Memories & Candles
Tom was a good friend of my family (Roland & Frances Warner). I knew Tom from time I was 7 years old and he was already in high school. I had a mad crush on him and he always told me that he was going to marry me when I grew up! His nickname for me was "Darling". Of course it was a "school girl crush" because he was much older than I was! Tom was good friends with our

I just returned from a business trip in Florida and read today that Tom had passed away on July 7th. Tom, Pat White and I were best friends in high school and were inseparable. The three of us enjoyed many good times (and hijinks) for several years after high school. Tom and I kept in touch throughout the years and he consulted me many times when he was injured in South America while working as an iron worker. Tom was

I remember meeting Tom the first time...he was with Lisa. We were in New Braunfels celebrating my son's birthday and he came along with her. He was such a good sport. He floated the river with us, put up with all of the questions we had for him, making sure he was going to treat our Lisa right. He passed that test and many more. Tom was so sweet, kind and always happy. I honestly can't remember ever seeing him

Tom, we will never, ever forget the friendship we shared. You were an amazing man. You never once disappointed us in any way. You were always a man with a warm heart, a dazzling smile, and a joy for life. We are so much better for having known you and loved you for the past 15 years. Someday we will be joined with you in eternal worship and praise of our Lord Jesus Christ. That will be a glorious day! We love you. --Debbie & Dewey

We're all still in shock. I will always treasure my friendship with both Tom and Troy, and will make a special effort to never forget how much they mean to me. God bless.

I visited with Tom at our 30 year highschool reunion and enjoyed catching up with him at that time. He was missed at the 40th (a couple of weeks ago). I noticed his name in our 40-year Reunion Class Direcory and was going to send him an e-mail to see how he was doing. I'm just sorry I never got around to it. My prayers go out to his family. Rest in peace, Tom. God Bless.

When I first met Tom, he did not hesitate to come up to me and hug me. He whispered in my ear, " You are my cousin now and don't you ever forget that, we are family." I was deeply touched how I was included in his life and his family. Every family event he would find me and scoop me up in those arms and whisper, " Hey Cuz, good to see you." What a special light and a
