I got to know Tom back in the early '70s when we pulled tractors together. Always enjoyed seeing and talking to him. He will be missed.

Noelle, Jason & family,
We know how hard it is to lose someone, We will all get to see him again some day. Here's a note to Tom...
Old buddy we are sure going to miss you, We will never forget the memories on & off the pulling track. That summer that you let me pull Puff N Stuff is so special to me, I will never forget it. I thanked you before and i am thanking you again for that and all the help you gave us thru out the years. Your advice was always appreciated.
God speed my friend.

He will be dearly missed ,He was a coworker that I saw for over 20 years. Such a great friend and enjoyed him going with me to tractor pulls for 11 years. People knew him everywhere we went ! He was like a legion at the pulls! He taught me so much about the sport and I dearly miss him already.

Memories of Tom sitting atop his big, powerful tractor skillfully throttling it up with black smoke spewing out the stack to barrel down the Butler County Fairgrounds runway in front of the bleachers with all of us screaming & clapping for him to win. And he usually did win.
Our bodies wear out & no mechanic on earth can fix us. Then it is time for us to rest & move on toward our eternal place to be with God.
My heart felt condolences to Noelle, Jason, & all of Tom’s family & friends at this sad time of Tom’s passing.
Keep him close with all those wonderful memories in your heart.

My grandmother was Florence (Foley) Flaig. My mom was Pat. I fondly remember making trips to the farm as a youngster and a family reunion at Joyce park. My deepest sympathy to all the families.

We always enjoyed the times we had together when visiting the farm and the meals Aunt Helen shared with one and all. Our prayers are with the family.
