Tom LaSorsa's Funeral Expenses


Tom LaSorsa, Sr. passed away April 16, 2016, at age 67. Tom proudly served in the US Army. Tom’s service to his country was not without sacrifice.  He became 100% service connected to the VA.  His medical conditions were due to Agent Orange exposure; these include neuropathy, ischemic heart disease and diabetes.  In 2008, Tom was given a second chance at life with a gift of a kidney donated by his son David.  These medical conditions have had ongoing, large financial burdens on the family. 

Tom was famous for his penne vodka and crab cake recipes. He loved lobster and devoured the 9lb-er seen in the picture above.  He was an avid fan of the Philadelphia Eagles & Flyers. He was committed to these teams and never wavered despite their records.  Most of all, he was truly devoted to his family.   He and Jean Marie married in June 2000.  Their love was contagious.  Sadly, on Friday morning, Tom suffered a massive stroke. Immediately, family members from many states, ranging in ages from 6-77, quickly gathered at his bedside in the hospital.  This is a testament to the bond and love shared with his family.   Tom's family needs support for his funeral expenses.  We are humbly asking, if you are able, to support his family by giving any amount to this cause. Tom was loved by all and will be greatly missed.  His legacy will continue in the lives of his family and friends.  

Thank you, in advance, for your support.
