I miss you so much Thomas!! You are the love of my life and I will always love you. I know you will be watching over all of us and taking care of us. I love you with all my heart and you will always be with me.
To robin and Tom’s family my heart felt condolences and prayers are sent. To help in these sad times. God’s speed my good friend
Thank you Jack. You have been a good friend to us and Tom certainly enjoyed interacting with you!!!
Robin, So sorry for your loss, suddenly and I’m sure hard to process. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and the family during this time.
Love, Nancy and Tom
Thank you Nancy! Your thoughts and prayers are very much apprecited!!!
My deepest condolences to Robin, Ryan and Amy as well as all your grandchildren. Tom was the greatest. He was my work Dad at Henry. He always looked out for me and always had words of wisdom to share but also told me to get back to work a time or too. I was lucky to have him in the office behind me where if I needed a good laugh I could just turn around to see him sitting in either his king crown, viking hat or his mining hat with lights. He always had plenty of snacks in his desk drawer and a ten dollar bill with a sticky note that read Megs emergency lunch fund as he knew I would forget my lunch and purse at least once a week and didn’t want me to go with out lunch. He had a great sense of humor and an even Bigger Heart. He was proud of his family and talked about them often. We enjoyed seeing his calendar each year to see how his grand children were growing up. I will miss our texts and chats and will miss him dearly.
My thoughts and prayers are with you at this time.
Meghan, that is a wonderful tribute to exactly describe Tom to a tee. From the antics to caring about others to his love for his family. Beautiful tribute. Thank you!
Robin my heart is heavy with sadness for you and Tom’s family. The greatest love of your life gone but what wonderful memories of love to help you through all the healing. I will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Love Aunt Margie
Thank you Aunt Margie! He was the love of my life. We do have so many wonderful memories that I will have to.focus on going forward. I miss you and I hope that you are well!! Love you!!

Michelle & Sean
Thank you for your kind words. He will certainly be missed by many people. He was an incredibly special person!!!
Dear Robin and your beloved family,
We are heartbroken for all of you. Tom was one of a kind and had a quick, wonderful sense of humor….. he was so caring of others and brought light and laughter anywhere he was. You and Tom were the love of each other’s life and a beautiful couple who cared about each other , your family and giving to your community. He will be missed by so many but he will always be in your heart and here in spirit. We pray for strength and God’s comfort for you..
With Love, Bob and Rose Delaney
Rose and Bob, thank you!!! You knew him well and knew him to be a funny, sweet and caring man. I know that we will all miss him terribly. A person like him is a special gift. I love you!
Robin, I don’t know what to say, that hasn’t already been said here. Tom was a great guy and we both loved him so much.
As brothers-in-law go, he was one of the best!
He may have had a quiet disposition, but you could tell the wheels were turning. He was smart and witty, and many times I wished I knew what he was thinking because I knew it would be perfect!
I loved his sense of humor, his love of cigars, and how relaxed he always seemed to be. We could all take a few pointers from him in that respect.
I know every one of us loved him and will miss him dearly, Sheila in particular. She says she has a special connection with him.
We speak for the entire family when we say we wish strength and comfort to you and the rest of his family. We love you.
Thank you!!! I love you guys so much and he loved you too!! He loved to talk cigars with you and was so happy that you liked the ones that he sent you. Sheila, he loved your happiness no matter what. You two were more than in laws. You were his brother and sister. And your kids and grandkids were his family too. He loved being Uncle Tom to them all!!!
Love you guys with all my heart!!
Robin, Amy, Ryan and the entire family,
I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Tom at Henry. I am in the California office, but each time I came out to Pennsylvania Tom had a wonderful smile and would always make me feel welcomed at the office. He was a very warm person and I know he will be greatly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
Thank you Kathy!! His smile was one of the many things that I loved about him. Thank you for your kind words!!
An Amazing Man! I will keep you all in my prayers.
Kenwood, he loves coaching you!!! He still talked about you and that team!! Thank you for your prayers!!
I obviously meant to say Lenwood…..my apologies!
My deepest condolences to Tom’s Family. I am a sales person for Henry in another state. I only met Tom in person one time, however talked and shared many end of the day laughs over the few years we worked together. Even thought we only met once knowing and talking to Tom, you became part of his family. Tom, was a “can do” kind of guy and could ALWAYS be counted on to get the job done. No one was better at what he did for us sales guys. He will be deeply missed.
Thank you Scott! His personality came across even over the phone. He loved being able to help everyone. Thats what made him so special!!
My sincere condolences to Robin and your Family. I’ve known Tom for many years. He was a great coworker, friend, husband, father and grandfather. The personality, the humor, the laughs the fun times we all had. Even though I’ve lost touch over the years he will be greatly missed. May you Rest In Peace my friend. You will be sadly missed.
Thank you Chris! You knew Tom for a long time and saw his humor in all the silly antics that he did at work. He was like that at home too. He could always make us laugh. He was a kind man and a very loving friend, father, grandfather and husband. His whole family will miss him incredibly. Thank you for your kind words!!
I’m so very sorry for your loss. Tom was a kind and thoughtful man with a great sense of humor. I can assure you that anyone that played basketball at HGP is sad yet thankful for the opportunity to have known him.
Thank you Joe. It means alot to hear that. He put his heart and soul into coaching because he loved it so much!!
Robin and family

Robin and Family
Tom was always such a pleasure to work with at Henry for the last few years – he always made me laugh when he’d call. So sorry for your loss.
Laura thank you. The ability to make others laugh and enjoy life was one of the most special things about Tom and one of the things that will.be mostly missed. Thank you for your kind words!
Robin and family.
Tom was one of the hardest working employees that the Henry Co ever hired. He supported us reps out in the field with professionalism, class, humor and dedication to his craft. We loved to talk about golf and hoops and he always made you smile. Even when he was having a rough day you never knew it. I will miss hearing his voice on the phone. RIP my friend. Wishing fairways, greens and 3-pointers every day in Heaven.
Peter, thank you!! Picturing him hitting great shots on the golf course and on the basketball floor is a lovely was for us to think about him. Im glad that you got to know him and his special ability to make others happy. He spoke fondly of you often!
Robin and family.
An amazing man who taught me a lot about life and basketball. RIP Coach Finn.
Thank you Phil!!! He loved coaching. It made him so happy to interact with kids and help them in basketball and hopefully life!!
Robin and family.
I will always remember the “Florida golf trips” with Tom, Steve F. and Jim B.. Tom was one of the nicest guys I have ever met and I will miss him very much. My thoughts and prayers go out to Robin and Tom’s family.
John, he enjoyed having you join them in Fla that year!! Thank you for your thoughts and prayers!!
Robin and family
To the entire Finnegan Family, I am so sorry for your loss. I worked with Tom for 11 years at Henry. He was always there to help me out when I needed especially when I first started. I would often travel to visit customers who Tom dealt with regularly. They all would mention to me what a great guy Tom was to deal with and what an asset he was to the company. He will be deeply missed.
Thank you Craig. It means alot to us to hear how people felt about Tom. He really did want to help people and to make people smile.
Robin and family
Dear Robin, Amy, Ryan, and to all the beautiful grandchildren. And also to all who were blessed to have known him. He was a very special person. I am so very thankful that I had the pleasure and honor to work with him. He was more than a co-worker…..He was like a brother to me. I have so, so many memories for the almost 32 years we worked together. I will never, ever forget all the talks we had. I can’t express how much I will deeply miss him. He was such a very caring and loving human being. He loved life to the fullest. I could go on and on….
It was a beautiful service today.
Tom, You are in my heart and Love Ya
Wendy, thank you for all your thoughts, prayers and memories of Tom. You two worked together for a very long time and I know that you will miss him. I was so glad that you were able to be at his service today and to pass on your good memories of him. He will always be with all of us. Love you!
Robin and family.
Robin and Family – I met Tom when I began working at Henry 2+ years ago. He was very kind and welcoming to me, and I know how much he was and is loved by everyone at Henry. The world certainly needs more people like Tom. Please accept my deepest sympathies and prayers. God bless.
Karen, thank you for your kind words about Tom. He did have a way of making everyone feel welcomed and important. That was his special gift.
Robin and family.
Robin and family: I worked for Money Products way back when- over 20 years ago. I was in the Waterford NY office and when that closed, I worked out of Kimberton for several months but still lived in NY. I also was a youth basketball coach and eventually became a high school girl’s and youth basketball referee for over 25 years. Tom and I would speak often about the game we both loved. I always made it a point to seek out Tom when I was in Kimberton. I was shocked other of Tom’s passing and even though I have not spoken to him in 20 years, I feel a great loss. I was glad to have considered Tom a friend when I worked for Monsey. Please accept my sincere condolences and my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family.
Jack, thank you for your memories of Tom, his love of basketball and his friendship. It speaks to the impact that he had on people. He is greatly missed by so many people.
Robin and family
I was deeply saddened to find that Tom is no longer with us. He was always the bright light in the office. His passion for golf and basketball was unparalleled. His love for you and Amy was obvious by the number of times you and Amy were included in his every day conversations. I always had it in the back of my mind that I would eventually find my way to a Holy Ghost Prep game where I could see him in action and hear him say one more time: “Hey! What’s going on, JoeJoe?”
