Tom and Phyliss were our neighbors, and my 2 sons went to school with Gail and Julie. I couldn't ask for better friends! Both Tom and Phyliss had a great sense of humor. I enjoyed his phone calls, in which he never identified himself, just made some crack about a memory of the past! Then we would have many good laughs ! He was known for making great Sauerkraut! I know he will be greatly missed by many many people!
Tom and Phyliss were dear friends of my mom for more than 30 years. Their caring, sharing, aid, and love enabled Shay to live independently for many extra years.Our family is forever grateful.
I met Barney five years ago while his wife was at Appleton Medical Center. Since that time I have had the privelege of knowing him more through The Next Step Program, St. Vinney's and several more stays at AMC. Barney was always able to make conversation and laugh. This is a valuable trait! Thank you for being my friend Tom. Fondly, The Big Kahuna
Tom was a friend you can count on. He was blessed having a greate lady like Phylis in his life and now that he joined her in eternity he is a happy man. I can only share good memories on both of them
I mill miss them both.

I last visited with Tom at Columbus' funeral. We had a lot of laughs; he always liked picking on me and my sister .... and whenever our paths crossed, we always reminisced about the shower curtain dress video. Special times on Lee Street will always be remembered.
Tom and my husband Bert were stationed in Germany during World War 2, they were roommates for 3 years and became best friends.
Bert passed away 2 years ago and Tom helped me with my grieving. Tom had lost his wife Phillis, and we grieved together. We became close friends on the telephone and remained that way until his passing. The phone is quiet now and I miss him terribly. Rest in peace Tom.
Tom and Phyliss were our next door neighbors for 26 years. Tom was always wondering what we had going on and would let us know if we needed to know our garage door wasn't closed or he would holler for Tim to come over and look at something! When we sold the house to our son Corey, Tom continued to look out for him and his family. He was a great neighbor, and an awesome volunteer in the community. Phyliss...your break is over!! Tom has arrived!! (Please tell Tim we miss him!)
