My sincerest condolences to the family. I had the pleasure of working with Tom during my short time at KBHG. He was the kindest, and most respectful attorneys. He laughed and expressed such gratitude when I gifted him a couple of Pheasant Christmas ornaments. What a kind soul. He will be missed.

My thoughts and prayers are with Tom’s family and friends during this difficult time. Tom was a mentor in my early career and a friend ever after. When he walked into a gathering, that is where you wanted to be, to here a joke or a story or just hear his greeting. Whether you saw him every day or after five years he picked up with you and caught up in a minute. His laugh and his smile were his trademark.
Tom was smart and knew how to deal with any situation. He knew everyone and was the nicest attorney and person I ever met in forty years as a lawyer. He will be missed. The world is a sadder places with his passing. RIP TMH RIP!

I knew Tom quite well as we represented co-defendants in many medical malpractice cases. He was truly a good guy who got along with everyone, not always easy to do in litigated matters. My condolences to his loved ones. Stan Davidson, retired partner Hinshaw and Culbertson
