Tom (and Anne) were neighbors on Filbert Dr. in Loveland. We arrived at about the same time and quickly became friends. We were guests in Tom and Ann's home many times for dinner and enjoyed music from Westwind Connection. We were able to attend several FMCA conventions with our motorhomes and enjoyed those trips very much. Tom and I enjoyed talking about our woodworking projects. I remember trying to net a large fish in Lake Maconahay Tom had caught but I lost it much to Tom's disappointment. Tom, you were a good and special friend. My wife and I miss your smile and laughter! Rest in Peace! Lee and Terry Steele Stay strong Anne!

I remember building my first model car with him. A '49 murcury. I remember eating health shakes at their house. I remember the coy fish pond. I remember there motor home and camping. I remember listening to him play amazing grace on the guitar. I remember so much. I always will. You may be gone for now, but I will always remember you grandpa tom.
