Tom was born in December 1954, the third child of Bunnie and Joe Catillaz. He attended St. Bernards, St. Pius, North Country Community College, and SUNY Geneseo. Tom was a member of the Lions Club, holding most all of the positions in the club. He is currently a member of the Village Board and has been for 18 years. Tom was also the past Mayor of Saranac Lake for 7 years. Tom has 3 children, Mallory, Thomas and Zachary, and lives with his spouse, Joann. He is employed at Hyde Fuel in Saranac Lake.

We look forward to a great winter carnival with Tom as our Grand Marshal!
