I worked with Tom for 14 years at Wachovia Securities. He was an amazing boss but also close to being like a second father to me. He taught me so much about the securities business. He was funny, always joking around and kept us laughing thru rough days at work. Everyone who worked with Tom admired and respected him greatly. I will never forget the impact this man had on my life and career. Praying for his family to have peace during this sad time.

I worked with Tom for a number of years at Wachovia Bank. Tom was a wonderful colleague, manager and role model for the Brokerage Operations team. On a personal level, I saw Tom periodically around town following his retirement and enjoyed his stories of family and retirement activities.

Wishing peace to Tom's entire family during this difficult time.
