He was a patriot, a Christian, husband, raised and highly respected by his children and loved and was loved by everyone of his family members. He will be missed. Thanks, Tom, for being the man you were.

    My dad was one of a kind. He was gentle, kind, loving, and the most amazing father a girl could ask for. I was blessed to have been able to spend many, many days, and nights with him. We would talk about everything, and sometimes, nothing at all. I got to the point where, I knew what he wanted, or, knew what he was thinking, before he said anything. I wouldn't trade those times for ANYTHING in the entire world. If I learned anything from this terrible heartbreak of death, I would say to all who are still lucky enough to spend time with your parents, please do so...it is a blessing that I will cherish for the rest of my days.

    Well, what a wonderful, gentle man ever since we have know him. His son Pat married our daughter and since then we have always enjoyed him at all the functions a family encounters. He truly was an awesome person and we will miss his so very soft spoken stories and sincere wishes for all of our family and his. God bless him, his wife and all of our family. Not many people have the privelege for so many years.
