Scott, I was sorry to hear from a friend in Evendale about your Dad. I was the Jr. High School Nurse when your Dad was at Evendale & the Central Office. I had great respect for him as an administrator. You are all in my thoughts & prayers.

A very short acquaintance of mine but one who will be remembered. Tom hired me just a few short months ago and was a big part of my decision to retire as a Registered Nurse and take a somewhat "easier" job as an aide to special needs children. I am sure he was passionate in everything he set his mind to accomplish. He was full of life and very kind. You instantly felt comfortable in his presence. My heart goes out to all who loved him and those whom he touched over the years. GOD's peace and blessings to all.

Tom was a wonderful, knowledgeable and professional mentor to me during my years at Evendale Elementary. He always gave his best and expected the best. I have always respected and appreciated Tom as an educator and friend. He also appreciated that family came first and asked about my husband, son and daughter years following my tenure at Princeton. My heartfelt sympathy to JoDee and Tom’s family.

Tom helped implement the vision of Ed Honton during the sectond half of the Ohio to Erie Trail Fund's 26-year history. He led the organization through important strategic decisions that helped improve cycling across Ohio. He was a leader and a friend - he will be missed. My sincere condolences to his family.

Our deepest condolences to Tom's loved ones. He will be greatly missed by all. He was the go to person for anything and everyone. Always eager to help anyone, and always with a smile. Always, the educator, never missing a teachable moment. I can still remember him quizzing Jodee on the names of all the bridges in Hamilton whenever they were out driving. So enjoyed his friendship and will miss him immensely Mark and Bonnie Buckle

I only recently met Tom during this year's Ohio to Erie Trail Ride but I've known about his and the OTET Organization's efforts to improve cycling trails in Ohio for some time now. Tom was a warm and generous person, fun to be with and a great administrator and organizer. I very much enjoyed his company and enthusiasm. He left a great legacy in the OTET and will surely be missed.

So very, very sorry about Tom. I so enjoyed his passionate and enthusiastic support of the Ohio to Erie Trail and especially our efforts to piece it together here in Galena in Delaware County. I am so sad that he will not be here to see it completed.
