I’m sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. I worked with him in the early 1980’s when we both worked at a video game arcade, and kept in touch with him occasionally through the years. It was always fun to catch up with him when we’d talk. Sincere condolences to the family.

Susan and family, I was so saddened to read on social media about Tom. I was fortunate to meet him through GEICO, everytime I saw him around the office he was always in a joyful, positive and fun spirits. When he retired our office was never the same. Imagine my pleasant surprise when I realized we’re neighbors.
May you all be held in the warmth and love of your memories of Tom.

Susan and family, I pray for comfort and strength as you grieve the loss of Tom. He was such a great friend, golf buddy and working colleague over the years. From Radio Shack, Sprint Cellular, 360 Com. and Alltel to our membership in Vietnam Veterans of America Chapter 969, I will treasure my memories of him as a gentleman, great party host, and so much fun to be around. Rest in Peace, my good friend.

I worked at Pembroke Mall back in the 80s at a sports kiosk my dad had right in front of the Radio Shack Tom managed.

I THOROUGHLY enjoyed talking and laughing with him when he would walk outside the store for a few minutes.

Keep in mind, I haven’t seen or talked to him in 30+ years, and I still remember him, and am saddened at this news. God bless him and his family.
