Billy here, distance always seemed to be an issue with keeping in touch with relatives.. but I had a couple nice conversations with my Uncle Tom in my life, when he visited from florida, or going on six wheeler rides. most recently a couple years ago at a party in Adrian, Pa.. Tom was showing everyone pictures of motorcycles and cars on his phone, at one point he had everyone laughing so hard they were throwing their heads back, he was telling a story about a high school buddy of his. I remember after the party was over, i helped him load water into his car, and told him 'Good seein' ya'.. and he said 'Oookay, see ya later Billy'.. it was a cool memory i wanted to share.

Tom was definitely one of a kind. My husband met him on the job in 1995-96. We had just relocated to Florida from Ohio and found out Tom was from Punxsutawney, PA. It was nice meeting someone from up North! I knew Candie for most of my life and we introduced her to Tom. Candie wanted a man who loved motorcycles and he was the perfect match. My favorite memory of Tom -we were at their house for a party and Tom showed me his "vintage" 8-track player! And he had to show me it still worked, so he popped in a tape of the Bay City Rollers - Saturday Night!! I will forever remember Tom each time I hear that song. RIP Tom! Love, Rick & Patti
