Tommy was a fine young who lived next to us growing up. He would help with the horses and putting up hay. I lost touch after the family moving to Florida then we became face book friends recently. I am so pleased that he did so well. RIP
Friend Tommy!

I wish I could express the extent of sorrow for your loss that is weighing heavy in my heart. I will not be able to attend but my prayers will be with you.
.
The few times I spent talking with Tommy, he always expressed a true appreciation for his wife putting up with him and all his problems (his words) and I responded, Tommy if she didn't love and care about you, she has the choice to leave,,,,you never left and you never stopped caring for him. I know he wanted to be able to take care and have fun with you. The cards you were dealt did not have that for the ending. Take the good memories and carry them always.

Brenda you were an amazing wife and all I've ever heard was that Tommy was an amazing man, friend and companion.

love (your sister), Brenda Griffis

Tommy helped me so much over the years when he worked at Big Chief and as a Reserve Officer. A true gentleman always with a smile and an absolutely loyal friend. I was shocked and saddened to hear of your passing. I am sorry I cannot make the service but I can say thank you so very much for being you. There is a special place waiting for you my friend. RIP my brother, you have earned the rest. God bless you and the family.

Tommy,
You are still my best friend, and I will cherish our bond for the rest of my life. You were always there for anyone who needed your help, and especially all of us that served the public as police
officers. I will have a void in my heart, until we meet again. I hope you can rest in peace, and
finally get the relief from the physical pain in your life. Love ya Buddy, and I will never forget
you. Thanks for all of the great memories and your loyalty..……..Gene

Big Chief Tire was in front of Red Lobster where I used to work in Arlington back in 1997sh. Tommy was my go to person to fix my car. He loves those Red Lobster biscuits; the smile on his face every time I brought him biscuits was priceless. He had always say, "your my sweetheart". Just because I brought him Red Lobster biscuits.

He was a great father in law to Lailane, and a great grandpa to Mia Pendergrass.

My entire family-
Brian, Allan, Ricky, Piper, Logan, Landon, Alicia will miss you.
Rest in peace Tommy!

With Love

Several years ago Tommy called and asked if he could borrow my truck and I told him of course. He came by with some story about why he couldn’t use his and I thought nothing of it. Several hours later he returned my truck with new tires on it. He had noticed my tires were in bad condition so he made up a story to use it so he could get tires on it. That was Tommy! You will be missed my friend.
Rest In Peace.
