My heartfelt sympathies to all the family. Tom taught me a lot about construction/carpentry when I worked for him in high school. This tragedy caused me to reflect on many memories, but here are a few to note:
• My first week on the job, after he taught me how to work a circular saw, I cut the cord off. He was totally patient with the mistake.
• Another greenhorn moment came when we were on ladders siding a house. I leaned out too far nailing and the ladder flipped and slid into Tom - who grabbed the ladder and threw us back safely to the wall. We were 20 feet up. He was totally patient with my mistake.
• Yet again another time, I dropped my hammer from a ladder and it hit his head while working below me. He simply said: "You gotta watch that".
The point: He was always a gracious and kind man. I wish I could be talking with him now to tell him that.

My prayers to all related as family or friend!

Tom gave us a gift for life when he built a beautiful deck on the back of our house. When we are out there, which is quite often, we always feel grateful that he built it for us. Tom, you will always be in our hearts. Steve and I will miss you.

We lost a very dear friend. We are comforted by cherished memories of this friendship and the thought that he is in a good place now.

Dear sweet Orfie,
We have no words to truly express our sorrow of Tom's tragedy. We have such fond memories of our dancing and laughing together. May God grant you peach beyond all understanding during this time of grieving. Tom is in heaven with his Savior Jesus Christ and we will reunite with him each in our own time.
