Our prayers are with the family. Tommy was my supervisor when I was first hired by Gulf Power. He was a joy to work with. He loved to have fun in addition to getting the job done! I will always remember that huge smile! To God be the glory!!

I don’t think I ever saw Tommy without a smile on his face! He was one of the happiest and most positive people on this planet and a fine Christian man! I enjoyed working with him at Gulf Power!

In the early 80’s I was the Campaign Director for United Way. We transitions into creative thematic campaign events. Tommy was always my inspiration in creating the themes, report boards and publicity pieces. The most memorable was Captain United. After five years I left United Way and twelve years later in 1996 I moved to Atlanta. But I never forgot the laughter, creativity and passion of working with Tommy. He was a blessing that still inspires me today in my work when searching for that spark. May his memory be a blessing. Jay Kaiman, President The Marcus Foundation, Atlanta, Georgia.

Tommy was my friend for over 22 years. He always shared positive and considerate thoughts with the people he came in contact with. Knowing Tommy and his wife Brenda over the years was a wonderful experience. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. We'll miss you Tommy.

Your friends,

Verne & Christina Hilt
