Simply The Best,
Listened to Tom for all of his broadcasting years. I remember the Saturday night A.S.U games on one coast, and the Sunday morning Cards games on the other. I don.t know how he did it, but he was truly a proffessional. Grew up listening since I was a boy, you will be missed.

Dear Bonnie and Family,

i share in your grief. I pray you have friends and family to comfort and support you in the days ahead. My Richard died on November 21. He had been in the hospital for six weeks with infections following surgery. Rich often talked about Tom's visit to the Indy 500, and how exciting it was for us to hear Tom broadcast from a phone in our dining room, and mention our names! I know your children will surround you with love. Trust that Tom is in heaven and waiting for you there.

Dear Cousin Bonnie,
We are so sad to hear this news and have you in our prayers daily. May God's peace which passes all human understanding keep your heart and mind safe in Christ Jesus.
We love you and send our deepest sympathy to you and the whole family.

Sun Devil sports was never the same when Tom Dillon (the voice) quit doing the radio announcing (especially football and baseball) I would hope the ASU athletic department would choose to honor Tom in some fashion. If there is a place in heaven for sportcasters Tom will fill the position.

I first listened to Tom Dillon when I was in grade school ('70's). We huddled around the radio in Globe on Saturdays to hear Tom how the Devils were running, tackling, throwing, shooting the ball, batting, stopping the opponent and of course Scoring! We became endeared to the Devils, thanks to Tom. If the Devils lost, it was okay because Tom reported it like it happened and you knew the next game was a new chance. Tom conveyed the excitement of the possibility of each game, he described the fans, the weather, the coach's expressions, the shadows in Sun Devil stadium, the fans and the jubilation of a score, interception or defensive stop. When Tom said "Frank Kush" or "John Mistler" or "Mike Pagel", those people became real and they were as real as Tom was. The Dodgers have Vin Scully. The Devil family will always have and remember Tom Dillon. Bye Mr. Dillon and thank you so much

I was stunned, as many of us were to hear of this sad loss. He was the Voice of the Sun Devils for most of my life. I grew up knowing no one else. I stopped listening to the games when he left. I may not have known him personally, but I will dearly miss him. My love and prayers for you all!

Bonnie,,
I am so sorry to hear about Tom. My thoughts and prayers are with you. Memories of Tom will keep him close to you in spirit and thought and in your heart forever. We will always remember how he got Angel in the car so we could begin our trek to Oregon.

I'll remember Tom Dillon for his ability to create word pictures with his unique play by play style that blended the excitement of Tom "the sports fan" and Tom the "complete broadcast professional", who always "got it right"! His legacy will live on in the many lives that Tom helped along the way.
