I was very saddened to hear of the loss of my friend Tom . He was a kind person that was liked by all who knew him. I knew him and his brother very well as I was growing up. We were reunited years after I left in the military and returned from Korea and was assigned to randolph AFB. We were assigned to the same unit were we became good friends again. A kind man with a heart of gold. He will be missed.
My condolences to the entire family.

Tom and Estella have been long time friends to our Family and our parents... Tom was such a great Husband, Dad, Friend and a genuinely Good Man. He always had a kind word and asked about Andres or ”Doc” as Marines refer to Navy Corpsmen assigned to their units... I think he was equally as proud of “Doc” as we are... That’s just the type of man he was... We will always remember hearing him sing and play guitar in church... Our memories are many but though it’s just a memory some memories last forever... Tom your memory will live forever in the hearts of all those you have touched... God Bless Estella and entire Partida Family Always...

I was so blessed to know Thomas when I worked at Smithson Valley Middle School. He was such a kind man. It was my first year back to teaching & I was assigned to a broken down old portable. Thomas & I worked together to transform it into a beautiful classroom. His friendship is a cherished memory. My deepest sympathy to each of you. He was an honorable man.

Our condolences to Estella and family. May God comfort you with his love, peace and strength during this difficult time.

Tom was a very good friend of my mom and dad. I had the honor to spend about a month with him on a temporary duty assignment in Denver Colorado. I still remember how much fun we had sightseeing. He was such a wonderful person to be around. A true gentleman with integrity, love for his family and friends and most of all God.
I’m sure he is already playing his guitar for God in heaven.

Rest In Peace.
