Tom was a classmate at the Academy. Its hard to believe he has passed on at such a young age. Our thoughts and prayers go out to his children, parents, and extended family. His legacy lives on in his family and the honor and dedication he showed by graduating will have left its mark on those he touched. We wish you the best Tom.

Tom and I were in the same squadron at the Air Force Academy for 2 years and I considered him a friend. While we lost touch after we graduated, I often thought of Tom. So sad to hear of his passing and I offer my sincere condolences to his family and his friends.
