    Thomas E Diana was a co-worker, mentor and role model to me and my fellow Directors from the day we took the oath as Director. Tom always encouraged his fellow directors to serve MCU’s members and he would always carry membership forms to social affairs to recruit new members. Tom and his wife of 53 years Patricia were wonderful parents and grandparents to their family.
