Dear Linda, Tom, and Mr. Basil were the two most respected Plant Managers I ever worked for. Tom was a legend at Reichhold at all levels of the company. Tom would come down to shipping and receiving and visit with us and we all had a good time. Tom knew Reichhold inside out and backward. He was always willing to help anyone, anywhere at any time. Tom never let his stature go to his head, he was always one of the guys and at the same time, he was highly respected by all. I consider myself honored to have had the priviledge to have known him as a friend and a leader, the best that Reichhold Morris has ever had. May God comfort you in your loss. I will never forget him! Steve
