Not sure what to say?

Dear Joan and Family - I was saddened to hear of Tom's passing. He was a very special man. I have such fond memories of the years I taught at Lindbergh while he was principal. Please accept my deepest sympathy in your loss. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

I am nearly 50 years old, but was just thinking about Dr. Schwob the other day and how much we all cared about him as our Elementary school principal at Lindbergh. He was such a special man, and beloved by those of us who knew him (which for me was 44 years ago!) We send our blessings and condolences to his family!

My biggest condolences to the family. He was a great friend. I will miss him very much.

Joan so sorry to hear about Tom.I have such nice memories of him as my neighbor and good friend on Willowgrove Ct. My prayers,and blessings our with you.

I first met Tom when he portrayed Tonka Coo, the indian Chief at our Boy Scout Tenderfoot ceremony. Was he ever impressive in that headgear and loin cloth in the campfire firelight! Over the years I also knew him to be a wonderful educator and a dedicated patriot serving as a navy Captain. A true gentleman, a great teacher and all carried out with competence and a twinkle in the eye. I truly respected Tom and know he is now in the hands of the LOrd...

Tom has been a Navy friend of many of us for a very long time. I've known him for over thirty years and always enjoyed his company. A fine officer and always a gentleman. A good man! My wife (Pamela Poppenberg) was a student of his in Kenmore and has fond memories as well.

Although there never seems to be a ‘right time' to move on, I know that Tom had been ill for quite some time and am sure he's in a much better place now. Please accept our deepest sympathies in his loss...

Tom,as principal of Lindbergh School, was asked how he was "lucky enough" to get Jackk Salisbury as a teacher. Tom famously said, "He was my first round draft choice. Funny and lovable man. Prayers to the family left behind.
