Was surprised to hear of Uncle Tom's passing.
Lost touch with him after dad's and grandfather's passings in 1993.
It was hard for him but he helped with the military services for dad and assist with preacher with his eulogy.
Uncle Tom will be missed. May he rest in peace.

Father Tom and I always had our memories working together at St. Margaret Mary Church in Lamesa, working with Msgr. Jerome Vitek and taking care of him. He never complained, always had a cheerful disposition. He was my rock during that time. I will continue to keep him in my prayers. I'm truly sorry for your loss.

Father Tom was a big asset to the tornado victims in the May 11, 1970 Lubbock tornado. He was also blessed with carpentry skills. May he rest in peace.

Sorry to hear of Father Tom's passing. My wife and I knew him out at Reese AFB during the late 80s and early 90s. He was a great priest and all-around good guy. He always had a word of encouragement when needed or a joke to lighten the moment. He co-celebrated our wedding. He was a crusty old Marine with a very kind heart. We will miss him.

May he rest in peace in Heaven.

Carry on, Father Tom!

At age 4, I was baptized into the Catholic church by Father Diebel while he was assigned to our parish. I owe him many thanks for welcoming me into the one, holy, Catholic and apostolic church. My prayers and condolences go out to his family and everyone in the Catholic faith community whose lives he enriched over the years. May you sincerely rest in heavenly peace and celebrate with the saints and angels.

Father Tom was such a unique soul. He would ride his motorcycle to our parish church, which was 50 miles from Lubbock and the children thought he was the coolest priest they had ever seen. But once you got to know him you realized he really was very special. He had such a personal way of telling a story, in a down to earth manner. Rest in peace, good and faithful servant.
