A large crowd assembled in East Hampton at St. Luke’s Episcopal Church on Saturday, November 22, for the funeral of Hamptons stalwart Tom Twomey, who died November 16.
Among the many dignitaries in attendance were Bill and Hillary Clinton, and Secretary Clinton delivered a eulogy. Twomey is credited with helping Clinton win her Senate seat in 2000.
Dennis Fabiszak and Stuart Vorpahl were also among the speakers. New York State Assemblyman Fred Thiele, New York State Senator Kenneth LaValle, Southampton Town Supervisor Anna Throne-Holst and U.S. Representative Tim Bishop also attended.
John Shea, who was Twomey’s colleague at his law firm, Twomey, Latham, Shea, Kelley, Dubin & Quartararo LLP, served as master of ceremonies at the funeral, while Larry Cantwell was MC at the reception at East Hampton Point.
