We were so very fortunate to have gotten to know Tom. He was truly one of a kind. He kept his wonderful sense of humor even though he struggled through many days. A remarkable and wonderful man, he will be fondly remembered. Barbro and Wendell Eastling, Las Vegas

Tom and I became friends about ten years ago. We had so many things in common – love of country, military service, law enforcement profession, genuine “screw ball” sense of humor, golf, loving wonderful wives, children and grandchildren. When we were both diagnosed with life threatening diseases, we became more deeply and spiritually connected. Tom was a great source of strength and courage for me, especially early on when it was hard to find a glimmer of light within the darkness of my disease. During our conversations, Tom's attitude and spirit were always positive and uplifting. I am grateful that I had a chance to know Tom and I miss him greatly. Last night I spoke to Tom and reminded him to keep looking down my way and that it was up to him to get the Tee time. Sylvia and Angel, we wish we could be there with you Chris and the girls. You are in our thoughts and prayers. Love, Larry and Cheryl Runyon (Richland, WA)

Although I had lost touch with Tom & his family, I never stopped loving and respecting "tomidy". He always made me laugh. I still tell tales about coming home from school to find him and others playing pinball for doughnuts. Good times and great memories with Tom and his wonderful wife Sylvia and daughter "leeky" aka: Angelique . We will fish together again my friend.

30 years ago I met Tom and we immediately hit it off. We loved singing to the oldies (just to annoy Sylvia) and I always tried to one-up his never ending jokes.
His love for Angel and Sylvia was the brightest light that shined on us and his favorite title of Poopa was his greatest role of all.

I will miss this wonderful man and all the laughter he brought to so many.

Tom was a wonderful man who always exuded the very definition of warmth. I will remember him fondly, especially when he would walk in and proclaim he was looking for his young bride! I am so sorry for your loss and am sending love, prayers, and hugs to the entire family. We are all better people for having known him and he will be missed eternally.
