We are so sorry about Tom passing. He was such a nice person . He will be missed by all of the Highway Department employees.
So very sorry to hear of Tom's passing. My dad Gus and brother Darrell has shared so many wonderful stories about him. He will be truly missed.
Dear Jeanene and family, please know that you're in my thoughts and prayers. I've known Tom for several years. He used to work with my brother, Jimmy. Tom was always helpful to older folks and me, too. Tom checked on Ray Swift at his store several times a week. I lived across the road back then and Tom also helped me start my lawnmower when I couldn't. Tom's good nature will be missed by all his friends and family. So sorry for your loss.
Wassan and Vickie Broyles
Sorry to hear about Tom. When I would see Tom on occasion in the county truck out working somewhere or running some piece of equipment or maybe out on the tractor he would always smile and wave and give me a shout in that deep voice of his. Family, friends, and our wonderful community will truly miss Tom. Our heart felt condolences go out to all the family, Wassan and Vickie Broyles.
