My husband Dave and I met Tom and Barb through the CB radio years ago. They used to invite us to their trailer on Depot Street for coffee and we picked them up and took them on rides a few times and to the drive in movies with us. Years later I was also Barbs' nurse at Weston Hadden. I was always impressed with how devoted he was to Barb. He was there every day to see her. He was a kind and gentle man and I'm glad we had the opportunity to know him and call him a friend. Our sincere sympathy to his family during this time.

I know very few people that had Tommy's strength and perseverance. I remember him visiting his wife every day. NO MATTER WHAT !. Rain, snow, wind, sleet. Everyday he would go. He loved her so much. Now they are together again. Anyone who knows him, knew life didn't treat him fairly. But he always rose above it. I admired that about him.
Rest in peace my friend.

So very sorry to read of Tommy’s death. John always enjoyed knowing him at Morrison’s.
He was such a kind man, and I enjoyed seeing him riding his bike around town. God bless him and his whole family. Sincerely, John and Jeannie Mook

Tommy was a very loyal member of our team at Morrison Automotive. He was always the first person there to make sure the dealership was in tip top shape. I'm heart broken to learn of his passing and my sincere condolences to the family and many friends. RIP Tommy......proud to have known and worked with you.
