Tom was like another brother to me. We had a lifelong friendship. He helped me out when my own brother was gone in Vietnam. I truly loved him as he was like another family member. Till we meet again my friend.

Bobbi, Jack & Ann,

Greg & I are so sorry for your loss!
I remember when we were young the great parties our parents always had.
I remember Tom as being a very friendly, quiet and caring person.
Unfortunately our lives all went different directions and we didn’t see each other as much as we would have liked.
Greg always enjoyed seeing Tom at Kroger. I’m glad he had the opportunity to know him too!
Our prayers are with all of you🙏
Karen & Greg Schafbuch

Tom and I met in our Junior year at New Haven when we both started our time at NHHS. He became a very good friend and we even double dated (me with someone else and him with someone I introduced him to) to go to Junior Prom. He was great friends with my now husband of 6 years, Steve Hoy, who visited him often both before and after his cancer diagnosis. They were close friends before Tom started at New Haven. We are all so happy he was in our lives as he was always positive and did everything with a sense of humor. Good bye dear friend. 🌹
