I was very sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. Tom was my leader, my booster, and one of my best friends ever. He helped me so much in my lifetime. He was a hero to me and he performed that to me, getting me jobs and guiding me in life. I worked with him as a young man and in later years. He made a great impression on me and I will always remember him. His family was always a part of me, through our relationship, and I extend my sympathy to them in their loss.

I wish to express my deepest sympathy to the family of Tom Piatt. I formerly worked at the Burger Chef on St. Clair for all the years Tom and his work gang stopped for coffee and breakfast. He was a great guy and we became good friends. I’m very sorry to hear of his passing. I kept track of him for many years through different people who used to be old customers of the restaurant but had not heard much of him recently. I thought alot of Tom and will remember him fondly. RIP Tommy Piatt

So sorry to hear about the loss of your father. I would often speak to him when he was still out and about in Calcutta. I was just recently in a house in Wellsville and the owner was telling us that Tom Piatt had put in their fireplace. I hope that the memory of his love gives you comfort and a peace within your heart.

To the Piatt Family: We are so sorry about the passing of your father, we are also saddened by his passing, he was like a father to Willy. He took us under his wing and took care of us when we needed it. He loved his family and was proud of each and every one. He would come and have dinner with us once in awhile and would update us on each child. He was very proud of his children. He had a big heart. God Bless you.
