Met Tom when he was president of Pacific Union College's Men of Granger (MOG). He had the manners already of a mature gentleman. Several years later I had the pleasure of briefly making the acquaintance of Marjory Dunscombe, Tom's wife to be, then a nursing student at Loma Linda University, who had the most wonderful dimpled smile. And what a pleasure it was forty-some years later for my wife Jan and I to run into the Hilliers at a bash thrown by Stewart Bainum in June of 2012 for his friends from PUC days at an upscale hotel in Beverly Hills. We immediately found so much in common that we agreed to meet for a meal in the Lodi area next time we had occasion to drive through. I'm so sorry we never did. Our most sincere condolences to Marjory on the loss of a super gentleman.

Visiting our dad, Richard Baker, we learned of Tom's passing and are so very sorry. Our boys, Michael & Rick, went to school with Todd & David. Please know that Tom was loved and that we care deeply. Michael & Todd's friendship ran deep, and drew us closer to your family.

Yes, a Prince of a man. He had the rare quality of making everyone feel special. We certainly did, he always had that wonderful smile on his face and even on the phone, you could actually hear that smile.
We feel honored to have known him and will keep the family in our hearts and prayers.

Our condlences to the Hillier family Tom was a fellow pilot whose hangar was next to mine at Modesto airport and his wife Marjory was a classmate of my sister in High School. We're sorry for your loss and we'll be praying for you

We are sad to hear of our friend Tom's passing...our prayers & thoughts are with
Marjory & Tom's loving family. Greg & I always enjoyed stopping by the hangar for a good conversation & to catch up. Going to miss his warm smile and demeanor.

Condolences to his sweet family who is.left behind to hold up his legacy. I found Tom to be a man of honor, honesty, & integrity in his life & the way he lived his life & the way he treated his fellow man. We have lost a great man. God gained a good Angel for sure. Thinking of and praying for his loyal wife & family during this time & on. Loved this family so much.

I really enjoyed getting to know Tom over the last year or so. I had the opportunity to give him his last flight review. I will always treasure the memory. May Gods blessings be upon your family. I regret not being able to attend the public visitation as I am out of state.

Mr. Hillier was generous with his time and humble. He has a hangar space next to me in the H Row and he spent a good long time explaining the plane housed there to me a perfect stranger.. finally, after my queries, he revealed his collection and museum to me. Prayers to his family.

I enjoyed knowing Tom and occasionally visiting his museum and chatting about airplanes and flying in general. He was always the gentleman.
