Eleanor, my deepest sympathy in your loss Both Tommy and you were wonderful neighbors and friends during our years next door on Marble Lane.
I will always remember Tommy helping me with any problems I encountered with the house or car. And, special memores for the times he played the violin "fiddle as he callled it" the German/Evis song "Wooden Heart" for Eleanore, especially in coming to the hospital and playing for her. The swimming party at your house and a ride with him on the Harley are unforgettables. A great guy will be sorely missed but remembered forever. Rush Lantz

Ruth and Hunsey would always brag that Tommy could play a guitar better than Chet Atkins...they were so right! He was also pretty hot on that five string electric fiddle.And he never had to read music.He truly had a God given talent.When we were kids ,we would get so excited when I father told us that Tommy was coming over and he was bringing his guitar.As we grew older ,we were so lucky to be entertained by Tommy and his friends.He was just so nice to be around , so special, our favorite cousin.Thank you Tommy.Peace and love, Bonnie Jo

You couldn't have asked for a better neighbor than Tommy. He welcomed us when we moved in, and was always there if we needed something. He will be greatly missed.
