    The saddness at your loss is felt by all that knew Tom and his kind and giving nature. I offer my deepest condolences to Tom’s immediate and extended family and I find comfort that my good friend is resting with our Savior and that I will see him again.

    I will miss Tom and the chats we had at the front desk of Wyle.
    I know he is at peace and suffers no more.
    With my deepest sympathy,

    I am writing this with much sadness as I am very sorry that Tommy left us after a long struggle with health issues. It was a long road of pain and hospital stays and it certainly held him back in life BUT he didn´t let it get him down. I want to share what Tommy means to me and what I got to know about him. He was funny! Oh yes, always playing a trick on me and calling me his `little German sister´, he liked talking about his trip to Germany to me and I would have loved for him to come and visit me (we would have had alot of fun), he was smart and adventurous and he was kind and very giving. I think he was to good for this world. I am certain that he is with the Lord now, free of pain and suffering – dancing and smiling down at us :)

    I am sending my sincerest condolences to his sisters, brothers, niece, nephews, all family members and all that loved him but most of all to his loving mother Lucille and father Tom.
    With much love to you Tommy and proud to know you, I will never forget you and how sweet you were to me.
    your little German sister,
    Bianca Quell

    It is with much sadness that I learned of Tom’s passing. I have been a co-worker of Tom’s at Wyle for many years and we shared a mutual acquaintance here in the county. Tom was always so pleasant and nice to chat with. I’ll miss seeing him here in our hallways but I am happy he is no longer suffering. To his family, I am deeply sorry for your loss. I know you will miss him greatly. May he find eternal rest with the Lord! We’ll miss you Tom!

    I just found out about Tom’s passing. He was so much more than a friend to me. I was always there for him when he needed a friend, or someone to help him around his place. You will be so very missed. My prayers go out to all his family and friends. Rest in Peace my dear friend.
