I worked with Tom for many years at Harvester. We often went to lunch together at Hall's Restaurant, then on New Haven Avenue.

We shared a great interest in airplanes. He enjoyed his RCs so much.

It was especially enjoyable to visit with him at the IH Woodburn reunions. He just never seemed to change.

I will always remember Tom as one of the nicest and kindest individuals I ever knew.
