Not sure what to say?

Quite a gentleman, great storyteller of worthwhile stories, and a fine golfer into his 90's. Always a pleasure to spend time with. He will be missed by many. All the best to his family.

Enjoyed many hours golfing with Tom at Lookaway, listening to stories and his life experiences. Truly a man to be admired, I will miss him. Peace and comfort to his family and remember him always with a smile.

My wife and I first met Tom at Doylestown Country Club in the early 90's. Played an impromptu 9 holes with him...will never forget the conversation. We continued to enjoy interacting with him at Lookaway Golf Club. Chatting with Tom on the practice range, getting a little wisdom or advice....always a good time. A real gentleman. Glad we met.

I've never personally met Mr. Holmes, but my son received his scholarship and became a Miner in 2010. Thanks to such generosity, my family has come to love Rolla, MO and the opportunities it provided. I even have a daughter-in-law from Rolla, thanks to the scholarship! May this extraordinarily philanthropic man rest in peace and his family bear his loss knowing how he transformed the lives of total strangers through his gifts. God Bless.
