His father is mentioned during a cutscene with Earnest Kelly where Tommy says that his father used to run a printing company too and that he was going to follow in his footsteps. Is he still alive? I say no, since he does not run the Print Works and since he is not mentioned after that cutscene.

 

EDIT: I just realised the title of this topic is in very poor English, It is meant to say: Is Tommy's Father Still Alive In 1986?

You should have added maybe to your poll.

Tommy was around 36 when he came to ViceCity, he was actually brought up in Liberty City, so who knows his father could be alive.

He refers to his mother as well not very nicely but he does "Blame my mother i do !!"

Tommy grew up in Liberty and was only in Vice on business :p iirc he says something about following in his fathers footsteps but he "lived a different life". After joining the Forelli's and his stint in prison who knows? Given that Vice City was set in 1986 and Tommy is 35 then he'd be born around 1951 but alas we don't know how old his father is. Could've had Tommy young in his 20's which would make his dad 55 or so in Vice City, could've had him older at 30 or even 40 making him anywhere from 65-75 but that's all speculation.

 

Given Tommy's dads manual labor print works job and the fact Tommy joined the Forelli's and later got imprisoned I personally think his dad would have ceased all ties with him due to his criminal endeavors but that's just me.

Tommy said his old man USED to work on the print works. "Used to" is the key word here. From what I heard from that sentence and the fact that Tommy sees Earnest as a genuine father figure, Tommy's father is most likely dead during the events of Vice City. I mean if he was still alive, why would Tommy still see Earnest as a father figure despite the fact he still has a father on his own? In fact, here's a theory for me: Tommy's father's death is what prompted him to join the Forellis instead of following his footsteps.

It also could be the distance. Earnest Kelly is the closest thing to Tommy's father in VC, because his father could possibly be in LC. It's sustitution, really. If you go live somewhere off your house and get away from all your close people, you'll start finding people that look or act just like them, and start seeing them in the same way you saw the original person. So it's not just seeing Kelly as a father. This could also explain Tommy's asshole behavior with respect to Kent Paul, Lance, Mercedes, etc, or the submissive behavior he had with Diaz until he decided to wipe him out, or the way he acted with Ken Rosenberg and Avery Carrington, among many other examples. They just resemble someone from Liberty City and Tommy's making a subconscious connection, associating the new person with the behavior of the old person (so for example, with Diaz, after seeing his lunatic behavior, he could associate him with Sonny Forelli and lead to the belief that Diaz is not to be trusted).

 

Yet again, I'm not Tommy's shrift, so I'll never know if he is actually making all these associations :D It's likely, however

The game is very vague on his father's life, and father-son bonding; therefore more open to interpretation. I'd say, he's alive ( during the entire storyline ), and Tommy meets with his father after the events of the story.
