Ken and I just heard of Toms passing and are deeply saddened by this news. We have known Tom and Marylou all of our lives as well as our children. He was their kindergarten bus driver and he rented fishing boats to us in the summer, so we could take all three kids fishing. Our deepest sympathies to Marylou and family.
Uncle Tom Yes you will be greatly missed,but never forgotten Through the years of ice fishing, I have met several people that know of you and the Baggs family. I am proud to be part of that family. I remember so many summers seeing you out trolling on Skegemog lake as often as possible waiting for the big one to strike. Happy fishing in Heaven.. I will miss you.. Susan Smith
Life with Tom was always an adventure..we hunted together fished together and traveled the world while in the service I will miss man whom I spent 56 yrs with I know he will be watching oe his family as he has always done. This is not "goodbye" only "until we meet again my love"
Sorry for everyone's loss I know he will be missed deeply

In the mail yesterday a get- well card I had sent Tom was returned to me along with notice of his passing. This saddened me as in the card I had also thanked Tom for not only being one of the real good people I knew but also for the time he spent driving my sons back and forth to school. There were some good bus drivers in the Elk Rapids Schools at that time and Tom Baggs was one of them. Mr. Baggs did more than just drive my boys to school and back home each day. He helped school them in behavior,respect for each other, and how to conduct themselves. With each day and year all the passengers on Mr. Baggs bus learned the small lessons of life that would be carried into adulthood. As a parent I always supported Mr.Baggs and I thank him for helping make my boys the men they are today.
You were a good one,Tom Baggs,and you will be missed.
