Tom was the most kind, loving and helpful friend and neighbor. We are so grateful to have known him and had him as our neighbor for so many years. Our dog Annie was his “friend” and he spoiled her rotten! She will miss him and hanging out with him in his work shed getting cookies! We Love You Tom & will miss you terribly!

I’ll never forget the first time I met Tom, it was 6 short years ago when I became the neighbor of Tom and Darcie. After introductions and a small conversation I knew this was a guy I would be able to count on if I ever needed anything. Which he proved true time after time within those 6 short years. It comes with a heavy heart to say goodbye to such a great friend. My condolences go out to all the family and friends.
