Tom, the world was a better place with you in it. I have so many wonderful memories of the times we spent together that I will always cherish. I would give anything to go grab breakfast at Corner Cafe or go fishing or golfing with you again or go to another NASCAR race or PGA event. In many ways I thought of you more as a father to me than a friend. Thank you for your kindness and wisdom. This one really, really stings. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. They lost a wonderful human being.
Tom was loved immensely here at the retread shop. We worked together for many years side by side. I've always said this and always will, "God broke the mold when he brought that man to life." I can only hope to be able to work as hard as he did. To all of Tom's family and friends, know you are all in our prayers! Tom was a great man, cohort, and friend! God bless you Tom, I'll catch you on the other side of the mountain!
We are greatly sadden by Thomas' passing but take comfort in knowing he is with our Lord. Charlene and I were blessed to spend time with Thomas and his brothers and sister this past June. We pray for peace and comfort for his family and give thanks for his eternal salvation. Wally and Charlene Gorrell
So sorry Thomas, you were a good friend growing up , see you in Heaven
We're so sorry for your loss. We're keeping the family in our thoughts and prayers. David & Peggy Price
