The overwhelming memory I have of Tom is building , working on a car, or grilling steaks at the lake. Loved a good joke, the companionship of his many friends, and yes, his family. Married Sue Handley soon after being introduced by my mother, Jane. Sue was the perfect match for Tom. He loved, respected and admired her all his life. They were a team. Continued dating all their married life. I'll always remember Tom and Sue every time I see the movie, "My Cousin Vinnie" or "Nine to Five".
Deepest sympathy, and love from the Carter and Laubach family.
