    I have known Tom going on 6 years now. We worked together for the COP organization with the Volusia County Sheriff's office. I remember when we would sit down between shifts in our office and discuss and solve the world's problems. That was always a good time. During the Coronavirus pandemic, in the early stages, we were required to close down the parking lots to the beaches. I would make sandwiches or buy subs from Publix and take them to all the volunteers that were working. Tom informed me that he would rather have a peanut butter and jelly sandwich. The next day I made him one with grape jelly and he said it was good, but he preferred Strawberry jam. The next day and from then on, I made him PB&J sandwiches with Strawberry Jam. This went on for several weeks and he sure did appreciate it. He was always a joy to be around. The last text I got from Tom was him thanking me for the PB&J sandwich that I made for him. That's okay Tom. One day I will make you another one. You will be missed my friend.

    What a joy it was to know Tom. We spent a lot of hours riding together and there was never a dull moment. He was a great teacher as well as a better friend. When I spoke with him a couple of weeks ago, he told me to enjoy my tours and not to worry because “I’ll always be riding with you”. Such a true gentleman.

    Tommy was my best friend, and the most important person in my life.
    When I felt awkward and bullied in CCHS, Tommy was there. He helped me out of my shell and encouraged me to get into sports with him. From there my grades improved, and we both left the town we both loved upon graduation. Sadly I never saw him again.
    I will always remember Tommy and keep him as close as my fallen Army buddies.
    May God bless you Tommy,
    Clark

    Tom was a friend from high school. We became better friends when he moved to Ormond Beach about the same time I did. He was always ready for a get together when classmates and friends from Cornwall came for a visit.
    He will be missed
