He is the police officer from Atlantic City that died as a result of being struck by a bus while directing traffic. He was attempting to stop the westbound traffic so that an ambulance carrying a small child injured in another accident could get to the hospital. It's so tragic....this family also suffered a severe blow in 1996 when Thomas' father Thomas Sr. was paralyzed in a motor vehicle accident on Route 206. Thomas Jr. leaves behind a 2 year old daughter and a wife. Just a tragedy. Hard to explain how wrong life can be. He was an avid surf-fisherman....loved his friends also....they used to fish on the AC beach at night for stripers, have a few beers and laugh...he had such a awesome and quiet personality. Anyone that knew him always spoke of how nice he was and NO ONE ever had a bad thing to say about him. He was a true gentleman, a devoted father and friend. God Bless you Tommy...I know you will rest in peace. You are a true hero...you really are.
