The Thomas J. Rapoza Textbook Collection Program
Tom began his career with Barnes & Noble in 1981 and worked at the Providence College Bookstore during his junior and senior years. After graduation, he served the company proudly for 22 years until his passing in 2005. Tom was an accounting major at Providence College, but will best be remembered by his family, friends and colleagues as a kind and gentle man with a deep belief in God, with great love for his wife and daughter, with a great sense of humor and a love of all things Red Sox! His time at Providence College was marked by academic achievement and spirited camaraderie with his friends and Raymond Hall roommates.
