  1. Tom was a friend and business partner. We worked together on many projects over our 20 plus year friendship. We often went to the Astros games together.
    He certainly was a creature of habit. When I got a text in the middle of the night it meant that Tom was sending a text or email because he was up and working while everybody else was sleeping. He will truly be missed.

    As Tom's hairdresser, I have had the pleasure visiting him every 2-3 weeks for the last (almost) 30 years. I considered him a really good friend and will miss our visits so much. Tom always spoke highly of his family and friends, particularly the Thanksgiving get togethers. I am terribly sorry for everyone's loss. Rest In Peace my friend.

    Every time I walk out my front door and see Tom's beautifully landscaped yard, my heart sinks. He was such a wonderful, welcoming neighbor. I have lived across the street from him for 24 years.

    If I was up before dawn, I could see him pulling out each morning headed to work. If my husband and I were outside when he was coming or going, he'd be sure to give a friendly wave.

    He went to a few Astros' games with us when we had tickets from our church. He was a pleasure to be around. He was a great listener, and a great conversationalist. He always had a smile to give.

    Each Christmas, he would bring a smile to our face when we would open the door to find a beautiful poinsettia on our porch with a sweet card signed, "Your neighbor, Tom."

    When his niece called me with the news, my heart fell. It happened so unexpectedly. My husband and I wished we had made sure he knew how much we enjoyed his friendship and how important he was to us.

    To know him was to like him. Reading his obituary makes us wish we had more time with him for a lot more conversations . There is a hole in our cul-de-sac where he used to be. We will keep his memory in our hearts. He will be greatly missed.

    Our condolences and prayers go out to his family as well as his friends. God bless you and keep you.
