I knew Tom at the University of Tennessee when he dated a friend of mine. He was 7 ft 1/4 in and I was 4 ft 10 in. He was a terrific person. A good friend. Obviously a fantastic basketball star, but to me a good friend.

I knew Tom from his days at Olympic Oil in Chicago. Despite being a hero in Chicago, he made others feel like they were the special ones. Warm, humble, quiet, funny - the kind of guy you'd want to be your friend. It is great to see so many others note that they remember him fondly for more than his basketball exploits.

I well remember Tom's playing days in the NBA. Sad to know that he has passed away.

Remember Tom at UT in 1966 when I served as manager for the basketball team. He always treated everyone well.

One of the many visits Tom went hunting with my Dad. A memory I will always have of special person.

I will never forget the gentle giant marching next to the shortest guy in B Company at MMI. Watching him bloom playing basketball was such a treat. God bless and comfort all of his family and friends. Mary Jo Shannon

My husband and I would attend the Bulls game and Boerinkle was one of our favorite players. Its something how you always have your favorite plavers and he was one of ours. May he sleep in peace.

Tom was a great guy. Got to know him as Chief Big Oak in our YMCA INdian Guides troup when my son Barry and your son Jeff were in the tribe together in Northbrook. My best to all
