I didn't know Tom while in the South Pacific, but I got to know him in the Association. He was a gentleman and always in good spirit. We will miss him

i enjoyed meeting Tom and the Santa Fe reunion (September 2014), and offer my sincere condolences to his family and many friends. He was a hero. Rest in peace.

Betty;
I was extremely saddened to hear this news. I have known you and Tom for many years and I always cherished seeing you. Do you remember when we went to Savanna. You and Tom were the highlight of the trip. I will so miss seeing Tom and I know he is in a better place now. I hope that we can continue to have you with us and we certainly want to be there if you need anything at all. Another Hero is gone and we all are very sad. Thank you for all your compassion and love.

Sincerely
Jim Walsh

My dear Betty, Russel, Lu Ann and Nancy. I received the news of Tom's passing just today. I am so sorry I was unable to attend his funeral.
Tom was a dearly loved member of the 307th BG. His gentle way and friendly attitude toward everyone was an inspiration to the efforts to make family first for the "new" 307th BG.
It was Tom who seconded the nomination for my presidency of the 307th. My own father coerced him into doing it with a promise that I would bring positive change to the shrinking membership. I did my best and was so very pleased when Tom paid me a few kudos for a job well done.
When the camera was pointed at him by the Associated Press reporter in Santa Fe, he made us all proud. And we were all aware that he was telling stories that many of you may never have heard. Tom and Betty will always be considered part of our family. He will be sorely missed. You have my most sincere condolences. I hope to meet you all some day.
