Condolence From: Donald Sabin
Condolence: Another loyal Patriot and veteran has passed much too soon, but we should find solace in knowing Tom is in a better place. Military service is never the same for all, but we are all still brothers in service. Rest in peace, Brother, rest in peace!

Condolence: I’ve known Tom for several years and will miss hearing his deep voice, his laugh and his trout fishing stories. He would tell stories of his grandkids and it was obvious how much he loved his family. He was one of my favorites and I always looked forward to our meetings!
Peggy and family, I’m sorry for your loss! My thoughts and prayers are with you! Tears and hugs!

Condolence: Tom and I served with the 3/5 Cavalry in Vietnam. He left country a month before I got there. I knew him from the Cavalry reunions we attended over the years. Tom was one of the nicest people I have ever met. I feel privileged to have known him.
Peggy, I have no words to express how saddened I am at his passing, yet I know this is far more difficult for you. I hope you can draw strength and comfort from your family and God.
Please take care.

Condolence: Tom was one of the nicest men ever. I am blessed to have know him, and called him friend and
Tom was always soft spoken and so wonderful to work with. He was an excellent carpenter. You knew he would get the job done correctly and on time.

Tom will definitely be missed by all who knew him.
