Tom was the best boss ever. I remember him saying "You get a star on your folder for that Linda" and that was all the recognition I needed. I'll never forget he and "The Chief" with their pant legs rolled up the day the basement flooded handing us everything we needed to run the bank. He will be missed by a lot of us.

Lucille, Tommy, and Janet, we are saddened by your loss. Tom and i shared many laughs and stories over the years in Rotary and from time to time when I did some consulting for him at the bank. He will be sorely missed! May God soon replace your sorrow with fond memories of the past! With deepest sympathy...Myron and Donna Treber

We were so sad to hear of Tom's passing. We know he is in a new body in the presence of Jesus and we will all get to see him again one day. We are all heaven bound in the hope we have in Christ.
Tom's humor and smile is what I remember the most. Always had such funny things to say and kept everyone laughing at family gatherings. He was such a well kept man and hard worker. So full of life.
Our love and sympathy are so heartfelt for Lucille, Janet, Ron, Annette, Andy, Angie, Amy, Tommie, Jackie and little Tommie and the rest of the whole family.
Our loss is heavens gain. He will keep them humored up there until we get there.
Know we love all of you and will be keeping you all in our prayers during this time.
