Met Tom in church at the age of 10 and continued friendship for over 60 years, even though he was in California for almost 40 years.  As college roommates, we had numerous visits from the dormitory director and the floor counselor. I treasure the memories.  He is resting at his home near Cleburne.

​Sad to see Tom's passing......   Our class was on the verge of the 60's chaos that fragments our generation, but as I reember Tom, he and his family were very centered and it appears he found his career and family , leading to the greatest we can strive for:  A life well lived....

Sympathies and condolences to Tom's family and friends,,,,,,,,,,,,     Allan Burbage...........

Tom was clearly one of the nicest and smartest guys I knew in high school. Nobody wants to hear you're "nice" when you're in high school, but looking back, it was obvious that he would grow up and be an accomplished businessman and gentleman. I offer my sincere condolences to Tommy's family. I think of him in an awesome place with the God that put him on this earth for us.
