We were welcomed with a huge smile and warm wishes when we moved in next door to Tom and Barbara a few months ago. Only knowing him for a short time, it was no secret how kind his heart was. He was comforting and generous.. giving advice, helpful tips about the neighborhood/house, lending tools. It was easy to spend 45 minutes in our drive ways chatting about life, the weather, weekend plans to play pinochle. He was the perfect neighbor, and it was a pleasure to get to know Tom. Love to the family.

Our deepest sympathy to Barb, and family.
Dave knew Tom for over 50 years, and considered him
one of his most cherished and valued friends. They didn't see each other all that often, but did have some long valuable phone conversations throughout all these years. And remained life long friends. Tom was one of the good guys.
He will be greatly missed.
Prayers to the family.

Family is such a precious thing. Uncle Tom was such a caring man. He always kept in touch to make sure he knew what all the Leszczynski’s were up to and was always concerned when things were not as good as he would like. Even though we did not get to see each other much we got to keep up on each other’s goings on by phone. We will miss your phone calls, your warm hugs, your sincere concerns, and your sweet sweet smile. No one could ever replace you. Love You Forever.

We have so many great memories of serving together in church ministry, playing volleyball at gatherings, and chatting over coffee. We will see you again in Heaven one day.
