I'm so sorry to hear of Tom's death. Age 72 sounds a lot younger than it once did. I hope you find comfort in seeing his character and personality traits living on in his descendants.

Betty and family, we are very sorry for your loss. There are no words, only thoughts for all of you. We have many fond memories from our time with Tom as we worked with him during each Stampede celebration. I (Paul) was always so grateful for Tom as he was my Trail Boss for the parades and decorations. Joyce has great memories of Tom for his support and encouragement as they worked together in the Wrangler organization. Tom will be missed and remembered.

Betty, Bill and I are so sorry for your loss. I so enjoyed the years we spent on the HOA board. He was such a good guy and will be missed by all of you and your family, I'm sure.

I met Tom when we worked at Wards and was his barber and friend for many years after. He also helped me in his banking capacity. My condolences go to his family at this time of sorrow,

I was greatly saddened to hear about the untimely passing of Tom. Tom was one of the first Wranglers to welcome me to the organization 27 years ago. I can't remember for sure, but I believe he was the Wrangler president my first year as a Wrangler. I remember spending many a night sitting under the tent outside of the old Wrangler trailer drinking a cold beer or soda pop with Tom and other Wrangler friends after an extremely hot day working the rodeos, concerts, demo derbys, parades, etc. with Tom. What a great Wrangler and friend of mine. He will be sorely missed by the Wrangler organization because of the many contributions and huge time commitment he provided the organization year after year. It is unimaginable to think about the number of hours of his time and number of vacation days that Tom unselfishly gave of himself to the Greeley Independence Stampede and community at large. Tom was such a special person and friend to so many people who will always remember the great times and memories withTom . I know I will never forget the kindness that Tom showed to me that first year I was a Wrangler. Tom will be greatly missed by all!
