    Tom was a great friend and will be remembered by many for his humor. We played 100's of rounds of golf together over the years. After Tom would have a particularly bad hole he would say, "I suppose you think less of me as a human being now", and we would laugh and move on. Tom, I thought very highly of you as a human being. Rest easy my friend.

    I met Tom when I joined the Wheeling Park Men's Golf Club in the 90's. We golfed together most Sundays and went on several golf trips through our acquaintance. The other posts about Tom were right on when acknowledging his sense of humor. He will be missed.
