My deepest condolences to the Fano family for your loss. Tom and I went to High School together. We were good friends at the time and teammates on the baseball team - he played a pretty mean 1st base and could scoop em out with the best of them. Although we haven’t seen each other for some time the news of his passing came as a shock. It made me think of all the laughs and good times we shared with him and our circle of friends all those years ago. Tom was such a good hearted guy and always quick with a smile or to crack a joke at your expense but, to his credit, could also take it in return as well. I’ve been thinking of him a lot since I’ve heard the news, he will be missed. Rest In Peace brother!

I met Tom as a liberal black kid trying to get accepted into Seton Law. We worked together, “debated” and talked politics despite being from different worlds. I ended up staying in contact with him and just loved talking politics through Facebook. His love for his family was something I just admired about him. I grew used to his posts honoring his father each year and in that WW2 picture you can see that Fano smile that has been passed from each generation shinning. Larger than life Fano I’ll miss you...
