Tom and l were good friends when we lived in Albuquerque, New Mexico in the 1980's. He loved to tease me when my Green Bay Packers didnt have a winning season, and likewise, l was happy to razz him about the Cleveland Browns. We actually we went the Albuquerque Airport to greet the Browns when they came to practice for a play off game with the Broncos. He was so happy back then! Always full of life! He sure did love to laugh and loved rock music back then too, especially Bon Jovi. So glad he stayed with us for a visit in New Mexico a couple of years ago. We made good memories again and he was a good man who loved his country deeply. I will see you my friend again. Love you, Tom.

Tom I wii never forget your enthusiasm and your dedication to your dogs. May you Rest In Peace my friend.

Love never dies. I remember so many things about you. You were always so cool in my eyes. Your pride in the uniform that you chose to wear was inspiring. My love to your family.

Tommy, we became best friends in first grade at Beall Avenue, and that closeness lasted through High School. Rest well my dear friend. All my best to your family.

My sincere condolences to the whole family. Tom was a great man, who served his country and carried for his fellow Veterans.

Much love and prayers, Harriet

My condolences to Tom's family and friends. Tom was a teammate of mine many years ago on a very good softball team. We were also friends on Facebook. I will miss him, and his humor. Tom always had an opinion, on anything from sports to politics. Our prayers go out to the family. R I P Brother.

Bonnie, as you may recall, I worked with your late husband Bud for several years at the Smith Grocery. At that time I had not realized that your brother was Tom and of course Ted and Tim. I knew all your brothers. They and you are of a fine family. I'm so sorry for your loss. God bless you, your brothers and Bud.

My deepest sympathies to all in the family. I am so happy that I was able to reconnect with Tom after we lost contact for 30+ years. I can still hear the surprise in his voice when I was able to call him and juggle his memory that we were former neighbors in my neighborhood. I considered Tom a good friend despite the age difference, have always looked up to Tom. Thank your for your service, and thank you for being so thoughtful when you gave me some small items to remember you by...always thinking of others. Peace be with you my good friend.

I’ll never forget when Tom came to stay with us. As a little kid, he taught me how to eat chicken wings and introduced me to ZZ Top which he claimed was one of his favorite bands. We would listen to Sharp Dressed Man, La Grange and Gimme All Your Lovin! Tom was a Patriot and will be missed by many! Rest in peace Tom!

Sympathies to the family and prayers. Tom was like a big brother to me after my brother died. He was so sweet and easy to talk to . My thoughts and prayers go out to the family. God Bless.

I am so sorry for.yourloss. I hope Tom will finally be at peace. He suffered for along time.
Take care,


Bonnie,I am so sorry for your loss. I got to meet Tom and Tim as adults and they both were fine men. I remember "baby sitting" for both and I'm quite sure that scared them for life. My prayers go out to you and your family. old old friend,

Tommy, many great memories of us at Beall Ave and the Summers. We taught each other how to play sports and had great fun doing it. Whether it was basketball, baseball, or even football, it seems we did one of them almost everyday year long. Thank you for being a great friend!

Thankyou coach Huxley and coach Tucker for giving us kids your time coaching the Beall Ave. Bears flag football team.

You were not only a great High School friend but we had many wonderful chats on Facebook. Some happy others tearful, but you knew how to put a smile on my face. Thank you for your service to our country.

So sorry to hear of Toms passing. We worked together at ODJFS in Greenville, OH. Tom and I have never lost touch and would talk frequently. We talked thru this whole ordeal and it is heart breaking.
