Tommy lived everyday with great love for his family and friends. He was calm and reserved, patient and kind, soft spoken and knowledgeable. He had the ability to give advice with both wit and wisdom, and perfected and loved the art of conversation. Listen. If you were blessed to have had a deep discussion with him, you would listen. Words that only he knew how to eliquently put together would be informative, diplomatic, and compassionate. He was passionate about his family and his work. He was respected and admired by those who worked with him and beside him, as he put his best into every task. He will not only be remembered for his character, but his honesty and integrity. Tommy was blessed with many good friends, and was eager to help anyone. He left a positive impact on everyone he crossed paths with. Tommy was the ultimate hero to his grandkids, and was actively involved in their lives. His love for them turned him into an adventurer, a companion, a story-teller, and a playmate. His heart was filled with joy and love. Tommy was the rock of his family, the guiding light. He was great, truly great, and there is no way to do justice to his life and his value in a column. We were blessed with the best, and it was an honor to have known and loved him. He lives in our hearts and memories, until we meet again. This is where the cowboy rides away…
