Thomas George Pisano was born December 7, 1961, and died December 6, 2022. Tom was born in New Rochelle, New York and moved to New Jersey as an infant. Tom graduated from Green Brook High School in Green Brook, New Jersey. He was a graduate of Centre College in Danville, Kentucky with a degree in Economics and Spanish. While in Kentucky he even became a breeder for a thoroughbred that raced in the Kentucky Derby and came in third at the Preakness.
After college, Tom’s love of travel flourished. He visited every continent except Antarctica and created great memories. His love of travel shaped his career which started with a new startup airline called People Express which led to a nearly 40-year career in the travel industry.
Tom’s other great love was music. He loved the New York City music scene and was always discovering great new bands before they hit the big time. He merged his love of music and travel by becoming the travel agent for dozens of bands for their concert tours in the United States and around the world.
He was a loving son, devoted brother, doting uncle, caring cousin, and compassionate friend. His dry, quick wit and huge heart made him loved by many.
He is survived by his brothers Chuck (Rhonda) and Paul (Jane) and his nieces Alexandra (Andrew) and Nancy and nephews Chad and Jake as well as many cousins and friends. He is predeceased by his mother Patricia, father Charles, and sister Nancy.
