Tom and I attended Saint Augusting High School in North Park and have remained friends over these many years. I will miss Tom's infectious smile, wit, and sense of humor. I loved his laugh! I/we used to call Tom Molasses, not because he was slow, but because he was very methodical and deliberate in his activities. I will truly miss Tom, and I look forward to seeing him again in Our Father's Kingdom. Your Friend in Christ Jesus Our Lord.

Tom was, and still remains, one of my most dear friends. We both attended Saint Augustine High School in North Park, and we continued our friendship over these many years. I will miss Tom's smile and infectious laugh. I and many of his friends used to call him Molasses, not because he was slow, but because he was very methodical and deliberate in all his actions. I always believed Tom would have made an excellent Mechanical Engineer had he been given the direction and opportunity. May He now rest from His labors and enter into eternal light with our Dear Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ. I/We look forward to seeing you again Tom in Our Father's Kingdom. Your Friend in Christ Jesus, Michael and Laurie Tilley
