An honor to work with him, a gentleman and leader in all aspects of the fire service.

We offer our heartfelt condolences to Sue and the entire Mitchell family. My association with Tom began nearly forty eight years ago as FDNY "probies" and continued as firefighters assigned to nearby companies. Tom was the "real deal" doing what had to be done, always. We remained friends long after our retirements and across the miles. I'll miss you, Tommy, and fondly think of you, often. Sincerely, Mike and Mary Moody

First cousins by blood, Tom was the slightly older brother I never had. For many years, we grew up together during the summers in Highlands. That yard on the side of the house would be filled with roads we carved out for our cars and army trucks. I always looked up to him. Every so often I catch myself looking in a mirror and swear I’m looking at Tom. We both took after our beloved uncle in some ways, he frankly more than I. Like Unc, Tom could do just about anything with tools, especially when it came to cars. I swear he could take apart an engine and put it back together blindfolded. He loved to laugh especially when my mother would tell a story. During the Vietnam War, he was a Marine reservist. He was one of the few, one of the proud, one of the chosen. Most of all, he loved being a firefighter, sharing countless stories about the JOB even after retiring as a captain. He so loved being a grandfather, and along with Sue, he lovingly looked after Kaitlin and Samantha for many years. I have greatly missed seeing and speaking to him these past few years and I will miss him even more for the rest of my life.

Bill and Suzanne Canner left a message on April 23, 2021:
I first met Tom in FDNY Proby School way back in 1973. Tom was a great Firefighter and Fire Officer and respected by all that knew him. He also was a dedicated Husband, Father, Grandfather, and a great friend. Tom will be missed by all that had the pleasure of knowing him. With our deepest sympathy, Bill & Suzanne Canner
