I used to give Tom some hard times while we attended Kersey Cowboy Church! Mr. Kirby, I used to call him. He was a wonderful Christian and human being!!! Edna, we love you and cherish all the great moments we had at church! I still have my basket made by you for my wedding! Tom is finally with his Savior and Lord!!! and some day we'll all be together again!

Tom was a classmate at Galeton school. Great guy and a fun guy. I am sad at his passing and my condolences to his family, especially to Tom's Mom Reba. The Siegrist families are well respected members of the Galeton community - Tom will be missed. I have very pleasant memories of Tom and enjoyed renewing our acquaintance at several reunions.

Tom and I grew up together as neighbors and best friends on farms S.E. of Galeton. We had so many wonderful experiences together in our youth. one experience I will never forget. We rode our bikes up to the Lohr's swimming hole on Eaton ditch. We were skinny dipping. Unbeknown to us, my Dad came by on way home from Eaton. He stopped and picked up our clothes. When we were ready to go home, we could not find our clothes so had to ride home buck naked on our bikes. When we got home, my Dad, Grady Jackson, met us at the front gate in hilarious laughter and with our clothes. We were horrified. Wayne M Jackson God Bless Family
