|Thomas E Pedicini
Date of Birth: May 18, 1971
Thomas Pedicini was born on May 18, 1971, the youngest of four children to Albert and Nancy Pedicini and the only boy. He grew up in Hicksville, New York. His interests as a child included music and sports, in particular, the trombone and gymnastics. He pursued gymnastics in High School and went to the University of Pittsburgh with a gymnastic scholarship. Throughout college and in the years that followed, he taught himself how to play the guitar and began to play golf as a hobby as well.
He graduated in 1997 with a Bachelor of Science Degree in business. In May 1998, he accepted a position in the Institutional Equities Department of Cantor Fitzgerald. This past year, having just turned 30 years old, Tommy was finding his niche in the world, both professionally and personally. He spent time off on his golf game, relaxing with good friends and playing music on his guitar. He thoroughly enjoyed his two nieces and two nephews who absolutely adored Uncle Tommy and who would scream in delight when he entered the room.
One of our last memories of Tommy was on September 8, 2001. He was strumming the guitar and teaching his eleven-year-old cousin how to play. He never let the small things in life bother him and he always gave everyone the benefit of the doubt. He refused to believe or see the bad in anyone. We could all truly learn valuable lessons from him and his brief with us.
In honor of Tommy’s memory, The Pedicini family has established a college scholarship fund to award annual college tuition grants to local high school students, who most embody his special traits and gifts.
