I am saddened by the news of Tom's passing. It was a pleasure knowing and working alongside him. His laughter and enthusiasm were always contagious and his dedication to helping others left his mark on a great many people. He will be missed.

Tom was one of the most kind and easy going man I have ever met and what I loved best about him ... he was such a wonderful husband to Mary and father to Stephen. I never heard a snarky comment about anyone cross his lips. And he was devoted to his family 100%! We have lost a true friend but his family has lost his light but NOT his love. (Karen May)

Sorry for you loss. We rented from his father Cleon in the 1950s. We lived next door to the Kull family. I remember Tom helping my mother making bread as well as other things. Cleon was very good to our family.
