Howard Kay - 13 days ago

Tommy was one of the legends when I was first being introduced to the world of photography a few decades ago. First time I saw him was at some large dinner event. Back in those days there was often a long chunk of downtime while everyone ate. There he was sitting in a distant corner all by himself reading a hardcover book. That alone impressed me and would be my first clue that even though he may have been mainly known as a photographer, albeit one of the best ones, he was really a renaissance man with a wide range of interests. You could talk to him about anything and he would offer to help you out with anything. Many respected him as a photographer but I thought of him more as a true mensch. My condolences to all of his loved ones.

Dearest Magda, Ruthie, Ronnie, Faye and family. I cannot express how emotional I am to hear of beloved “Tomchu”’s passing. Every memory of my childhood and young adulthood is tied to memories of Tommy , Magda and your family. From trips to “George Lake”, to New Year’s parties in the basement… to our childhood photos growing up and then all our wedding photos from “Freiman’s Photo Studio” Tommy was always part of our lives. Tommy was such a wonderful and good person and best friend to my dad… maybe Tommy, Laci and Yankel are playing Gin Rummy today… may all your cherished memories bring you comfort during this sad time in your lives. Love Audrey, Jerry and family

Bruce Spector - 14 days ago

As a member of the 'Talk Of The Town Orchestra' , we would cross paths with Tomi at various weddings during the 70's-80's.

His photographs were beautiful! Please accept my sincere condolences.
