Tom is survived by his sister, Doris (Dory) Chesebro of Camillus NY (who described him as a good, caring man and very easy going and also said she never saw him mad at anyone!); daughters, Kim (Rick) Palmer of Surprise AZ and Kathie (Carl) Spinner of Wasilla AK (who both say he never had a harsh word for anyone); 4 grandchildren; 6 great-grandchildren (with another on the way); brother-in-law, Carey (Diane) Watson of Plantation FL; and several nieces and nephews.
