Not sure what to say?

I have known you for over fifty years, and never saw you without a smile on your face, or a witty and fun remark. You were always a very dapper dresser, and you surely will be missed by all your friends in Richmond. I'm so happy I was able to visit the funeral home and visit with other old friends I have known these many years. I'm sure your soul is looking down on all of us now.

I've Tom since the late 60's thanks to the music business. We both later worked in private education and the financial industry. Tom put a lot of money in the pockets of local musicians. More important are the smiles he put on the faces of all who knew him. A true gentleman, a man of integrity, humor, style and class - there will never be another Tom Maeder.

Tom, You are a southern gentleman, a dapper dresser and always had a tall tale to share with everyone. A smile comes on my face every time I think of you. Save me a seat at Phil's Continental Lounge in heaven.

I don't know which is harder to find, a good friend or an honest booking agent. Tom was both and more. I speak for a whole lot of Richmond Musicians when I say we'll all miss you Tom.

RIP Tom. He knew everyone in Richmond and if you ever met him you would not forget him. A true 'ole southern gentleman, always a tale to tell.

Tom, you will be missed by so many but we have the memories that are so special of all the places we went and the fabulous times with had with such a grand group of friends. The stories are endless and you will be in my heart forever. Hey now, I love you,

Dear Family,

I am so terribly sorry I cannot be with you all tomorrow but I will be thinking of each of you. We had wonderful times together.

Tom centered between two old pals.

Tom was truly a one of a kind; music loving, always dapper, friend of the people. A southern gentleman with the intellect to wind up or down according to his audience. I met him over 40 years ago. Over the years, I would see him just about everywhere; and when I did he always greeted me with a warm smile and a firm handshake. He is a Richmond icon who will be sorely missed by litterly hundreds of people. Always in good spirits, I had to repost this photo of Tom with Mike McAdam and Robbin...

Peace my friend - Charles Brooks CCS '71

Bless you, Tom. You never met a person you didn't like and respect.
