    Tom was always the life of the party and a best friend you could always count on. Tom’s influence lives on in everyone who was touched by him. We all have our own special way of remembering Tom, but for his childhood friends it will involve mischief, laughter, pranks and fun. From the classroom, to the weightroom, to the football field, to the school bus, to the lunch room and to the bar, from gym class, to the shooting range……Tom’s sense of humor filled the room and Tom was always proud to be Tom. Unapologetic in his demeanor with the biggest heart of anyone we knew. Tom was absolutely the best friend one could ever have because best friends like Tom are very few. Thanks for the years of laughter and fun bud . We love and miss you Tom.

    Bob and Cindy. It must be so difficult for parents to lose a child. May I offer my condolences to you and I will keep you in my prayers for strength and comfort at this time. I’m sorry I haven’t gotten to know Tom as he was a young lad when we moved in 1979. I’m sure you were the best parents that Tom could have wanted.
