Sorry for the loss of a dear loved one. May you find comfort during this grieving moment. Psalm 105:4.


Tom's smile and fun-loving personality will be greatly missed at SEAS and at the SEAS Men's Club. As a fellow Jesuit grad, we often spoke of the good-old days at Jesuit. Our thoughts and prayers go out to Kass and the entire family. - Ed and Patti Traupman

Dear Kass & children, we are so sorry to hear about Tom. You were awesome neighbors who we missed when we moved from Plano. This is a difficult time for all of you. We send our deepest condolences and will remember you in our prayers. Tom was a loving family man . Sending hugs ! Maryann & Bill Richard

It was always great to see and talk to Tom at our Church's Men's Club! He always had a welcome and a smile for everyone. He will be missed and not forgotten.

Tommy/Nicole - I was fortunate to have been able to spend a little time with your Dad at your wedding. He was very warm and welcoming. I'm so sorry for your loss. Thinking of you and your family. Love, Elaine

My thoughts and prayers are with...

Tom had crossed paths with my Dad years ago in his Provident days, and when he called, that is how we first connected. Tom taught me quite a bit of what I know about disability insurance, and we kept in touch frequently over years. He was somewhat of a mentor, confidant, and definitely a friend, not just a work colleague. He was one of the...

My brother John told me of the death of his life long pal Tommy. I had not seen him many years but remember him as a kid and how absolutely funny he was. He wise mother Alice rightfully dubbed him the family comedian. I have wonderful memories of trips the Du Ross beach house in the 1950's. It had two tiny bedrooms, no washer/dryer, no phone, no TV, sofa beds everywhere, ten people living it and one bathroom! Nobody complained. if anyone did I'm sure Mrs. Du Ross, as we respectfully...
