Sorry for your loss , my condolences to the family. There is hope because our Jehovah promised mankind that he will wipe out the resurrection from our eyes according to the scripture found at revelation 21:4 which Jehovah says he will wipe out the tears from our eyes and death will be no strength nor sickness will be any more. Again I am sorry for your loss.

Many years ago I played basket with Thomas at Big park Forsth park. We won but had to flee because the other guys were upset. He know he is in Heaven right now. I hope to see him again. My prayers go out to the family at this time.

Dear Pam, Marcus, Lara, Thomas, Bernadine, Angela, and Ann. Please accept our deepest sympathy on the loss of Thomas. We remember him visiting his Aunt Sara's and what a rascal he was! We also remember him growing to become a wonderful man, husband, and father. He was a true credit to the legacy of the Martino family name and a most beloved cousin to us. He will be sorely missed by all. May God keep you at this time and know that we are thinking of you constantly. With Deep Love and Sympathy, Marianne and Bernard

Knowing Tom since junior high at The Academy, I have a lot of fond memories of him. I remember our junior year of high school, my grandmother and his mother thought we would get married and unite two longtime Tampa Italian families! He was so funny, smart, and adorable. He had a great group of friends at Jesuit and on Davis Island and was a good family man. Sending my love to Pam , his children, and his sisters.Tom will be missed by all of us. ?Kim Valenti Grandoff

My dear cousins, While we can't get away to be with you in Savannah, please know our hearts, thoughts and prayers will be. Thomas was in every special Martino family gathering I can remember...growing up eating pasta at Nana's on Sundays and making"mud pies" with Rosanne for the family for dessert, (basically ruining Nana's Tupperware) and when he realized that the 3 of us would always be the youngest..and therefore always seated at the end of that long long dinner table that ended up in the living room, Dancing with him at weddings and the talks and jokes we'd share at parties. To know him was to love him, and we did. And we love you all so much. Our hearts and continued prayers are with you. Love Pattie, Tim and Lucas

My condolences to the family. Thomas was JHS classmate, golfing buddy (the JHS Hartnett Golf Outing will never be the same without him in our 4-some) and a true friend. I'll cherish our last round of golf on 12/30/18 @ PCCC with Al and Myron and his comment to me with a big smile "that was the best day of golf, let's do it again." Thomas - you will be missed by so many. Rest, now and Peace Be With You!

Thomas Salvador Martino was born to Angelo and Josephine Martino in Tampa, FL on January 12, 1959. Thomas grew up on Davis Island where he raised his family and remained an active part of the island community all his life. In his youth, he was an excellent athlete and could master any sport including baseball, basketball, ping pong, pool and foosball. He shared his passion for rock music with his family and friends by teaching himself to play the drums and guitar at a young age. He attended Boys Academy followed by Jesuit High School where he graduated in the top 10 of his Senior Class. He began his collegiate studies at Georgetown University in Washington D.C. and completed his undergraduate degree at University of South Florida. Following his studies at USF, he received a Juris Doctorate degree at the University of Florida College of Law.

During the start of his law career, he clerked for the Honorable Richard H. Frank for the Florida Second District Court of Appeals for the State of Florida. He had the benefit of being trained in real estate law by his Father, Attorney Angelo C. Martino which launched his very successful career as a well respected real estate attorney in Tampa, FL. After his father passed away he carried on his law practice with his sister and friend as partners and later started his own practice and ventures. He was a parishioner of Sacred Heart Catholic Church where he was baptized and confirmed in the faith and was a longtime member of various organizations including, Tampa Yacht Club, Palma Ceia Golf and Country Club, Sigma Alpha Epsilon Fraternity, and the Italian Club where he participated in supporting the beautification of the Italian Cemetery.

He was a devoted husband and father, loving son and brother, humourous brother in-law and friend, fearless entrepreneur and advisor to many, competitive poker player and fisherman, talented musician and creative writer, remained faithful throughout his life, and loved by so many.
