“Papa Tom” as he was affectionately called was a devoted husband and caring daddy, granddaddy, and brother. His life was dedicated to God and taking care of his family. Being a hard worker, he never complained and always got the job done. “Papa Tom” was known to speak his mind, but he always told the truth when he did. He loved the outdoors and enjoyed fishing, riding his side-by-side, running the excavator and gardening. Most of all, “Papa” enjoyed spending time with his family, especially his grandchildren and great granddaughter. They all were his life. Everyone who knew “Papa Tom” loved him and he loved in return. Being a man of great integrity, he was dependable, and a friend to all. “Papa Tom” will surely be missed but without a doubt, he was a true gift from God. All who knew him were truly blessed.
