Tammy and family,
Tom will be missed so very much. He added to our Thursday shuffleboard as only he could do, wearing his sunglasses that earned him the name Hollywood and making phone calls to someone across the room then hanging up.
The first chair will always be Tom's.
Tom and Tammy were always generous in supporting our lodge. Love Diane (DiDi to Tammy)

Dad,...You taught me "Big boy's don't cry" and to, "Be a little man for you" so
this little man will try not to cry when I say, "I LOVE YOU"....You were a great Dad, you were a great buddy, and a great friend,more importantly you took me as I am ....That's a true friend......You also taught me that friend's are Family , Which in your case is an extremely LARGE FAMILY. And I know that you loved everyone in your family

Just me Tammy, and I want to thank all the family, friends, and extended family for all the moral support, caring, sharing, and fun times that we’ve all shared with you. Its happy hour and I’m really missing you, and also boating with you. I guess you’re up there looking down having a happy hour with the all your friends and angels. See you when I see you.
Love you always,

So sorry to hear of your loss. Tom was a great friend, the life of the party and the village will not be the same without him. We pray that time and fond memories will give you peace.

Thank you Dad for teaching me so many things-things I didn't even know I was learning at the time....how to work hard, how to have fun, how to do a job the best you can.
You treated me like your own.
I loved you Ken

Tom was such a good friend. Always with a smile and ready to help. We had some crazy times too! The lake will not be the same without him. It's hard to say goodbye to a buddy - we will miss him so much. He was a good man.
Our deepest sympathy to all his family
