We all are so confident of his landing place, because his FAITH was his number one priority. He loved the Lord with all his heart and everyone knew it. The Lord blessed him with ability to be the perfect FAMILY man. Son, Brother, Cousin, Husband, Dad, Uncle, Grandpa, Great Grandpa.
Talk to anyone in his family and these words come to mind, strength, courage, patience, abundant Joy! There was always a song in his heart and a smile that permeated those around him. He attended more birthdays, weddings, graduations, holiday celebrations, friend and family life events, then anyone we know.

After retiring from printing, he worked delivering flowers and 'good cheer' for a florist. Tom ended his work career with Holmes Stamp Company as a delivery driver. He made friends easily and he was everyone's favorite. Upon meeting him, people knew he would be the kind of FRIEND they always dreamed of having. He was loyal, faithful and full of love. his smile could change your day for the better in an instant! His heart was full and his mind at peace, God speed Tom, we will miss your being here on earth, but know that heaven has gained a champion, until we see you again..........
