Mr. Loveall welcomed me as a scared, shy 1st grader to McKinley school over 30 years ago. I still remember my time at that school and how he was a friendly, kind man. He will be missed and fondly remembered.
I ran into Tom about a year or 2 ago, introduced myself and to my amazement he remembered me and my siblings from McKinley....that was like 30 yrs ago! He was a truly amazing man & educator!! God bless you Tom, may you rest in peace!

I treasure the time Tom and I spent on the City Council with Tom! He was such a super guy...............
Tom had a special way with kids, parents and faculty. We enjoyed working with him at school functions and PTA. Our kids always talked about him like he was their friend! May he rest in peace! Ron & Sue Ernst, Appleton
From the time my sister Marie introduced my parents and me to Tom at Camp Phantom Lake, I looked up to this handsome man who could drink 12 bottles of Pepsi a day and who adored "Terry." Today I looked at their pictures when they were married, and after first Rich and then Shari were born in Germany while he was stationed there, and they were so happy together and in love. When they returned and first lived in Middleton, Tom would patiently listen to my calling him each week to read him the riddles from "My Weekly Reader", and he NEVER knew the answers! Imagine that! Dan came along a few years later, born in Madison, and he completed the family with his love. The special qualities I will remember most about Tom are his easy-going smile and enjoyment of simple pleasures outside his family: dancing, bridge, dogs and cats, the Packers (in a good game), travel, other hobbies too numerous to mention, as well as the many children who passed through all the schools where he worked. I can see Tom clapping his hands together in delight as he thinks of all the wonderful memories that made up his life, and that is how I will remember him.
