I send my sincerest condolences to Tom’s family. Tom and I were friends at Maple Crest Middle School and Kokomo High School. We played sports together growing up, and Tom was a good athlete.
I knew him to be trust-worthy, fun-loving, and well-respected by his peers! He will be missed!

Tom and I used to fish a lot together. Went to a couple of Pacers to. I will never forget the time a group of us from work went to Realfoot, Tennessee to fish for 3 days. Getting him and Gomez unstuck off a stump and about sanked my boat in the process. He was a lot of laughs and fun to be around.

Tommy and I got along right from the start! Boulevard, Maple Crest, Haworth, and Kokomo. Then life hit and we didn’t see each other for years. Every time we would, it was as if there was no time between. Tommy was one of my good friends because he was a genuine, gracious, enjoyable person to be around! Loved the time, a few summers back when we were able to play golf together often. You will be missed, my friend!
