Anita, Tammy & family,
I am so sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. I have so many wonderful memories of him on our soccer trips many years ago. He could always bring a smile to anybody’s face! May God grant all of you peace and strength during this difficult time. My prayers are with you all.

Rest Thomas, until you hear at dawn,
the low, clear reveille of God.
Thank you for your service to this nation.

I grew up playing soccer with Tom's daughter , Tammy, from the age of 10, and we are lifelong friends. Tom was the original soccer dad to all of us. Gave me a soccer nick name, Sugarfoot, and called me that everytime I ever saw him for the next 30 some years. I will miss his genuine smile, infectious good mood, and hilarious sense of humor. Love to Anita, Tammy and family and Jared. Prayers for peace and comfort.

I met Tom when we were going to Southeast High School. His humor and fun loving nature was unmatched. He was best man at my wedding to Donnie Bell. During the past years we reconnected on Facebook and I could always count on him bringing laughter into my day. I’m sure he’s bringing that joy and laughter to the Angels.
I send my heartfelt sympathy and prayers to Anita and his family...may Heavenly Father bring you peace and comfort. Keep his memory close to your heart.
