With deepest sympathy to the family during your time of grief...God is for you a refuge and strength, A help that is there to be found during difficult times...May God provide you with peace and comfort to endure the days ahead...(Psalm 62:8).
Leone and Family,
I was saddened to hear of Tom's passing at a luncheon with several Greenbelt Patrol Volunteers today.
You and Tom were among the most faithful and productive of the Boise Police Volunteers for many years.
During the late 90's a rough element had taken over the greenbelt and parks. Three young women were assaulted.
In response to these events the Volunteer Greenbelt Patrol was formed in 2001 and for the next 10 years you and Tom patrolled at least 1 five hour shift per week on bikes and in golf carts. During this time no assaults were recorded. The greenbelt and parks became safe for families again.
May God bless you and Tom for your contributions of time and talent to help make our community a safe place to work and play. May the younger generation see you and Tom as examples of how individuals can make a difference in their community.

I had the pleasure of meeting Tom on a few occasions over the past year. He was a nice man. My thoughts and prayers are with the family, may your many great memories together bring you comfort.
Leone and family, My deepest condolences to all of you. Tom was a great gentleman and friend. I had the opportunity to volunteer with Tom & Leone on the greenbelt on Saturdays and was part of a great team that made difference. You are in my thoughts and prayers. God Bless. Laurie
