My thoughts and prayers are with Tom's family. I just learned today about his passing.
I transferred from Miss. State University to Memphis State in 1963 and
was fortunate enough to have played in the MSU marching and concert bands under Tom's direction. I admired him for his astute knowledge of music in all its forms, but especially jazz. I played trombone in the B stage band at MSU and enjoyed playing big band music of the 30s and 40s, with some new arrangements by Tom. He was a top notch jazz pianist and I think of him from time to time when I sit down at my keyboard. Well, I left MSU after the first semester and joined the Air Force, but I remember that Tom tried to talk me into staying in school and he told me that he wanted me to play in the A stage band the next semester, which made me feel pretty good. I miss his energy and easy going personality.
He was a great band director and jazz musician.

There were many things that happened while Tom was at MSU; I had been teaching at Hillcrest H,S.for several years and doing some graduate work at MSU. Tom's influence on my direction will be remembered forever.
Perfect timing for Memphis to have his talent.
Love to his family.

I was a member of the Memphis State University (now University of Memphis) Flag Corps with The Mighty Sound of the South, directed by Dr. Ferguson, in '74-'75. He was a wonderful leader; all of us band members loved him! God have mercy on his soul!

Sorry I couldn't be there today to honor Tom. He was a patient at our dental office and we all enjoyed seeing him every appointment! We were sadden when it was no longer possible for Tom to make the trek across town for his appointments. He was so dedicated.Tom always had a smile for us and we will continue to miss seeing him.
