Tom was simply one of the good guys. One of the best people I have ever known. He will leave a void that can never be filled, but at least we know that for Karen, the entire family, and the rest of us, his memory will always evoke a smile.

Brother Tom was great to work with. He always listened to new ideas, and contributed significant new programs for our KofC Council. I will miss his cheerful approach to serving others.

You went away so suddenly and we did not say goodbye, but my heart can never be parted, my memories of our good times will never die.

Karen and family I know how much he loved you and I am sure he will be sorely missed in your community. He was a leader among men and the greatest example of a brother there could be. You are all in my prayers.

Love you all Sandy

Worthy DGK Tom,
Brother Tom was my Deputy Grand Knight and I am unable to describe what a great person he was to me and our Council. No one is as sorry as I am of our loss. Our Council and it's efforts to advance Knight plans and charities was a key wish on his part to do great work. He always volunteered and gave 120% when he participated.
Brother Tom, We will miss you enormously

The Welsh Family remember many good times we had with your family. This is truly a sad time. Try to keep those good memories close to your heart and make sure those sweet grandchildren don't forget their wonderful Pop Pop. You are all in our prayers.

Tom will be missed by his many friends at Chestatee Golf Club. On the golf course or relaxing in the Heron Grill, he was always in a good mood. D'Anna and I send our sincere condolences.

Karen, and Family ~ Love and laughter abound in each one of you, in spite of this huge sorrow. Others love to be a part of what your family symbolizes ~ Faith, Hope, and Love at it's finest! Everyone would wish Tom could stay around here longer, so unique in so many wonderful ways. Hold tight to that eternal connection and feel the loving prayers and support from all who were enriched by knowing him. God bless. ~ Virginia and Albert

Tom was one of the nicest people I have ever known. He had a great sense of humor, a great smile & a twinkle in his eye, especially when he spoke of his kids & grandkids. His family was blessed to call him husband, Dad & Pop POP, as were we who called him friend.

Jenny and my heart hurts for Karen and her family. But most of all, the grandchildren. No pop pop around to watch them grow up.

Tom was simply one of the finest human beings I’ve ever known. We’ve been good friends for almost 50 years. He is already missed greatly.
