Tommy and I met at Church when we were in elementary school. I'm proud to say we were friends for many, many years. Tommy was a faithful Gopher and made sure the class of 1959 was forever getting together for reunions. I think he worked on every reunion committee. Tommy had a struggle all his life with his physical problems but never let it get him down. He will be missed by all who knew him.

GPHS and the Class of 1959 in particular have lost one of their biggest advocates with the death of Tommy. Keeping everyone in touch was very important to him and he worked for many years to make that happen. The strength he showed was an encouragement to us all and all of us will miss him.

My husband Johnny went to GPHS with Tommy and got to know him better as the years and reunions went by. What I remember about Tommy was his wonderful giving spirit and willingness to keep classmates in touch with each other. He had a kind and generous heart, and I know each of us will miss him. Prayers to Tommy’s family ... Heaven has one more shining star🌈

Tommy and I went to GPHS together but I got closer to him after graduation.
Tommy really had a heart for his classmates and worked tirelessly to communicate with us.
He promoted the reunions and kept contact information for all of us.
I'll miss hearing from him.
I hope his passing was peaceful.
He couldn't help but be loved by those close to him.
God bless his soul.
