Tom was a dear friend of my brother Tom and nearby neighbor Tom and we called them the 3 T's. He was always so friendly and witty and I know he was a golf pro and teacher par excellence. His sister Bobbie told me if ever they had a trouble student or class they would send Tom to fix it. My two kids had Tom or Mr. Baugh for their teacher at Hebron and they really loved him. I would like to send my deepest condolences to his dear family and would like to say hang on to Jesus and we will see him again. Praise God!!
