ADD A MEMORY

I didn't know Tom well but I do recall fondly a trip that 6 of us took to the Mid-Ohio race track. We all packed into a way too small RV and away we went. It was Thanksgiving weekend so of course, we had to have a huge turkey dinner in the RV. Sleeping quarters were tight and of course we all ate too much. What a night - I'll never forget it. Tom was great fun and such a good sport. Enjoy the memories of your Dad, girls. They will help you through this.

It was a real shock to hear of Tom's passing.
From his American Karting friends, Our Sincerest Condolences to the Smith Family.
Tom was Great competitor and was truly liked by everyone at the Kart track.
When Tom came to America to race, we all looked forward to seeing him and just hanging out with him. He was always there to help and do what ever he could.
From all his American Karting Friends, God's Speed....
May he Rest in Peace..

Girls sorry for your loss ; Tom was a dear friend we did so many things together when we were young . Class mates thru grade school and high school . Slot cars at his house : Sunday nites racing at the hobby store and in Detroit at home tracks . Building a track in basement on Mercer St . Building and racing go-karts . Trips to Mosport ; Mid Ohio and several trips to Watkins Glen . Tom stood up at my wedding . We were co-workers for several years . I will always remember that smile .

Tom was a part of our lives since I met Dan 35 years ago. Always ready to share anything Dan needed help with. Whether it be racing, fish, snowmobiles, motorcycles whatever he needed.
I have one especially fun memory of a trip to a race with 6 of us staying in one small RV, it was certainly memorable!
He and I , many times would end up traveling back and forth to races together and the only tape he had was Peter Gabriel which we played over and over ! When I hear it now I immediately think of Tom lol .
Sylvia and Brigitte...your dad was a good man that touched many people in his quiet way. Here is just one picture of his friendship.

Very sad to get news of Tom's death. If I am correct, the picture of Tom in his obituary was taken at my house in 1986. The joy on Tom's face was a result of holding my newborn son. He was there to help me celebrate. What a smile. What a friend. What a guy. My thoughts are with his daughters Sylvia and Brigit during this time of loss.
