Tom and I were great friends since the first grade of elementary school. We spent countless hours together fishing, watching the Dallas Cowboys and just enjoying each other's company. I will miss his big smile, helping and caring attitude and the journey of life we spent together. He was a good man. But he left us too early.
My heart and thoughts go out to his wife Elena and daughter Diana during this time of sorrow. God bless both of you.

We met Tom while we were all students at Stephen F. Austin State University. At one point , he lived in the duplex next door to mine. He was a groomsman in our wedding. We will always remember his affable spirit and how much he helped others as he grew older. We know he became a man of strong faith as well. Elena & Diana- May the memories you all cherish as a family give you comfort. Pray that his whole family feels God’s presence and peace.

Tom was a dear friend of mine at Highland Park High School and Stephen F Austin State University. Our friendship continued to this day and I will miss his million dollar smile.
