Tom will be missed by many of us here at Ridgewood. He was a big part of this community and did his best to make everyone happy. Will miss him as he always drove his truck around this neighborhood smiling and sometimes take a minute to stop and say hi and ask you how things were going. Sad day for this world when he left. Continued prayers for the family.

It really hurt to hear the news about Tom's passing. I've always enjoyed our time talking together. The worked he put into this community didn't go unnoticed. There was lots of love for him here at Ridgewood . I'll miss him driving around in his beautiful, black Ford F250. Whenever he would see me washing my car, he wound always say, "My truck is next". I wish I would've taken him up on that. To Bonnie, Tim, and his wife Carrie who I've had the pleasure of knowing, we will be thinking of you. Tom was a great guy.

Love, The Frasier Family

Whenever I pass by the Ridgewood Clubhouse, I will always remember Tom, coming and going, working to serve the residents and families who live in the Ridgewood Community.

As a matter of fact, as I walk by the office, I feel Tom's presence, standing by the work truck(s), exuding the professional and caring work ethic that he has shown for many years....

He will be missed and never forgotten.

May God bring you comfort.

I remember growing up just down the street from the Trombley family. Tom was so fun to be around. He was always a strong presence in the neighborhood. He was always there it seemed when you need him. Thank you for being a part of my life you will never be forgotten.
