One of our own has fallen ill.

Tom is a true salt of the earth guy. His love for lacrosse can only be surpassed by his love for his kids and grand kids. Anyone who knows Tom, will tell you he could talk lacrosse all day and all night. I can personally attest to that. He really is one of the old guard in the lacrosse world.

In a terrible turn of events, Tom has fallen extremely ill and is in critical condition after suffering multiple heart attacks while fighting pneumonia. Tom is currently admitted at St Francis hospital In Roslyn NY.

Financially he, nor his immediate family will be able to handle the expansive medical expenses ahead.

Anyone who knows Tom knows that he is a truly caring , passionate and generous man who has made positive lasting impressions along his way.

Any generosity in helping Tom’s cause is greatly appreciated.


Thank You

- The Brazel Family

Today was a very hard day. Saying good bye to a great guy. The stories being told about Tom today brought me to tears. Everyone had a Tom story. The photos of you playing the game you loved were amazing. To see you playing versus the young guys in those pictures was amazing. Your friends and family loved you very much and they will miss you. Long Island lacrosse lost a great one.
