Tommy’s life was defined by his smile and easygoing nature. He lit up any room he entered. He was a true and loyal friend to many. He was all-CCC as both a soccer player and golfer at Tolland High School where he won the 2015 Class M Championship soccer team with his best friends. He was active in the Tolland Soccer Club, both as a player and a TOPS soccer buddy. He loved working with kids at the Eagle Soccer School. At UConn, he was a proud member of the Chi Chi fraternity.
In addition to his parents, he is survived by his sister, Hannah Leahy of Somerville, MA; his grandmother, whom he adored, Rosemary "Gigi" Flaherty and too many uncles, aunts, and cousins to count.
