I met Tom a long time ago while working for Collins Radio. Our mutual interests in anything shooting brought us together. We hunted geese and shot trap together plus met regularly with our other gun friends at the gun range for Rifle Club meetings. As we got older we gravitated more to Godfather's pizza and telling stories mostly of younger years. Tom was the type of man you wanted to know and be around. I'll miss him dearly. My condolences go out to his family. Rest in peace old friend. PT

Diana, Todd and family: My sincere sympathy in your sad loss of Tom. I met Tom in 1967 while working at Collins and became friends, leading to being partners in the nice little Aeronca Champ airplane. We had a lot of fun - flying together in the Champ. Tom was a quality and fun guy to know and hang out with and he always had entertaining stories to share with his friends. He also highly valued his family. Please know that you are in my thoughts and prayers in your great loss. Rest in Peace, Tom.
