Not sure what to say?

A great guy has been taken. Tom treated everyone with respect no matter what they did at GSFC. He always asked how my family was when we would pass on the hallways and would listen if I looked troubled. Ruth and family , please let all the great memories you had as a family get you through this tough time. Love you guys. RIP Tom.

The world has lost a wonderful person. I knew Tom from my time at Goddard. He was always kind and caring and treated everyone as an equal and as a friend. He will be missed by so many. He left a legacy when he retired. My heart goes out to his family at this difficult time.

I had the privilege of working with Tom at Goddard before he retired. His positive attitude and kindness was always present. He was very proud of his family and truly was a family man. He was a special man.

Such a great man, Tom always made everyone feel valued and special. He always had time for you no matter what, very approachable and always had kind words and smile on his face, it was a pleasure and honor to work with him in Code 700 for so many years. My condolences to the Huber family.

Tom's leadership, integrity and genuine concern for others was evident and stated by all who came to know Tom. Tom was an example to all and his leadership exemplified all that was right about GSFC. He was a wonderful man and my support for him on spacecraft contracts made me proud to have known him.

We met Tom and Ruth over 50 years ago when our families moved to Bond Mill Woods in Laurel. Our kids grew up together and still remain friends. Tom and Ruth were great neighbors and friends. My condolences to Ruth and the children. Lots of good memories.

Tom was my supervisor for a number of years when he was the Director of Engineering at Goddard and I was his secretary. Not only was he a great boss, but he was such a nice man who truly cared for his staff. He enjoyed having fun, as well--it was such a great office to work in. He will sorely be missed. Love to Ruth and all of the family.

with deepest sympathy for Mr. Huber's family and friends. My dad, Jim Stephens, worked with Mr. Huber at NASA, and Uncle Harry Benefiel good friends with him.
Our prayers and thoughts are with his family.

I knew Tom for most of the 30 years I was at NASA and always found him to be one of the most positive and friendly persons I ever knew there. He was, without a doubt, the best Director of Engineering I worked for. He always made clear our mission and objectives. When he stopped by at my retirement party over 25 years ago I made sure he knew my feelings about how I enjoyed working with, and for, him
