I first met Tom at a hunterís safety class I took my oldest son to. We immediately became friends at that time. A few years later, I made sure my twin sons and their younger sisters attended the safety classes taught by Tom and his team of fellow instructors. That was a great group. Several years later, I would see him at the mall or the Maverick on M street. He was always friendly and called me by name. I will always remember him as kind, friendly, and caring. My leave my sincere condolences to his family and close friends. Respectfully, Brent Weber

May the peace of God that surpasses understanding overtake each of you. Tom volunteered as an instructor teaching so many Hunter's Safety. He cared deeply about teaching proper handling of all guns and was so kind to everyone. What an amazing man to care for Evelyn all those years. Tom will be missed. Praying sweet memories flood your hearts in the days and months to come and God's deep, deep love surround each of you. Much Love and Many Prayers,

My condolences to the family. Especially to Tom and Alan your dad was always a good man and a friend to me. Our families were all friends growing up but we drifted apart. As I got older I would run into Tom and he always had time to talk to me and see how I was doing. I will miss that. Iím sorry for your loss. God bless
