Our condolences to the family. I can always remember going to Aunt Margaret and Uncle Floyd's (God Parents) and seeing all our cousins and Grandma. Tommy always had a joke and a smile, always! When he used to drive he would visit us. Dad and Dorothy were always excited for him to come by the house. Celebrate his life and have a conversation with someone you haven't seen in awhile. My Love to all of you. David Clark...
Dearest Maydene, we are so sorry for the loss of your brother. Love from the Winks
Such a nice guy, I will truly miss him and his sense of humor! Tom took me on my first snowmobile ride. He asked Ed if it was ok, with a wink...we started out nice and slow, then as I became relaxed, he really took me for a ride! We were going so fast, and he was laughing so hard...because our ride ended with us taking a jump up the landing where the trucks unloaded. I was so scared, but he had fun! I never went on another snowmobile ride with him again, but he always asked me if I wanted to go...he loved the outdoors so much! Thanks for the memories Tom, they still make me smile.
