Remembering Tom as great husband
and father and a caring person
who made others feel his concern for them.
Having worked at UD with Janet for many years, I always admired their marriage and their devotion to each other and their children.

Jim and I express our sympathy to the DeBanto family on the death of Tom. He was a gentle, kind man who was an inspiration to all of us. He was a great neighbor and tolerate of the antics of the Niekamp boys next door. We all admired this dear man. May he Rest In Peace.
