December 14, 1946 – February 6, 2008
What can I say about my brother, Tom?
That nothing on earth, could break our bond
We fought & fretted, like most siblings do
At times, thought each other was from a zoo.
He even saved my life, a time or three
And he teased me a lot, believe you me
No other brother could have been the same
He was unique, eccentric and quiet the bane.
A gentle manner, is what he did have
A kind of wit, that made you really laugh
A friendly handshake or pat on the back
A kiss on the cheek an a bit of a yack.
He touched people’s hearts in a special way
Never a bad word, would he ever say
He had a very good sense of humor
And would never think to spread a rumor.
Because of his health, he suffered a lot
But complained to anyone, he would not
What can I say about my brother Tom
He was all of this and much, much more.
Tom was the son of Doreen & Willis Piercy, brother to Cathy Rossiter and brother-in-law to Mark Rossiter, uncle to Angela Tsangaris (Stathis) and Steven Root (Sonia), great-uncle to Stathis & Stavros Tsangaris, Stefano Root
There will be an open house gathering at the Eureka Clubhouse at 280-4th Street on March 1st from 1:30 to 3:30 pm. Everyone is welcome to come and recall the life of Tom Piercy.
