Tom was a longtime friend and classmate where I met him at Blue Ridge Community College. Shared many conversations and laughs along the way. He had a heart of gold and as big as the world. He would do anything for you he could. He was very proud of his family and loved each deeply. He and my husband could always share a story about their military days, hinting exploits or their motorcycles. All those things he can now do without pain. Rest in Peace my friend and Fly High, Fly High on the Mountain. Our love and prayers to Faye and all the family. Bonnie & Ken.

I remember in high school Tommy drove our school bus. He is the only driver I have known to do wheelies and speed shift with a bus.

I remember when I was about 6 he convinced me that if I licked the bottom of the (medal) ice tray that it would taste like a popsicle. It didn’t! There was also the time he told me that if you stick your tongue on the end of a battery I would see stars. I did! There are so many childhood memories. He was my older brother and where he went I followed. We seemed to find our share of trouble.

I'm so sorry to hear that Tommy has passed away.
He was a good man, and I appreciate all the help
that he gave to me over the years with snow removal.
He was a good neighbor, and I know he will be missed.

God bless you and your family. Stay strong.

Tommy usually always had a smile on his face and liked to cut up and joke around with people but he also had a sweet serious side he loved Faye with all his heart as well as his children and grandchildren,they were everything to him. He also loved his family and often spoke of Aunt Dot and Uncle Lee and grandma and granddaddy. He will be missed,rest in peace now Tommy ❤️
