Thomas Patrick Lewis passed away unexpectedly on Thursday, May 2, 2019, at the age of 42. The eighth of nine children, he was the son of Warren E. and Barbara (O’Garr) Lewis of Riverside, RI. A graduate of La Salle Academy in Providence, Tommy earned his Bachelor’s degree in finance from Salve Regina University in 2000 where he played football for the Seahawks.

Tommy will always be remembered for the twinkle in his eye, his winning smile and above all, his heart of gold. Loving uncle to eleven adoring nieces and nephews, he was their consummate fan, always at the rink or field cheering them on and praising them after, win or lose.
