So upset to learn of the loss of Tommy. I loved having him around and so did all the horses. Chicagoland has lost a treasure.
We just heard the sad news of Tommy's passing. We always looked forward to his visits and his special way he had with our horses. He will be truly missed.
Tommy always got out of his truck with a huge iced coffee, a box of donuts and the question "Any moose stories?". I had one cross the road by the farm right in front of me and immediately thought of Tommy. He was a great horseman, a great preson and my friend and i will miss him, his smile and laugh and the twinkle in his eye.
My horse lives at home with me in Guilford, VT and that was how I knew Tommy. A more fabulous, friendly, funny person never lived. I can't believe that I won't be seeing him again.
I am from a barn in Bristol, WI, our trainer is Bill Clements and we just found out about your (and our) loss. I was looking forward to Mother's Day because Tommy always came around that time and would brightened up the day at our barn. He will be greatly missed. He was an exceptional man and I not only laughed a lot during his stay I learned a lot about horses and their teeth. He was honest and trustworthy....a one in a million...and he will be greatly missed. Again, I am so very sorry for your loss.
I just found out and I am so sorry for your loss Michelle and River. Tommy always told us stories and shared pictures of you. Words can not express how much he will be missed. I know you don't know me, I am the one Tommy got the Lego from. He worked on our horses every spring for the last 11 years. I wish I could have learned of this earlier and I would have come to pay my last respects. My heart and prayers are with you. Tommy will be forever missed.
I just learned of Tommy's passing and I am truly shocked. I have so many great memories of Tommy from Smithfield, most of all his smile and that chuckle he always had. I can't begin to know the loss the whole Gagnon family is feeling. My thoughts and prayer are with you all and for my old friend, Tommy...may you rest in peace.
We all will miss Tommy very much. I used to look forward to talking to him after a long day of fishing. He was a pleasure to be around. God bless, Mike.
My deepest sympathy and prayers to Tommy's family and to those who loved him. He had a wondeful kind way with horses and humans and the loss is immense. We will miss his lovely presence at the barn for years to come.
Tommy never met a horse that didn't end up falling in love with him...including my 3 big Clydesdales! Everyone at the barn looked forward to his visit because he always made it fun and relaxing for both humans and horses. He had an uncanny way to make you smile and laugh. Even though I only knew Tommy a few years, I will always remember him. We, at KW Clydes and Riverside Ranch, are better for knowing him and send your deepest sympathies for losing such a great person too soon.
I remember Tommy from our SHS Class of 1974 days. He was a very nice man then, and as evidenced by these many comments, he remained so and went on to touch many lives. A life clearly well lived, yet too short.
My sympathy to his loved ones.
May Tom rest in peace.
My fondest memories of Tommy were the many poor people parties we shared together, laughing, drinking, and enjoying life. My husband passed away two years ago and I'm hoping he and Tommy are having a scotch again together. Will miss him - but I am sure he is in good hands
I always looked forward to Tommy's visits at our barn in Illinois. Loved his horsey insights and dry humor. I often helped him go "dental" through the barn. What a patient man with equine and human residents. Tommy, I am so sad, but your are fondly remembered at our barn! (Red Roses Farm)
My thoughts and prayers have been with you and your family at this very difficult time.
Michelle & River: My 2 facebook friends. I am so sorry to learn of your loss. You will continue to be in my thoughts and prayers. Be encouraged. The God of all comfort is just a prayer away.
We had a great time at the company Christmas party, RIP you will be missed!
Tommy, I consider myslef very fortunate to have had the plesure of knowing you and witnessing your special way with horses, with patience and kindness. Mine were better because of you. You will be forever missed.
Michelle, Suede & River my deepest sympathy.
We all feel such a loss, Tommy was so kind and big hearted always with a smile on his face. He had such a gentle approach with the horses. Tommy you will be greatly missed! My deepest sympathy to the family.
I am very sorry to hear we've all lost such a great soul. He had a wonderful way of calming the horses with his gentle approach.
Dear Gary,Pat and Family, My Prayers are with you I know how hard it is to loss someone you love. May God Bless you and Pat.
Tommy worked on the horses at Red Roses Farm in recent years. He was a polite and honest man. He was so gentle and patient with our horses. He will be missed, we are very sorry for your loss.
Tommy came every spring to float my horses' teeth in the Chicago area. He was a great guy. So good with the horses and such a nice man. My condolences to his family.
We are deeply saddened by your loss. Tommy was one of a kind and he will be saddly missed.
My condolences and prayers to you and Tom's family at this very difficult time.

Just heard the sad news tonight.
I am so shocked and saddened by Tommy's passing. I will miss this special man and never forget him. I feel like I am a better person for having known him.
Tommy brought joy and laughter to every barn he visited. No one could keep from smiling and forgetting their troubles when Tom was present.
The horses trusted and truly connected on a level rarely seen with other handlers. Mr. Gagnon was a gifted horseman.
My sincere condolences to his family. He spoke glowingly of you all, and always looked forward to returning home to you.
We so looked forward to his visits, and will feel his absence this year and for years to come.
MICHELLE MY DEEPEST REGRETS THAT TOMMY HAS PAST. HE TRULY WAS A WONDERFUL MAN. I"LL MISS HIM VERY MUCH.YOU AND YOUR FAMILY ARE IN MY PRAYS AND THOUGHTS.

With our Sympathy and Prayers,
Bill & Beverly Ash and everyone at Stone Valley Farm

Hun, I was so sorry to hear of Tommy's passing. I'm sure my Dad and my grandmother were there to meet him, along with the rest of the family when he arrived in Heaven. My sincerest condolences to his wife and children, as well as to Colette and the boys.
Sincere condolences to the entire Gagnon family, Joannie, Liz, David and to Michelle and family whom we never met. Richard and I have some of our best memories playing board games on the weekend at Tommy and Joan's house on the pond off of Mountaindale with Rick, Sue, and Priscilla. Tommy was probably one of the funniest people we ever met. Oh the laughs we had. We have never forgotten those carefree times so many years ago. We've thought of him often over the years and would have loved to see him one more time. You are all in our prayers.
Embrace the beautiful memories and know one day you will be reunited in Gods heavenly home. May Gods grace bring you comfort and peace. Love Angela Drayce and Teigen
Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. You have our deepest sympathies.
My heart aches for my family at this sad time. For years Tommy had invited me to the beach house, and I had never taken him up on the offer until this past summer. I will forever remember spending an hour with my wonderful cowboy cousin!!! I am so lucky I had the chance to spend some quality time with him and River at one of his favorite places... the beach house!! RIP MY FRIEND, UNTIL WE MEET AGAIN....XO

Oh Michelle! Hearing this heartbreaking news cannot be expressed in words, but I have to try. Tommy was one of the nicest people I have had the honor of meeting in my life. He would always get me in trouble @ the shop because we would chat the whole time he was there. We always had so much fun talking and joking. I loved hearing about his trips to RI, and out west to the Rodeo. He was so funny telling me about meeting Rupert! God, he will be missed by so many! If there is anything I can do for you, just let me know.
too michelle and river, my thoughts and prayers are with you, god bless.
TOOTHE GAGNON FAMILY MY PRAYERS AND THOUGHTS ARE WITH YOU, GOD BLESS-

Michelle, I never met Tommy but you and I have exchanged funny stories about the kids,dogs,vacations..Kids jumping off the bridge in RI. Hiking in HI... The way we like to wander in the woods with the dogs and such.. I know he was a special person to your sons just by the way you talked about him.I enjoyed seeing all the pic's of all of your travels together and how much fun you were having... Sooooo when ever you travel from now on I think you should keep a picture of Tommy close to your heart and always take him with you... He will watching over you and the boy's. Pat.....
