Trainor and his wife Athena of NYC, NY; two great nephews, one great niece; and many dear cousins and close friends.

He was positive, funny, non-judgmental and a listening-ear to all. The phrase most often said about him was “Tom is such a great guy” … and he was!  He hosted the annual family Christmas extravaganza which no one ever missed.

In his younger years, Tom thoroughly enjoyed his classic cars and going out fishing on his boat.

He will be sorely missed by so many.
