I worked with Tom at the NC
Utilities Commission in the '70's. Tom was a cherished friend and he always made me feel like family. I remember he and Daphene attended our son's first birthday party - they gave him a toy dog that barked....which of course made Chip cry??? Making special memories are what friends do and Tom was a special friend.

My husband, Alex and I lived in Fairfax Hills 2 doors up from Tom and Daphene. We had some good times with them. Did you know he could walk a tight rope? We used to have coffee in the afternoon with Tom and some of the good old McDonalds boys at Lake Boone. He will be missed.

Tom's dad and my dad were close friends when we lived in Greenville. I have such fond memories of him. Met Tom a few times over the years. Wonderful family.

I knew Tom for many years. He was a friend that I will never forget. We shared many special times with our granddaughter. I can keep these special times in my heart-- I have many memories of Tom. Tom loved family and he showed it. This family will miss his love. He is looking forward to seeing you again.
