Tom was a good friend and I will miss our times together. As much as I will miss or frequent phone conversations, I know he is no longer waning in his comfort state. Rest in peace my friend.

Sad to hear. I remember his stock car racing days when we were kids, with Scotty, Kathy and Kelly. Good memories of deer hunting at the old camp too.

Tom was a boyhood neighbor of mine and a Senior hockey team mate. Many great memories. Tom also painted my Avanti in 1977 and we would marvel at the condition that the paint was in everytime we got together. Paint still looks good. Tom was a very talented individual.. Will miss him.
