  3. Leslie (Trousdale) Costigan says:

    My condolences on the passing of your husband and father. Mr. Mammos (as I knew him) was my business teacher at Weston High School in 1976. The business department was just developing at that time and was limited to shorthand, typing and a few computer classes. I remember him very fondly as an engaging, dedicated teacher. I won a business award at graduation and was so thrilled to accept this honor from Mr. Mammos. I wish I had known he had lived in Westford, as that is the town I lived in for 27 years while raising my children.

  4. Janice and Rick Black says:

    The Gentle Giant! A foodie, a musician, a storyteller.Our times with our dinner group, Rincon and how that name came to be, will
    always bring a smile. Will miss sharing recipes and Tom’s piano playing and just his presence in the room. Thanks for the memories.

    Our deepest sympathy to Mary and the entire family. What a treasure he was – and will be so well remembered for the wonderful times we’ve had together- laughing, eating, drinking wine and oh the beautiful piano playing – he made it sound so easy — always played from the heart. What a special person who shared his love of life with us! Thank you, Tom. Until we meet again….

  9. Phyllis LaVita Johnson says:

    Mary and family, Art and I send our condolences on Tom’s passing. He was a dear friend and we will cherish every memory of all the happy times we spent together. His sense of humor brought lots of laughter to our lives, his smile was contagious. He was a fantastic cook and always extending invitations to share a sumptuous meal at his table. Whether we were sharing a bottle of wine on the patio, traveling together, watching a football game or out on a field trip, a good time was had by all…..that was what it was like spending time with Tom & Mary. Tom will live on in our memories. May your family take comfort knowing he is free from pain, and may he rest in peace.

  10. Dan Britten says:

    Susan and I send our condolences to all of Tom’s family and we share in their sadness with his passing. The fact that he was loved by two wonderful women gives testimony to his kind and loving character. We recall with great fondness: our fishing trips in Maine with Tom, Matt, Jim, and the Britten family; swimming and playing horseshoes in Westford, but most of all we recall the many fabulous meals prepared in the Mamos house. Tom made the best fried clams ever. Our brother-in-law will be truly missed.

  11. Mike Moulton says:

    Jim, Kate and Family – I am so saddened to hear of the loss of your dad. He was a great guy and I always enjoyed speaking with him while growing up (basketball games/practices, etc.). Jeanne and I’s hearts are with you guys.

  12. Debbie Menninger (Mamos) says:

    I will always remember the gentle tone of Uncle Tom’s voice. My sincerest condolences during these difficult days.
