MY DAY: Introducing actor Tom Aldredge

This morning, one of my favorite actors, John Herrera, posted a beautiful in-memoriam birthday tribute to his friend, Tom Aldredge.

I was not familiar with the name, and began researching Tom Aldredge.


Some of his credits include:

  • Norman Thayer in the original production, ON GOLDEN POND (Broadway)
  • Hugh de Angelis in THE SOPRANOS (Television)
  • Narrator/Mysterious Man in Sondheim’s INTO THE WOODS

What really caught my eye: born in Dayton, Ohio… attended The University of Dayton, prelaw… buried in David Cemetery, Kettering, Ohio.

So, this phenomenal gentleman of the stage and screen, and husband to Tony and Oscar winning costume designer Theoni V. Aldredge, was not only born in Dayton, but was buried a mile from my home.

I went to the cemetery, located his grave-site, and paid my respects.

Thank you, John Herrera, for introducing me to this fine gentleman.
