Tom was one of the greatest men Ive ever known, and certainly the greatest dad Ive ever known. Im grateful that I got to be his foster daughter for a summer. I learned a lot from him and his family. I will love him in my heart forever.

Oh my there are not enough words to express the love and compassion Tom had in his heart. This man has shown me love, consistently, never failing and always right on time. Rita I am so sorry for your loss but I know Tom is in a better place and at least he doesnt hurt anymore. I am hoping to be able to attend the service but its a holiday and most already have off. Tom will always be in a special place in my heart, and the lessons I have learned from him are timeless. Thank you for sharing your love & life with me Thomas Strunk~~~ Vicki Shields

My sincere condolences to the family. Tom was one of a kind, a friendlier person ever lived. He always greeted me with a smile and was genuinely interested in what was going on. Everyone that knew him were better off for the experience.
