Saw Tom almost every day for a lot of years at Valley Electric and of course a lot of nights at Creole Lanes. He was a good man and friend. He’ll be missed RIP Tom.

The first friend I made in high school after moving to Vincennes, Indiana, from Cleveland, Ohio. Wow, where to start. I called him Oliver and what a great sense of humor, wackiness and friendship he added to my life. Though life took us along different paths, I thought about you often Oliver. Each time I watch the Mark Brothers, come up with a bad pun, see a reference to Roller Derby or Indianapolis Racers hockey, drink a Double Cola on New Year's Eve, and each morning when I wake up next to my dear wife, who I met because of Oliver. Thanks for it all my friend and I hope you are at peace now. I only wish I could have said goodbye. Good night and may God bless Tom "Oliver" Low
