So sorry to hear of Toms passing,I worked with him at NFS, I hired in at 19 and Tom was one of my first supervisors and always was my favorite, he used to tell people he was helping my folks raise me because of my young age at the time. He was genuinely a good person and a fine man that I looked up to. My condolences

I worked with Tom for years in the G/W Dept at Plus Mark. I was the clerk for the dept. at that time. Tom helped me so much. He was thoughtful and funny. He always came in with a smile. I've thought often of Tom in the past years. You have my sincere sympathy. I know he will be deeply missed.

Jeff. Dru called last night, at the very same time that Harbison messaged us, with the sad news. Know how much we all love you, and how beautifully apparent it was to all of us, how much Tom loved you. Remember those special times. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and Norma.

To my best friend in the world, I am so sorry. Your Dad was an incredible person and like a father to me. I didn’t deserve to be treated so good by your Mom and Dad. I will never forget the great times we had and I regret so much that I didn’t get to see him one more time. I can never repay your family for the love you’ve always shown me . I wish there was a way to express the love I owe this family. I pray you can forgive me for being so far away and for so long. Thank you for always treating my wife and kids so great. I love you, Tom, Norma , Jeff and Kim

Tom was one of the "good guys" who will be missed by all who had the privilege to meet and know him. My sincere condolences to Norma and the rest of his family and friends.

So sorry for your loss but thankful for his joy in heaven and that you will see him again! We had such a great high school class (1961)....and though it has been so many years, I think of Tom and all of our classmates with warm feelings of good friendships. Praying for your comfort. Bobbi Sullivan

Norma, I was so sorry to hear of Tom's passing. He was my supervisor at Plus Mark, but I also considered him a great friend. I know he will be missed greatly. He spoke often of his family and I actually got to meet Jeff at Walmart one day that they were there. He was the type of person that made you feel you needed to strive to do a good job for him just by the way he treated those of us who were lucky enough to have him as our supervisor. I know he truly will be missed, He will always be in your hearts but Heaven gained an angel in Tom. You all have my deepest sympathies.
