I was as shocked by the news of Tommy's passing as those who commented above. I have memories that go as far back as my years in elementary school. My parents, Pat and Stan Stern, were best friends with Tommy's parents for years. They'd meet at the Gear's house for drinks, and complete silliness.  And even Christmas Eves. They'd have so much fun. The kids, (my brother Jeff, Cathy, who my Dad named "Mud-Cat," and Tommy), would munch on whatever snacks the adults would share. Sometimes, they'd drop us off at the Lee Movie Theatre, probably to get us out from under their feet. In fact, on one of those movie excursions, Tommy sat next to me, and then, he put his arm around me. I thought I'd die! I didn't know what to do. I was probably 12 or so. I felt so bad, and so guilty, that I confessed to my Mom, like I had committed a sin.

And then there were the numerous times we'd all go to watch the Post 48 Red Socks little league team in Phoebus that Daddy coached. In fact, if memory serves me right, Big Tommy coached too.Tommy was such an amazing, talented, baseball player even then.  And of course, he always played the All Stars game.

There are years of wonderful memories of Tommy, and his family. I regret that I did not keep in touch these last several years. He was a good guy, who accomplished so much more than I could have imagined as a young girl. His family and his friends are blessed to have had him near, and to have had the opportunity to share laughter, and love with Tommy. He is missed.

It is always so sad to see another one of our Kecoughtan family leave this world. I remember his face so clearly. Although we did not stay in touch, I feel sadness for his loved ones deep in my heart. God bless you all.

Very sad news. What a dynamite personality! She certainly made her way through life and made her mark with her many, and eclectic activities. She was a beautiful spirit.

I am so sad about this news.  He was such a great friend back in "the day."  I am so proud of him for his service to our country. A pilot...wow! I am sure it was a great ride for him, just as every moment we all spent with him was a great ride.
