makes me sad he is gone. I am praying for his family. I am so sorry for your loss.

    I had the pleasure of working with Tom and I will never forget the way he talked about his wife Jackie, and how much he loved her. He was truly one of a kind and always knew how to make you laugh. He will be missed by so many. Sending lots of love to the Creaser family.

  22. Sheila Palmer Feldman on April 15, 2021 at 8:20 pm

    I also sad to hear of Tom’s passing. I graduated with Tom at Westmoreland High. Tom and I both are artists, he was the most talented and funniest person I know. His paintings were so real and he even gave me pointers. The world became empty with him. My condolences to the family.

    • Sheila Palmer Feldman on April 15, 2021 at 8:27 pm

      World is empty without Tom😢

    Rom was a remarkable and memorable student for me. He always brought some much needed levity to the classroom. He will be missed by the world

  24. Andrew Allaire on April 16, 2021 at 9:22 am

    Jackie and Family: I was so shocked and saddened to hear this news. I first met Tom many years ago when we worked at Agway. He was a hilarious and a great guy. I hope and pray that your memories will carry you through this. Love to you Jackie.

    Sending love to Jackie and all Tom’s family. I know Tom only through Jackie’s love and passion to be there and help him. Her stories and Facebook posts painted a picture of a good man with many talents. May you rest in peace Tom.

  27. Kathy Jo Brown on April 16, 2021 at 7:16 pm

    Jackie and family. I am so sorry for your family’s loss. I am virtually sending you love and hugs through this painful time. You are all in my thoughts and prayers.

  28. Cindi Cresswell DeCotis on April 17, 2021 at 8:55 am

    To all of Tom’s family…
    I am so sorry for the extremely sad loss of your husband, father, grandfather, and brother. Growing up with Tom, Tim, and John holds many great memories. Babysitting for you three was like no other childcare job I ever had! You all were so entertaining and such good guys. I should have paid your parents to let me hang out with you!…Questionable TV dinners that even Bridget would not eat; MAD magazines; and frequent visits from Bela Lugosi and Jerry Louis!…SO many laughs. I hope your sadness will soon be replaced by only happy thoughts of Tom. Many caring thoughts and prayers to you.
    Peace to you all.

    • Cindi on April 17, 2021 at 9:05 am

      I forgot to tell you that my nine year old granddaughter has a passion for The Three Stooges. Every time we watch old episodes and I see her cracking up over Curly’s escapades, I always think of Tom.

  29. Christine Rosato on April 19, 2021 at 6:50 am

    Jackie, so sorry about Tom. Sending my deepest sympathies to you and your family.

  30. Laurie Green on April 22, 2021 at 1:06 pm

    RIP Tom…..what a sweet guy with a heart of gold. We went to grade school together and he would always tease me by pulling my pigtails! He will be missed. Sending my thoughts and prayers to Jackie and family. I am so sad. :o(

  31. Jackie Chontos on May 25, 2021 at 10:54 am

    To my Tommy – You are my brave heart and the funniest little brother, a talented musician, artist, woodworker, creative genious and a part of my soul forever. Phil and I will miss you.
