I had the great pleasure of working with Tom at Channel 13 in the early '70s and also some when he was at Carraway and I worked for the city of Birmingham. He was a consumate gentleman and professional who always had a kind word for everyone with whom he came in contact. He had a wonderful deep voice that made him the envy of all of us who worked him during his broadcasting years.
My sincere condolences to his family at this time of loss.
