I saw, not too long ago that we are classmates 1956 thru 1959. We had great years knowing each other since he lived down the street from me on Wilson Ave. We had many fun days at the school of St. Joe. Tom also helped me with english since my first language was german. I spent time with Tom in the National Gurard (107 Armor Calv.) then. Tom was funny and full of life. Sorry, I eventually lost track of Tom and Fremont since we moved to Fl. 22 years ago.
Our heart felt sympathy goes out to Tom and his family.
TOM, MAY YOU REST IN PEACE ....... much love .........
