    As you all know, Tom and I were best friends growing up. I didn’t know he loved golden retrievers like he did, but one of our neighbors back in the day had a golden retriever. I will never forget how this golden retriever loved bit Oh Honey candy that we used to feed him all of the time to get his attention. RIP my friend……

    Praying for comfort during this time, knowing that Tom is at peace in Heaven. Where he is probably giving out nicknames.

    I was in Tom’s class at Westside. I remember him as being that popular football player who was so much fun and was kind to EVERYONE. Later in life, I met his sister, Sue, through her husband, and my running pal, Jim. All of you are in my prayers as you celebrate the life of a really great guy, and welcome him home to enternal life with our Lord, Jesus.

    Sending prayers and peace to all who loved Tom. He was my neighbor in westgate for 18+ years. We use to play kick ball, hide and seek and get into all kinds of trouble in the neighbor hood. Tom use to have this voice he’d use all the time mimicking our parents and parents of the neighborhood, it was quite funny. Tom, Larry and others would come hang out on our front porch cause we always had to be home by 10. Tom could stay out way longer then us lol. Tom was funny and a great guy. He was a big part of our childhood Westgate fun. He will be missed.

    Tom was such a gentle soul. His constant smile when we hung out together at grandma Benak‘s house or just as cousins do and families. I know his loss is so hard for those on earth, and losing a sibling is heartbreaking! He is now in heavenly glory surrounded by Jesus Almighty and all those loved ones. Hugs prayers and condolences to all of you
