Brother Tom, today was the worst yet. I grieve you so bad, my big brother and fantastic human being. I miss you smile, unswayable committment to kindness and most OD all your smile. You always made me be a better person just be being near you. The sunsets, the laughing around the fire pit, your intense love of your family. The hole in my heart is so big, I can barely breathe. Can't wait to see you in heavan, Tom

And may warm memories remain

Tammy and family, you had a wonderful husband and father. May God give you His Peace and help. I met Tom when he was still in his 20's starting a business making computers and selling all over US. My husband, Virgil, rented to the 'Truax Boys'! They didn't have any prior rental credits, but Virgil was excited as they were full of Enterprise Spirit!
Fast Track! 5 years ago I phoned Millers Place to come in for an interview to have Virgil go to the Day Care for Alzheimer one or two times a week. When we arrived Tom was at the curb to meet us! He had heard we were coming. Tom was now CEO of several divisions of Doctors Hospital and he was there to welcome us. 'What Goes Around Comes Around'!

May GOD bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

May your memories of the wonderful times you shared with your loved one comfort you and your family, today and always.

AVC joins our region in mourning the death of Tom Truax, a treasured friend with a huge servant heart for the community.

While others talked "collaboration" and "partnerships," Tom genuinely lived it out, with passion and humility.

We met many years ago as Non-profit agency CEO's. I came to appreciate and value his commitment to meet the most pressing needs of individuals within our community with creativity, innovation, compassion, and authenticity.

Tom was willing to "push the envelope," and dare to color outside the lines, if it meant a group of folks in dire need would find new hope and healing.

I found him to be inspiring and encouraging. We mourn the fact that he will no longer walk (or often in his case, run...) with us, but we also are confident that Heaven now hosts a man who is worthy of the Master's compliment in the Parable of the Talents, "Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over a little; I will set you over much. Enter into the joy of your master."
