I had many great memories of Uncle Tom. May he rest in The times we visited when I was younger and his pancake breakfasts on Sunday mornings. The way he liked to joke around. Words can’t express how much he will be missed. May he Rest In Peace .

Tom was a wonderful older brother. He was 12 years older than me and in some ways like a father to me. He intervened on my behalf many times, even to the extent of keeping me in college. Tom, Lee, Marsha and I had many good times together. I miss him very much.

My deepest sympathy to his wife and family.
