Our sympathy to you and yours. At the Johnson Class of 64 reunion, we were reminiscing about friends that moved elsewhere and Tom was brought up several times. He was loved in the small town & area surrounding. With happy thoughts of days gone by. Mary Michel

I'm very sorry for your loss. I have known Tom since about 94 when I started working with him at Metpath. Tom was a funny, hard-working man who got along with everyone.

Although I only had a few opportunities to work with Tom and only got to meet him once, he had a way of making you feel like you knew him forever. What a courageous fight he put forth. He always talked about his family and so appreciated the people he worked with. He was a blessing and will be so missed by so many. Praying for his family and all of those who grieve during this difficult time.

We have missed working with Tom so much and were so impressed with his spirit and humor these last few months. He was a wonderful person to work with - bright, witty and such a great team player. While we are saddened by his passing, we are so much richer for having known him. Peace and memories.
