Tom will be laid to rest at Ft. Logan National Cemetery. Depending upon Covid restrictions, at the time, we are hoping to have a precession from the church to the Cemetery where Tom will receive his military honors and be laid to rest in his final place. Afterwards the family will be hosting a reception and are working on the final logistics etc... (more information to follow)

Dearest Kathie,
Thanks for encouraging us to get married and standing up with us at our wedding at the little chapel in Vegas! We have such precious memories of our travels together and enjoying all the great meals! Tom loved good food and especially my poached eggs! It was Tom's infectious smile and laugh that will forever be with us. He was a great inspiration to all and a hard act to follow!
We love you, dear Kathie, and know that our prayers are always with you,
Phil and Martha Keller

Tom was the best man in our wedding -- Lee and Marian Woodward. Tom and Lee were best friends . They spent many hours together talking about the Lord and having wonderful fellowship together. Lee died in 2011 from cancer. After that Tom, kept in touch with me regularly to make sure that I was doing okay. He was like a brother to me. I will miss him greatly. I am so thankful that Tom and Kathy were our good friends. What a wonderful couple they were. I'm so sorry for your loss, Kathy, and I know your heart is broken, but know that God will take care of you.

This picture was taken in the fall of 2018 when Tom and I had an adventure in SanDiego and Tijuana Mexico to seek some alternative medical treatments. This was taken at the hotel in SanDiego on the beach. Had a great meal and a beer. Tom hadn’t been able to drink a beer in awhile because of his medical condition, but we chose to enjoy the moment! Well worth it! Good times! Love ya Bro!

Kathie...…
So sorry for you loss. It was an honor to know and work with Tom for so many years. Always had a laugh or two with Tom at the annual Duro-Last seminars. Tom was a class act and very well respected. He will be missed. Thoughts and prayers go out to you and your family during this difficult time.

Lots of good memories of Tom, a lot of them on the golf course. But the one memory that I will never forget is when his daughter Kristie (now my wife) first took me over to meet him. He wasn’t exactly cordial at first but I guess I grew on him because before I left there that night, he had told me a joke in which the punch line involved him grabbing my butt. I don’t remember the joke at all but I will always remember that part of the punch line.

I hold so many, many ,memories close to my heart of us all raising our kids together and sharing family celebrations, hilarious dinners and... our very sad losses. We can always count on each other when things get tough. Tom was always there with an encouraging word and helping however he could. He was truly a Faithful Warrior and was God's vessel of miracles to show us that nothing is beyond God's healing reach. Tom, you are missed and loved. Rest in the Light and Peace of God's arms. Kathie's sister, Julie and brother-in-law, Alan

To my soulmate

“Longer than there have been fishes in the ocean,
Higher than any bird ever flew
Longer than there’ve
been stars up in the heavens
I’ve been in love with you

Stronger than any mountain cathedral
Truer than any tree ever grew
Deeper than any forest primeval
I am in love with you

I’ll bring fire in the winter
You’ll send showers in the spring
We’ll fly through the falls and the summers
With love on our wings

Through the years as the fire starts to mellow
Burning lines in the book of our lives
Though the binding cracks and the pages start to yellow
I’ll be in love with you
I am in love with you! ‘


Here,There and Everywhere and if we are together I know I need never care! My heart is broken but I know I will see you again . Oh Mighty man of God Rest In Peace ! Your soulmate Kathie

In the early 70’s ,Tom and his 3 brother in laws and my Dad opened a small men’s clothing store. They incorporated it under the name “The FAAB Four”. Being,Finnerty,Albee,Allen and Bonham. (Notice the shirts... styling)!!Lol. Tom was the last of the four to pass. I am sure God has got his hands full with the 5 of them they always had so much fun together!
So I hope God gives them all a big hug for me because as you joined them Tom an era ended and a renewed eternity began for you! We miss them all but know we will see you all again!
With undying love,
The Finnerty’s, the Albee’s ,The Allen’s , and the Bonham’s
