Sherri/ Christie, So sorry to hear that Tom has passed. My Tom and I have many wonderful memories of time shared, especially when we lived in Mauldin. And then living near each other in Anderson. I want you to know that I still miss your mom so much; she was my best friend and confidant since we moved here in 1982. She was the first neighbor to greet me on Ashleybrook Ct and we were friends with her and your dad ever since. Love to you all, Phyllis

Tom was a devoted family man. He never met a stranger and was always willing to help anyone in need. His kindness and generosity, along with his wonderful sense of humor, will be missed. Rest in peace, Mr. Tom.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

My favorite thing about Tom was that he was always smiling and making other people smile. We watched him hit so many goals at the gym and we all got such joy from watching him and taking his picture every time he hit a new goal. He was always an inspiration. A beautiful human with such a kind heart. We had many beautiful conversations throughout the years and shared many stories and struggles. May he now have be dancing in heaven with his bride. My deepest condolences to the whole family and prayers for comfort during this most difficult time 🙏. R.I.P Tom
