Tommy’s Southern Accent got my attention. But he managed to hold the attention with his many stories and tell it like it is attitude. He will be missed by many but I realize he will be missed most bye those who knew him best. May his legacy live on through the many memories you’ve shared and the traditions that he helped establish. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

I have always had a special place in my heart for Tommy .I felt he was there whenever you need a friend to talk to . He also was a customer of ours for tools. He trusted us to give him the best service and good stories. I will always remember the time a group of us went on a bus ride to Deadwood . That was a very crazy fun time .Tommy I will miss you always. Bill Assman
