Condolences to Chris, Tom’s children & extended family.  Tom was probably one of the better bosses I had in my insurance career.  Always the life of the party, fun to be around & fun to work for.  Keep that smile going Tom, you will be missed.

We were friends for years and shared the joys of young men building our businesses and professions. He had a zest for life. Fate cuts us in different ways. I’m sorry that Tom’s active, vibrant life was cut short long before he said goodbye.
