Very fond memories of him sitting by the garage watching the street and Roxie barking at the squirrels. Him having lunch with us on many occasions. He will be missed and lunch will not be the same. Rest in piece, Tom. Reply to this comment

Sorry to hear of Tom's passing. I flew with him for many years in VR-46 at NAS Atlanta. He was a good friend and I enjoyed working with him and enjoyed his sense of humor. I also stayed in touch with him over the years via e-mail and attended some of the squadron reunions that Tom put together. He will be missed and I was honored to serve with him. My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Reply to this comment

So many fun memories of when you all would come up for Christmas. Tommy in the swivel chair with Bailey sitting in his lap waiting patiently for Tommy to sneak him some 'human food'. I hope your memories of better times give you all comfort. Prayers for peace and strength . Hugs and much love to you all. Reply to this comment

I was a reservist in VR-59 Dallas, Texas and served with Tom. Flew many flights together. He and Tommy Berkins and a couple other TARS used to work for me when they could in my stone business. Tom was a good sailor and will be missed. RIP brother. Reply to this comment
