Tom Tom was an amazing Uncle. I loved his calm cool energy in any situation, going for a run, making a trip to Larry's for supplies, or sneaking up on you staying up way too late partying. Visiting Warwick and Uncle Tom, Aunt Sue, Tyler, Carly, and Kellen was always a highlight of my summers. I will always be an avid stick patrol participant, because of Uncle Tom. We will always have amazing memory's from graduation parties, birthday celebrations, baby showers, and weddings. Uncle Tom always had a smile on his face at each and every special event. We will miss him tremendously. He left us too soon, but I will never forget his wonderful spirit. We love you Uncle Tom always and forever!

Sue and family, I am so sorry to hear of Tom's passing. He was a remarkable man. Some of my best years in the flavor and fragrance industry always included Tom. When I could no longer have my golden retriever Max, Tom and the rest of you took him in. Through all the crazy Max stories I had to endure from Tom, I knew he was in the best home possible. You all will always be in my thought and prayers. Good Bless.
