We were blessed to have a wonderful and loving uncle! Growing up I was always excited for Thanksgiving break because my parents and I would travel to Georgia to spend time with Tommy, Jane, and the rest of the family. I loved Tommy's food; he was the best cook around. Once Jordan came into the family, he knew he would become Tommy's friend the moment they met. They were always telling stories and bonded over their love of history, guns, and cooking. We will both cherish these memories. We love you Tommy!!!

I retired from Lowe's three years ago and Tom was one of my favorite people that I miss. Him and Jane were always so nice and sweet. Rest in peace my dear friend.

Tom and Jane,
Didn't see ya'll much but the love was there. Can't believe it's been 40 plus years since we first met! I'm reminded of fun visits and dinners together. Tom was one of my Bill's special friends. From the first hand shake Tom gave, he was your friend! When he gave you that little smile, his whole face lit up and you knew you had a new buddy! My heart is in prayer for the family and other loved ones who are mourning the loss of this beloved man! Love and prayers, Dianne Nelson Horsley

I was blessed to have the best brother of all time. He never thought it was uncool to take his little sister with him to hang out at Charco’s in his Corvair or indulge my love of everything Barkers. If I ever got in trouble he’d volunteer to “punish” me, carrying me through the house upside down, tossing me on the bed, swatting the bed to make it sound like he was giving me my spanking and telling me to cry only to have us end up laughing so hard that we’d both wind up in trouble. Much to our Mom’s dismay, he shared the same sense of humor as our Dad and something was always going on to keep her shaking her head at us or worse like her yelling hysterically for him to stop holding his sister over the rim of the Grand Canyon. Amazingly I made it thru my childhood despite Tommy’s efforts! I will miss his stories which only grew larger with each retelling. He has always been there for me and the world won’t be the same without him in it. I love you Tommy!!!!

Jane and family - so sorry to hear of Tom's passing. He was truly "one of a kind" and I will never forget hearing about all the Atlantic Steel antics. Love and prayers to you and your family.

Tom was a kind and thoughtful man. I worked with him during my tenure at Atlantic Steel in Cartersville. For a time he was the crew foreman on my Father's crew in the 12" rolling mill. I know he will be missed by all who knew him. May God grant peace to his family and friends knowing heaven received him with open arms...RIP Tom.
