Condolence From: Mark
Condolence: A hard working man, and a good example of what it means to be a good man, and a good neighbor. It is 38 years since I left Ferney St. In the woof and weave of my memories will always live Mr. Claus, with his engaging humor, and practical knowledge, which he shared generously with me. I’m very appreciative of his example of a life lived through hard work, faith, and overcoming life’s obstacles. He has left behind fond memories.

With sympathy, and warmest regards,

Mark E. Cacamis

Condolence From: Anne
Condolence: I'll always remember Tom's humor and his gentle manner. He doted on my son when we visited CA, walking him in the yard and over the bridge and buying him a railroad cap for the visit to the train yard. I'm comforted by the fact he is back with his beloved Irene and that he and my mom Judy can sit around and laugh together again.

Condolence From: George Ferguson
Condolence: I have so many wonderful memories of Tom that I will always carry with me. I will miss him calling me "meat head" after his favorite show, All in the Family.

He and I spent a lot of weekends working on the house putting in a 40 foot wood bridge, brick patio, landscaping, etc. I never knew he did not like me "speed" driving until one weekend, coming back with a load of bricks, as I neared the freeway exit Tom calmly looked over at me and said "George, lower the flaps" as if I were flying a jet.

He had a wonderful sense of humor and was always making fun of Cindy and I. Try as I might, I could never equal his sense of humor.

I was never able to discuss my work with him until the last few years. My previous jobs he did not understand, but my working with Utility companies, now that he knew. We would discuss my various jobs. I finally felt like I had made my "father" proud. Yes, I thought of him as a father and always will.

We will miss you but never forget all the wonderful times.

Rest in Peace!

Love you, George

Condolence: Cindy and George I'm so sorry, we will all miss Uncle Tom
Alway the comedian, I will miss his wit.
Tom was dedicated to his family, his religion,his friends, his job and his trains. Right now they have a full table in heaven, as they did in the house in New Hyde Park. And Grandpa is there getting ready to say "Let's make a break Ag."

Condolence: What can I say about my Uncle Tom... everyone loved him. Whenever Aunt Irene and Uncle Tom visited during our childhood you knew it would always be a fun time. I remember one time when I was very little he took me to ride a horse. Not old enough to ride the horse myself he walked along with me. This is such a special memory. I remember his visit to New York after Aunt Irene died... he cried because he missed her so much. He was such a loving man. I am sure all of the Claus' are once again sitting at the table with Grandma and Grandpa like we did so many Sundays.
Uncle Tom may you rest in peace... love you and miss you!!!

Condolence: Dear Tom’s Family
I am sorry to learn of Tom’s passing. My deepest condolences to all of you. He was a special person and I feel very lucky to have met him. Thank you for sharing him with me. I enjoyed hearing about his train adventures. Hey! He still owes me a private ride in the train. I will remind him of this, when I see him in heaven!
With lots of love

Condolence: Dear Cindy & George,
I'm so sorry your loss... I do unfortunately know the pain that comes from loosing a Dad.
I enjoyed reading your memorial, it was a beautiful tribute.
Uncle Tom was also my Godfather who I loved dearly. He and Aunt Irene always brought laughter to any room. Years ago, they would come over to Mom & Dad's house every Wednesday and Mickey our beautician would do the ladies hair. Uncle Tom called her the "Miracle worker". It was always a fun night.
I miss your Mom and will miss your Dad, they were truly amazing family.
You are in the thoughts and prayers, God bless... Love you 💔

Condolence From: Carol Claus
Condolence: Dear Cindy and George, I will miss my Uncle Tom, perhaps the funniest prankster of all the Claus brothers. Always joking, even with the children, he was kind and loving and will be greatly missed. I’m very happy we got to see him during our visit to California. We shared stories and jokes, of course, and it was like old times when we visited more often. As a child when we visited Uncle Tom and Aunt Irene I could always count on spending time in the basement playing with cousin Cindy’s Chatty Cathy doll while we were there. When I was first married and bought a house, they gave us their old basement couch to start out with. They were both very generous and brought much love and laughter wherever they went. I will miss them both. My deepest condolences.
Love, Carol
