I was shocked and sadened to hear that one of my closest high school friends, Tom Allen (TA) passed away. I hadn’t seen him since 1963 but always hoped to one day reconnect with him. My deepest sympathies go out to his family.

When in High School at Elmont, I played on the football team.  While I did not know Tom very well, he was a teammate and he did seem to be a really good guy. I haven't seen or have had contact with Tom since HS, but I would venture a guess then he became a "Stand Up" sort of adult. He entered the Nassau County PD right after HS and I understand he advanced there during his career in law enforcement.

Sadly, I think we have all lost a good man.

I was so sorry to hear that Tommy passed away.  I haven't seen him since shortly after our graduation.  It was in the summer of '63 and a few of us were in the parking lot of the Community Inn and Tommy pulled up, in uniform, in a Nassau County patrol car.  We had a few laughs and I never saw him again. I've been gone almost since then but I'd heard that he did well in law enforcement.  He was a really good guy, and that's the best thing anyone can say about someone.

Played basketball with TA for EMHS and we had many good times off the court as well. He was always a stand up guy you could always count on.

He will be missed.

When I read the message from Mary about Tom's passing I was shocked since I think of all of us as still in High School.  During these last few months I have been telling local friends and family members of sitting in Mr. Khami's (sp) English class with all of the top tier students, due to a scheduling glitch.  Sitting in front of Tom Allen he and I would play table football since I know, I never understood what was going on in that high level Engllish class.  I must say that Tom helped me to get better at the only sport I ever played...desk football.  Fast forward to my first year at UCONN, I flunked freshman English and had to take it again, at Nassau Community College and Mr. Khami was the instructor........fortunately, I did pass it the second time around.....and thanks to Tom Allen I was able to perfect my desk football game as a junior high school teach.  Thank you Tom!
