I haven't spent time with Tom lately. I met him about 30 years ago or so when his daughter Tanya and I became fast friends.
He was always welcoming, interesting and talkative.
I loved his sense of humor and his mischievous smile.
My favorite memories of him are watching TV with him and Tanya back in the day. Tom was more entertaining than the show as I had never met anyone before that could give such opinionated running commentaries on every show. So Funny! My favorite was watching a beauty pageant with him as he critiqued every contestant.
This man was a hoot!
I see his wonderful sense of humor passed down in his daughter, my dear friend.
I have known this family for many years and even though I haven't spent time with Tom recently, I will Always remember him fondly and count myself Lucky to have known him and remained close with his Dear Family.
