Thank you Tom for all you did for me and for the hundreds of others you mentored sharing your daily tidbits of life. You were an inspiration and a fountain of wisdom. Your life values and principles of integrity, honesty, humility and your caring corncern for others provides a standard for all of us to follow. Your love for the outdoors and your willingness to share it with others will always be remembered, especially the long hikes, the great cooking and campfire stories!! It was a Great run!!

Old camp staff associates and bull slingers since 1955 in Wisconsin and Indiana. Last get together in O7 with correspondance last Christmas. Tom was a good friend and a good Scout. I will miss him.

Old camp buddies. Always a great time together. Softly falls the light of day, as our campfire fades away.

I recall Tom encouraging me to apply for summer camp staff. I first met him in 1964. I recall repairing his flintlock for him and floating a raft of cedar logs down the Wolf with him. He gave so much, asking so little for himself. I am one of those who is so much more than I might have been for having known and worked with him. He will be missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I was saddened to learn of Tom's passing. I took a quick poll of our old scout patrol, now scattered over the country. We remember him quite well. As young scouts in Troop 21, Clintonville, he was our camp Counselor in "River Camp", at Gardner Dam Scout Camp, probably the summer of 1949 or 50. He was our hero, and taught us much. If after almost 60 years we remember him this well, he must have been quite a man, and made a tremendous impression on our young scout minds. We are thankful that we had scout leaders such as Tom, and mourn his passing. Certainly the good Lord will put him on the Executive Committee.
