Most knew Tommy as a coworker or a good friend.
I know him as dad . Dad was a very thick skinned hard working man on the out side.
But he did have a heart of gold inside. He had a short temper that was even shorter when alabama was on the field. But it was short only because he had alot of passion. A passion for wanting to see people succeed. A passion for beautiful things. And a passion for his family which went the world too him. He built me into the man I am today by the passion he put into everything else. I love you dad
