Tom was a true Saint and a friend these past 11 years. He had the BIGGEST Smile and always a joke to lighten my load when I was down. His witt and humor always made me smile. One of a kind he was.
May you find peace in your time of greaving Mary, I am just a call away if you need me.

Tom and I started our careers at CAS around the same time. He and I worked together in marketing (print) in 1990. He was such an inspiration and friend. Tom always made sure that he spoke to everyone daily and added humor and warmth and his own personal touch and creativity to everything and everyone that surrounded him. He was a very special person and I feel so grateful to have known him as I did. God Bless you all during this time but feel comforted that he was a wonderful servant here on earth. Trelene

I met you and Tom in 1992. I could see the love you had for each other right away. Both of you had a great sense of humor and you were always having much fun...such great smiles! He was a living saint and I am sure he is gently smiling down at you now and he and I both hope that your very deep grieving will subside and the angels comfort you. May our new St. Christopher Church saint (Tom) pray for us, as we pray for you and him (just in case). May the angels comfort you and your extended families.

Tom was one of the best people I was lucky to know. He was always there to cheer me up, I will miss him and his words of wisdom. The kindest gesture you both did for me, was assigning a star and naming it after my Mom, I was touched. I am sorry I will not be able to attend the service as I am living in Florida. He will be missed.

I am so sorry for the loss of your other half Mary. Tom truly was one of a kind and showed me personally, by example, how living with a positive attitude is the only way to get thru no matter what life throws your way. I will always remember his words to keep a smile in my heart....

I was very sad to learn of Tom's passing. You are in my thoughts and my prayers. I truly cherish the days that I worked with you and Tom at QCD. Tom was a great announcer, I can hear his signature calls still, "he takes the lead by a proboscis" or " a six pack of pacers gets to the three quarters". He was a gifted and talented man and a true fan and student of racing. May he RIP and may the Lord smile down on you at this very difficult time.

Our deepest sympathy on Tom's passing. Brad always said he never met a better man than Tom. I second that. We know he will be taken care of in his next life because no one lived a better life than he did on earth. Every time Brad sees Bob Seitz we talk about the good times and how the Quad Cities were never the same after the two of you left. Our prayers are with you. Love Brad and Joanna.

Dear Marytherese _
I just heard the news about Tom's death. I don't think you will remember me but I did get to know Tom, a bit, while he was at the Quad City Downs as the best race caller I have ever heard. From afar I observed the joy that both of you manifested while working there. His exuberance and joy were so contagious that when you both left there was a huge letdown around the track. Please accept my remembrance of him as a good man and my sadness for your sadness. Joe Mc Caffrey

I am so deeply saddened hearing of Tom’s passing today. Kevin and I shared so many happy moments with you and Tom both in Columbus and the Quad Cities. I missed both of you so much after you moved to Ohio. I will always remember Tom’s laugh and his great sense of humor. I would love to visit with you in the near future. Many prayers are being sent your way from the QCA. Love, Jill
