I'm saddened to hear of Toms passing. And I want to pass along my sympathies to his family and friends
I knew Tommy since jr. high school. Over the years we shared alot of good times working at a few jobs together and for the most part hanging out in the same circle of friends. Tom's humor, intelligence, and thoughtfullness made him a popular and very likeable guy.
I haven't seen him in several years but hearing of his passing makes me miss him.
Rest in peace Tommy , Joe Brown
