We were all so sad to hear of Tom's passing. All of us "Newton" Elliots have wonderful childhood memories of getting together with Tom and the rest of the NJ Stewarts. It was a Thanksgiving tradition. Lots of kids and playing in the yard outside. And then all sleeping on the floor at the Stewarts. Brud and Linette Elliot, as well as us children - Paul, Bernard, Anne, Nick, Mary - we all express our deepest sympathy to Sally and family for their loss. Tom will be missed by all of us.

I worked with Tom at Digital Equipment Corporation in mid-80's, such an awesome guy !!  I remember when his boys were born, he as such a proud father.  We played together on the DEC softball teams in the Greenville County Recreation League, we won a few titles, but what I remember most was Tom's athletic ability, one heck of an arm from left field along with a good stick. Such a fun loving guy, very unselfish with a gentle spirit.  An accomplished charcoal pencil artist, that is where he found his inner peace.  Tom, thanks for all the memories, thanks for your friendship...most of all, I thank God for allowing our paths to cross.  Rest In Peace my friend, I will see you on the other side.

Tom Stewart, a gentle, unselfish, humble soul, who loved and provided for his family with all his heart.

He was gifted with intelligence, athleticism, artistic skills and he developed each with a sense of responsibility and a caring work ethic.

Tom would brighten your life, not with flash but with the warmth of his smile, his friendship, his love.  He was, and will remain, a cherished friend who has blessed our lives and for whom we are so very grateful.

I was so sad to learn of Tom's passing. I worked with him at ATS and when I moved to the Greenville office he made me feel so so  welcome!  He was so helpful, and positive.  He is one of the most genuine and kindest people I have ever met. I moved from Greenville, but have his Liberty Bridge photo hanging on my mantle. It will now carry an even more special meaning.

Tom was an extremely special individual. I appreciated him always being willing to help out with any task you needed. Once, I wrote him a thank you note for helping with a charity event and instead he thanked me for writing him a thank you note. That's just how kind and special he was. I will keep his beautiful note card on my desk. He will be missed immensely. 
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Sending my deepest sympathies for Tom. Sallie, Kevin, I wish so badly I could hug you both to let you know how very sorry I am for Tom’s loss.

I am so sorry to hear of this terrible news.  I worked with Tom at ATS, and he was such a kind soul with a heart as big as the ocean.  Tom was nearly always the first one in the office and making coffee for everyone else.  He took care of the "little things" that none but the sharp eyed noticed until he retired.  We sure missed Tom when he retired.  Always willing to help out with absolutely anything, and I mean ANYTHING.  You asked, and Tom was there!  Tom did one of his excellent drawings of my house that I will always cherish.  Sincere condolences to his family in this difficult time.  I am lucky to have known Tom.

So sad to hear of Tom's passing. I worked with Tom at Digital in Greenville from 1990-1994. He was one of the nicest guys I ever knew. I remember my wife and I attending a Clemson football game with him and Sally that included awesome parking passes! We had a hippie day at work for Halloween. I will find the picture. We attended Tom and Sally's wedding and I remember the great reception party at their house. We had many good times at work even during the difficult times when Digital was going down. Rest in Peace Tom! Take care family. He will be missed. Treasure the great memories!
