All my sympathy - Tom was an amazing human being and one of the smartest people I have known. The world was a better place with him.
We were saddened to hear of Tom's passing. We were happy to know him for a short while and enjoyed his stories! Jeremy enjoyed working with him at Beatty's while they were there.God Bless you and strengthen you in your sorrow.
Tom will be greatly missed by all of us at Evergreen Lake Park. He truly was a wonderful man. Joyce, you and your family will be in our prayers.
Tom and Peggy Leuschen
Tom was the kind of person that you liked from the first time you met him. He was kind, generous, friendly and a great talker of the "avenues". I will always appericate him for coming to help in times of need and his business wisdom, which I still use today. I will miss him.
Our sympathy to you and your family. We are glad to have known Tom. There will certainly be a void at camp without his smile and warmth.
Tom was a great guy, we are going to miss Tom. I bought my first and second skid steer from tom and never looked back. Tom was full of humor, again will be sadly missed. Jeff Austin, Austin Landscaping
My Dear Joyce,
Please know how much we love you especially during this most difficult time. I don't think I have ever met anybody like your Tom. For those who didn't have the privilege of knowing him, I would like to share a few thoughts about my friend, Tom.
He was always the first to jump in whenever anybody needed help at Evergreen Campgrounds. A specific example comes to mind when the campground was hit by a tornado a few years ago just a few days before the July 4th holiday. I will be forever greatful for the way Tom took care of my sister and my mom who were frighten by the experience. Tom made sure they were safe then went right to work by cutting up the trees that had fallen and cleaning up the campsites that were damaged. It was important to him the campground be cleaned up and ready for one of the busiest holiday weekends of the year. Tom's wife Joyce made sure all of the people who were assisting Tom were fed by cooking meals. Because of Tom's hard work and dedication, we were able to celebrate the July 4th holiday at the campground. Something that most of us thought wasn't going to be possible. Tom had such a wonderful way of knowing who needed a friend and no matter how busy he was, he would make time to connect with the person in conversations, he never excluded anybody from activities. No matter how bad of a day you were having it always got better after speaking with Tom, he always made you feel like a million bucks.
Tom was so proud of his wife, Joyce their children and grandchildren. He so enjoyed life. And for anybody who had the privilege of knowing Tom, knows that you couldn't just know Tom a little bit. He truly made your concerns his concerns, your joy his joy and if he had something you needed, he was always willing to share without ever expecting something in return. Tom performed so many random acts of kindness, I can't even begin to list them.
Tom, may you rest in peace my dear friend for I know you were a faithful servant of God who walked amoung us and for that, we are blessed for having known you.

Joyce and family- We are deeply saddened by your loss.Will miss those warm summer evenings when we both got done cutting the grass and we would have a ice cold one and talk about everything under the sun! Will miss his charm, chuckle and witt- always brought a smile to our faces-no matter the pain and suffering he was going through. We are glad he is finally at peace as he has been through sooo much. If you need anything, we are a phone call and a driveway away! Hugs and prayers.

Joy and Tom; What a great guy!! Didn't know him very well but just alittle talk with him and he was your friend! Just like you Joy!
I have many good memories of my Uncle Tom. He set a good example for all to follow. He helped me get through alot of rough times when my dad died. I will never forget him.
I am saddened at your loss. Tom was always a fun guy to do business with. Each time we met (many times) a hand shake and a punch in the arm was part of his friendly greeting. Then the negotiating would start. Tom's word was always his bond. I feel the separation your family is feeling and I will be praying for you all.
To the BEST brother-in-law anyone could have. Tom was always the first one to help out whenever there was a problem no matter how big or how small.
He and Joyce were always there for me and I will never forget that. He had such a big heart and along with his sense of humor you couldn't help but love him. I will never forget all of the good times and wonderful memories we shared. He is in a better place now and I hope to see him again someday.
Lori,so sorry about your dad,please know my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. Linda DiLuzio
Tom was so much fun to be around! He helped us with our son's baseball team; his grandsons, Ed & Mike, were also on the team. He certainly earned his "Grandfather of the Year" status. We cherish the many events and milestones we've spent with the Gresh family. He will be missed, our thoughts and prayers are with you.
I will miss his smile. He was always so friendly. Tom will be missed by so many. Camp won't be the same. Thoughts and prayers to Joyce and the rest of the family.
THOUGHTS AND PRAYERS FOR YOUR FAMILY. YOU WILL BE TRUELY MISSED.
