I had the privilege of working with Tom for several years at Emerson. He was one of the most kind and thoughtful people I’ve ever met. Had many a laugh but with Tom it was never at the expense of anyone other than him or myself. This world will be poorer without the likes of Tom. He can now rest peacefully at the side of our lord and savior. Goodbye my friend.

Tom and I were classmates and friends many years ago at Gettysburg Local School. We drifted apart after graduation and I had not heard from him since our school days. We had alot of memories at Gettysburg School. RIP Tom
