I just learned of your passing. I am shocked and saddened. You were an honorable man and friend. Memories of Grand Forks, Vandenberg, kids growing up... never to be forgotten. It was an honor to serve with you -- I salute you. Rest in peace.

Tom was a better brother to me than my own brothers. He was a great guy with a great sense of humor. I will not forget him.

Tom was more like a son than a son-in-law to us. We were blessed to have him for the short time we did. We'll always miss his "Love Y'all" when he ended a call. Loved YOU-all, Tom!

I've just finished reading all the wonderful things everyone had to say about Tom and it's obvious that many people from all over the country loved and respected him. I also loved and respected him. I've known Tom for 18 years and I had the privilege of being with him when he passed away. Tom had come to see me in Minnesota to help out with some heavy duty work on my farm. He was looking forward to trimming trees, putting in some fence posts and riding my recently restored John Deere 40 tractor. Tom didn't make it to my farm. He became ill while still 30 miles away and called me to come get him. Instead, I called an ambulance and met them at the hospital. I'm very grateful for the squeeze Tom gave my hand when I got there. The squeeze told me he knew I was there and he wasn't alone. I stayed with him at the hospital for the next 24 hours, holding his hand and talking to him. I'm sorry he didn't get to see the apple blossoms or the fantastic green of the pasture on my farm. I'm sorry I no longer have this wonderful man in my life. I miss his funny texts and his phone calls. I miss our heated political discussions. I miss his laugh. I am comforted knowing how much love he gave and received from all of you. I am comforted knowing I will see him again.

Tom was the best supervisor and friend a person could have. He maintained his mission vision and personal integrity when others gave in to pressure. Tom's leadership and unwaivering dedication to his troops ensured those he led were successful in their AF careers; especially my own. Any hour of the day Tom was there to listen, provide sound advice and pitch in and help whenever needed. Hi sense of humor was a morale saver particularly when the situation looked dim. His committment to the community is unequalled. He truly cared and would always find a way to help. God Blessed us with Tom.

My prayers and thoughts go out to Tom's family in this sad time. To say Tom was a great guy is a vast understatement. I consider myself very lucky to have known and worked for and with him. He remained a close friend after we both retired from the Air Force. He always looked out for the other guy/gal. He WILL be missed!!

Tom was a gallant, honorable and steadfast friend...Carolyn and I will miss him dearly...he was my wife's friend and comforter when she needed him, he was to me a boss, a brother and a comrade in arms...we worked, laughed and cried together, he hired me and fired me...i trusted this man implicitly...and now our hearts are broken at your passing...our only consolation is that we have now met your family and truly see that you imparted more love on this earth.
