with the desire to bring Junior Hockey to Norwich -

The majority of his tenure was as General Manager of the club leaving an impact with generations of Merchant players still felt today. His vision of how a junior hockey team should appear was set in place and still the foundation of the club today
Tom's legacy will forever be enshrined with the Merchants and the community of Norwich as a whole. His commitment and dedication will never be forgotten.
The Norwich Merchants express our sincere condolences to Tom's family and friends.
