Tommaso bravely traveled to this country, speaking no English, in search of work and a better life for his family. He raised his family like he cultivated his garden, with hard work, dedication, tenderness and love. After retirement from Pittsburgh Water Treatment Plant, he began his second career, joining his family in opening Tomasino’s Restaurant, near Russellton, where he worked into his late 80s. He was known for his warmth, wit and hospitality, always ready to share a laugh and glass of homemade vino with all. He loved music, humming tunes as he worked and singing along to his favorite Italian classics; this passion was passed along to his grandchildren.
