Thomas lived every moment to its fullest and always strived to make sure the people he cared about felt happy. We will always hold his memory in our hearts. His endless jokes, his passion in life, and most importantly we will carry on the fountain of kindness he had in his heart for everyone he knew.

The feeling that I got when Thomas walked into a room was a feeling I've never had before. The second I saw him I knew he was the person I wanted to spend my life with. He radiated confidence, security, ambition,and so much more. We shared some amazing years together filled with ups and downs.We had a real connection that always brought us back together, a raw love for each other that not many understood but that's okay because we knew .We were no where close to being a perfect couple, but Thomas never stoped trying to work on our family and getting himself closer to our kids (Landon and Lillian). The children lit up when daddy would come home. The kids looked forward to all time spent with him,we would go on family walks around our neighborhoods usually ending at the park where Thomas would teach Landon how to use his skateboard and then go down the slide with lilly endlessly .When TJ was passionate about anything whether it be working on a car, finishing work or spending time with family he put his all in. Thomas was a remarkable person ,and will forever love and live on in our hearts.
