Tom was a wonderful person and man of God. I have known and worked with Tom for almost 40 years. For the past 15 years, Tom was a great support to the efforts of our company with his professional approach to his work. Especially when we applied for and were granted a FEMA contract to build disaster relief homes after Katrina and Harvey. Tom designed a product that was universally accepted by everyone at FEMA in Washington, DC.
I still remember when I told Tom we were going to computerize the engineering department and do away with pencil and paper drawings. He came to me and told me he was too old for making a change like that and would have to resign. Over the next few months, Tom not only learned how to use Auto CAD, but mastered it not only for line drawings, but also all of his graphic illustrations.
I will miss Tom Jewell terribly, but draw comfort in that he is with Millie the love of his life!
