Thomas Saia, of Mt. Vernon, NY passed away on Saturday, March 28th 2020. He was 73.

Tom worked his entire career in the trucking and transportation industry to provide a good life for his family. He leaves behind numerous co-workers and customers that he turned into life long friends.
Tom will be remembered by his family and friends as someone that could always be counted on. He was a dear friend and would always go above and beyond to help those in need. Tom was young at heart and would light up the room whenever he was around with his comedy and playful spirit. Tom always looked forward to good weather in order to get together with his golfing buddies at least once a week. He was an avid fan of the New York Mets & Islanders and if you were lucky enough to watch a game with him, the time spent with him was always more memorable than the game itself.
