He deserved the tribute of memories & music

Posted by Patrick Schurr | July 21, 2018

I planned to do office work most of the day since we were to get rain, so far, I got my work done, and the rain was spotty.  This afternoon, Charlotte and I attended a memorial service for a close friend of ours, Tom Verzella who died last week.  I met Tom and his wife, Maureen through Young Republicans over 30 years ago.  Tom helped with a lot of party work over the years, but never ran for any office himself.  He taught school early in his life, then sold cars, then taught school again at the end of his career.  He was a great musician who I played with many times including a number of years when we both were part of the Cathedral of the Blessed Sacrament’s Brass Quartet.  The service was packed with folding chairs providing additional seating in the back, front and in the aisles.  I’m not sure he would have liked all of the attention, but he deserved the tribute of memories and music.  We’ll miss him.
