I will remember Tom as a straight shooter who loved his profession and the land he worked. That he had the drive and knowhow to make a living farming in a time and place most others failed always impressed me. Tom Henry was bonafide.

Have fond memories of a good friend and classmate. The last couple of years were not easy for Tom and Kathy and we admire the way they handled their situation. You could not hold Tom down as he was determined to get back to farming. Now is the time to rest my friend.
