They say you never really see the height of a tree until it is cut down. Tom was a giant of a man. Generous with his time and his spirit. If you were family or friend, you knew he would always be there for you. Tom was one of a kind and a true example of what a caring and genuine person is. Our sincerest condolences to Donna and the entire family...Tom leaves a big hole in the hearts of all who knew him. Catherine and Bill Jolly

Dear Donna and family; I am deeply sorry and very heartbroken to hear the sad news of Tom. I will treasure the conversations we had and time we spent volunteering at the food pantry. Tom was truly a one of a kind person. He was the kindest, nicest, and one of the most honorable men I know. He left his mark in a positive way, on anyone that knew him. I was blessed to call him a friend and will miss him. My thoughts and prayers are sent to Donna and his family.

Those of us currently living in Flemington Fields, and those who come after us, will always owe a debt of gratitude to Tom for his selfless service to the community in its earliest years. He was always generous with time and advice, both to individual neighbors, and as a member of the homeowners' team working with the developers to ensure that the community was built and governed correctly. He has made a real difference in many lives here, and we are grateful.

Dear Donna, Marie and Family. Please accept my heartfelt condolences. This is such a huge loss and words can’t describe how sorry I am. Please know that I am thinking of you and praying that our Lord comforts you all during this time of grief.

I will remember Tom/Richie, for his incredible service to this community through the St Vincent DePaul Food Pantry. and am certain his light will shine on. Love Reka
