Thomas was a kind hearted guy who loved to make people laugh. His friends would often talk about how Thomas was very tough on the exterior but a big softie inside who just wanted everyone to be happy. He accomplished that through his many jokes and stories he would tell. At the young age of 8 he found his love for animals especially dogs. For his 8th birthday he received Cookie, a dachshund who is now 14yrs old. This later steered him to his job as a maintenance worker at the Barker Lounge. After a brief stint with wrestling, Thomas found his true love for the sport of Rugby. It all started one day in middle school when he came home with a flyer for the local rugby team. The last team he played for, The Union County Mud Turtles were very near and dear to his heart. Thomas had a great ear for music and loved rock and roll, his favorite artists Bowie, Roxy Music, Credence Clearwater Revival and the Doors among many others. He also loved fishing and the great outdoors.
Thomas is survived by his parents; Patricia Cunniff and Donald Dazzo.
