The Maselli family held Tommy in high regard and we were all sorry to hear of his passing. My mother JoAnn, brother Tom and sisters Nanette, Carol and Patty and myself all appreciated everything Tommy did over the years for our father Reno as they enjoyed many years of music and friendship as the Alladins. My Father always said that Tommy was like a brother to him and he was so helpful and kind to Dad when he gradually lost his vision. They enjoyed playing music together and each other’s company for so many years. There’s a special place in heaven for Tommy and now the Alladins are all together again. We’re sorry we were not able to be at the services as we are all out of the area and our mother JoAnn is not able to travel easily but we send our sincere condolences to the family.

Dear Gail and Family,

I was so saddened to read about Tommy; and his brother just a few days ago. I will never forget my accordion lessons from Mr Leonesio when I was just a young girl. He was always so kind and patient with me. My parents both always spoke so highly of your Dad. When my mother and father ended up at Wmst Commons after their accident, I ran into Tommy and we had the best conversation. He remembered me! After that, I saw him regularly as he came to see his sister, Elsie just about every day. We talked each time I ran into him and he was always so concerned about my parents. Just the other day I told my husband how I have missed seeing him now that Elsie has passed. Well, I guess there is nothing to argue about a man who lived in the health he was until 98! Tommy was a gentleman through and through and a GIVER. He and his music gave so much to the residents at the nursing home. He certainly had a life well lived. I'm sorry for you, Gail, and your whole family. I know he will be greatly missed. I extend my heartfelt sympathy to you all at this very sad time. May you rest in peace, Mr Leonesio. I still remember the songs you taught me how to play some 60 years ago!
