Thom was always fun during our Florida happy hours…never at a loss for a story or a good laugh. He never let his health issues slow him down — he just quietly chose to keep doing what he loved best. What a nice lesson for anyone! He will be missed.

To the family...

So sorry of Thom's passing. There were so many good times in our young Insurance agent days. We had some unique and fun times. You may not remember me but I was one of the young agents long with Bill Menzie and Brad Brown and others .
Ironically I talked to your Dad just about three months ago when I think he was in fl.
Sorry for your loss.
Ps
We spent a week many years ago when he and I went to Pensacola to clean up my house from hurricane damage and we toured the Navel air station where he was stationed. He loved I'd it.

Always welcoming, never without a kind word, this gentle soul will be truly missed. I don't think he ever said a discouraging word.

Thom was not only my brother-in-law , but a true friend. We met in 1963 when I was dating his older brother, Dan. We triple dated often with Thom, his girl friend, Kathy, my sister and her beau. Over the years we stayed in touch and visited back and forth between Ohio, Tucson, Santa Fe and Mexico. Our last visit was wonderful, a luncheon with Linda, Amanda, Abie and their families . He was a joy to know.

So sad to hear of Thom’s passing. We always had a big interest in Optimist, and Rotary Clubs. He was a great guy with a fun personality! He will be missed by many.
May the family find comfort in the many memories of him. RIP Dear Thom.
