I had the privilege of working with Tom for many years at Ingram Micro. He was a fine man and leader, as evidenced by how his people worked for and with him. Tom was one to assess the situation and see the humor in many of the challenges. He was a pleasure to be around.

I am sorry that I am out of town and unable to pay my respects in person.

Please accept my condolences and prayers for Tom and your family.
