  1. My deepest condolences. May our Father in heaven comfort you and your family during this difficult time. What a blessed assurance to know where he is now.

  2. We’re thinking of all of you and wishing you the comfort of your memories of beloved husband, father, grandfather, great- and great-great grandfather.
    We’re remembering Uncle Tom’s laughter and love of life!

  3. Aunt Marian, Joyce, Larry, Sharon and all your families,Carmen and I are so very sorry for your loss. Uncle Tom was a big part of my life growing up and I have many fond memories of him. I learned for instance that there was no bigger fan of buckwheat pancakes than “Uncle Buckwheat”, an endearing moniker he earned each Spring when the annual Buckwheat Pancake Festival took place at Brady’s Run Park! He wasn’t a big man but Holy Cow he could put away an enormous quantity of those pancakes! And then he would go back for seconds! Then thirds!
    When my Dad had to work, Uncle Tom would take my Cousin Larry and I up to Marienville to go deer hunting. One particular season, Uncle Tom had to work but told Larry and I that he would come home and drive us up to camp after he got off work. Since we’d be rushing to pack quickly, Uncle Tom asked each of us several times, “Do you have your gun? Shells? License? “ It was shortly after crossing the Allegheny River when Uncle Tom declared, “Nuts! I forgot my license!” We slept on the floor at Uncle Tom’s house that night, but not another word was spoken about anyone’s hunting license.
    And there is the infamous story Uncle Tom told about a very mean St. Bernard when he was a kid.one day, Uncle Tom and some of his brothers went across the road (Conway Wall Rose Rd) to go look for fossils along the creek bank. Halfway across the pasture, that big mean St. Bernard came charging out of the barn. The other brothers were older and managed to make it safely across the fence. But not Uncle Tom. Fearing for his life, Uncle Tom decided to freeze in place. The dog walked a circle around him, then promptly hiked his leg. Feeling fairly humiliated, Uncle Tom wanted to sneak away. But when he started to move, the dog looked at him and growled. So Uncle Tom had to wait for the dog to finish, after which it turned away and trotted back to the barn.
    I could go on but I think you get the idea. My Uncle Tom was a very special person and he helped make my childhood a very special thing. I am so very grateful for him and will always love him. Thank you Uncle Tom.

  4. My sincere condolances to his family. When I was in college I worked in the Fab Shop clerical office. It was always fun to see Tommy. He was always considerate in visiting our father in his later years.
