Not sure what to say?

Tom was a great guy who was also a loyal friend and a veteran who didn't find peace until now. Rest in peace, Tom.

I have good memories of Tom

Tom was a great friend and fellow classmate of ERHS Class of 1964. He had a big heart and would do anything for you (within reason). His sardonic wit was legend. He acted in three of my "Hollywood" 8mm movies I filmed with friends in high school. In 2014, Tom invited me to stay with him when we celebrated our 50th high school reunion. We had great fun reminiscing about old times. We watched reruns of "Night Court" and laughed ourselves silly. I miss him...
