Tom, the world will never be the same without you. But during your service, the minister was right. You better understand and appreciate a person by seeing and knowing the people he left behind. You were very loved and very respected and your loss will leave a huge hole in all of us. Randall Drive will miss you always and your workplace will never be the same. Heaven gained one heck of a person and we will miss you terribly. Marta, Amanda, Brandon, Dylan and Logan, your dad was one of a kind. Remember him that way always.

I love you guys so much. Tom was the best husband and father. I loved his love for animals and the outdoors. I loved his smile and his smile and his sense of humor. We mourn with you all and we are so sorry for your loss! Randall Drive will never be the same.

Tom was someone who took me by surprise when I started working at VEGA. He was always so kind and upbeat, even through stressful or irritating situations. No matter what kind of flak he would receive, the man stayed calm under pressure. Always keeping a smile on his face as to not discourage anybody around him. My heart weighs heavy for his loss. I will greatly miss Tom and will *always* remember him for how kind he was to me during my lowly co-op years. He was taken far too soon.

Marta and family: In the years I’ve spent working with Tom, I have come to know several truths about him. He was kind, generous, thoughtful, honest, understanding and always willing to make himself available to those that needed his help. He meant so much to those of us that worked closely with him. His smile, infectious laugh and general presence will be missed greatly around the office. When I think of how much he meant to those of us that were privileged enough to work with him, I begin to realize that I cannot even fathom how much he meant to your family. Wishing you strength and peace in your time of loss.
