So sorry to open today’s paper and see Tommy Jr’s name there. While we only knew each other through our fathers, I’ll always remember Tommy calling me after Tommy Sr died and exchanging stories about 2 great fathers and their Blaw Knox days. Thorough Tommy’s baseball playing day’s, his teaching, fatherhood, and life in general I’m sure he left this small part of the world in a better place than when he got here during his “short” visit. My thoughts and sympathy go out to his family and many friends.

We are so sorry for your loss Sue. Tom was certainly a very kind man. I will never forget when he called in to the radio show, when I ran for Clerk. I was surprised but most of all grateful! May Tom RIP.
