Know that your father will be terribly missed. He was loved by all who knew him and he will be cherished in our memories forever. We worked together many years with West Virginia Highways. He loved to dance, which we did at the Christmas parties. i could always tell when he was ready to embark on a trip to Virginia to see "his girls". He had a spring to his step, a little giddy, and singing. I never failed to tell him "safe travels" and he would question me as to how i always knew. My condolences to the entire family. You had a wonderful father.

Cynthia, Laura & Family, Uncle Tom will always a hold a special place in our hearts. He was a part of the family here for many years, Sunday dinner, WVU and Notre Dame football games, also taking Mom, Dad and Tom to Riverdance, great memories. Unfortunatley prior commitments prevent us from paying our respects in person, Uncle Tom and you all will be remembered today, thoughts and prayers. Take care. Regards, Eddie & Lisa Rowan Charleston, WV

I worked at Materials Division (WVDOH) with Tom (we usually referred to him as 'Unc" from 1981 till his retirement. We became close. His primary job was reviewing, accepting or rejecting concrete mix designs. This became my job shortly after his retirement. I also remember buying a car (a Mercury Topaz) from him for my son who was in college at the time. I was very saddened upon reading his obituary in the Charleston Gazette this morning. He often talked of his daughters in Virginia Beach. I always felt he was one of the good guys that I and most of the others in our section could count on. Please accept my condolences.
