    I worked with Tom at UPS. I always enjoyed his wry wit and humor. I ran feeders with Tom many times into Pa and down to Hamburg NY. He was a good driver and funny to run with. One never got sleepy when running with Tom and talking on the CB. My condolences to the Family. May He Rest in Peace.

    I also worked with Tom for many years at UPS, both as a package driver and later in the Syracuse Feeder Dept. Tom was a good driver and good representative of UPS. He will be missed. Our condolences and prayers to Tom's family.

    Tom was a great friend and neighbor in Magnolia Greens. When he and Betty moved from upstate NY, Tom brought his snow shovel to NC which luckily came in handy for his neighbors after the great snowfall of 1989. We send our deepest condolences to all of Tom's family. May he rest in peace.
