Reflections for Special Agent Thomas Paul Marzilli

Hi Tom:

Another year has gone by. I tend to reflect on a lot of things on this day but mostly you and your family, and the whole Marzilli family. Finally had a nice service for Ma Ma last month. Some semblance of closure for all. Rest in peace. Love. Joe

I worked with Tom as I was a Marine CID Agent assigned as Special Agent doing a tour with NIS/NCIS at Camp Lejeune, N C. This was when I met Tom and we hit if off pretty quickly! Tom just had this kind of personality and was the true Professional as an agent! Tom and I played basketball for my 3 years at Lejeune. Both of us were extremely competitive which was always reflected in our games! A true Athlete! Tom was a from MA and I was from Jersey, two northern boys. Tom was Italian and me being from jersey eating like an Italian, we had much in common. He was someone I really respected and looked up to at NCIS! I always said to myself , it would not surprise me to see Tom as the Director one day! He was a true Family man which he loved is wife, kids and his family! I’m forever happy I had the chance and opportunity to meet, work, compete and socialize with one of the finest men I have ever known! I miss you Tom, RIP, Terry Hardy

I once said to Mr Marzilli I could never be a man like you or other men I have known in my life. He looked at me and said I think you are Griff. Impossible I know but whatever reason he said those words to me I will remember and respect Mr T P Marzilli forever even though it wasn't possibly true that I could ever be a man that he was.

Happy Birthday! I was out with old friends from Worcester this past Saturday and had fond and memorable discussion about the good old days on the east side, Harrington Way, the corner and Dan Solo's. I assume your ears were ringing, but it was all good. My friends remember you for all the great qualities you had as a human being.

Love Joe

Tom and I coached youth baseball together for several years when his sons were 10-12 years old. We often talked about baseball but what I remember most was finding out through another coach that Tom was a former college and Minor League ball player. That was two years after we started coaching together. What a great guy he was. In that scenario I figure most would have disclosed that fact in the first few minutes. I miss the conversations and I think of him often.

tom is very special to me... he is one of a kind in the NIS service. he came to my house even at late night taking some notes while having a cup of coffee. when he left PI, i was sad and try not to work with some of his replacements but then he came back for me to talk and urged me to help the agency. while he was at the USS Roosevelt, he always communicate with me sending some pictures of the ship. i am deeply touch by his heart that even now, i missed him and remembered him and will continue to help the agency he was working with. i am his ally, friend and civvy asset during his stint in the PI. Tom, may we see each other again in other time and place.... mabuhay ka... kaibigan

Tommy had the best hands I have ever seen in college baseball, bar none. One of the best athletes I have ever known. I honestly have never heard anyone say anything bad about him. Not one word. He was that well liked and respected.

Tommy was a special human being who led by the passion he had for the game. We played together for 3 years and we both enjoyed our best personal season at the same time. I was so happy for him as I know he was for me.

His big smile and the kind soul that he was will be remembered by those who were lucky enough to know him. Be it a teammate, fellow investigator or just a friend, he made time for everyone. R.I.P. my friend.

Rest In Peace

Lord I ask for courage, courage to face and conquer my own fears. Courage to take me to places others will not go. I ask for strenght. Strengh in body to protect others and strenght in spirit to lead others. I ask for dedication, dedication to do my job and do it well. Dedication to my community to keep it safe.
May the lord Jesus Christ help and guide the Marzilli family in this difficult time.

"The Badge"

He starts his shift each day
To respond to calls unknown.
He drives a marked patrol car.
A police officer he is known.

He's paid by the citizens' taxes
To make it safe on the streets.
But he usually has a second job
'Cause a waitress has his salary beat.

Now he doesn't know a holiday
'Cause he works all year round.
And when Thanksgiving and Christmas finally arrive
At his home he cannot be found.

He's cursed and assaulted often,
The one whos blood runs blue.
He seldom ever gets a thanks,
To some he's just a fool.

His friends are always other cops
'Cause people just don't understand
That underneath his badge and gun,
He's just another man.

He knows there might not be a tomorrow
In this world of drugs and crime.
And he gets so mad at the court system
'Cause the crooks don't get any time.

And each day when he leaves for work,
He prays to God above.
Please bring me home after my shift
So I can see the ones I love.

But tonight he stops a speeding car,
He's alone down this ole' highway.
It's just a little traffic infraction.
He does it everyday.

Well, he walks up to the driver's window,
And his badge is shining bright.
He asked the guy for a driver's license,
When a shot rang through the night.

Yes, the bullet hit its mark,
Striking the officer in the chest.
But the Department's budget didn't buy
Each officer a bullet-proof vest.

So he lay on the ground bleeding.
His blood wasn't blue - His blood was red.
And briefly he thought of his loved ones
'Cause in a moment the officer was dead.

In the news they told the story
Of how this officer had died.
And some who listened cared less,
But those who loved him cried.

Well, they buried him in uniform
With his badge pinned on his chest.
He even had his revolver,
He died doing his best.
