Tom was a dear friend and cherished colleague. He will be sorely missed. He was dogged in his pursuit of excellence, fiercely loyal and yet an unfailingly kind and gentle soul. Tom was blessed when he found his beloved Terri. I remember when they met, he was over the moon. My heart goes out to Terri and all their children and grandchildren.

Please except our heartfelt condolences as you mourn the death of a kind, loving, and gifted man. We knew Tom as the man who sold us our piano and kept it in tune through the years but also as a man who loved God and his family. He had been given a gift from God in the realm of music. His ability to play almost any piece by ear was truly breathtaking and it was always a joy to listen to him “tinkle the ivories” while tuning our piano. We loved listening to him explain the mechanics of a piano and his belief that God reveals Himself through the musical scale. We know him as a devoted husband and father desiring to give glory to his Creator. He was grateful for what God had done in his life. Terri, he deeply loved you and spoke of you with a smile on his face. Rest in the knowledge that he is whole, and rejoicing in the presence of God, probably playing a beautiful grand piano.

I am so sad to hear of Tom’s passing. Tom helped me out with the purchase of a beautiful Yamaha piano many years ago. I will never forget his kindness. I always looked forward to piano tunings because Tom was a very skilled technician and great conversationalist. His love and pride for his family was obvious. Please accept my deepest sympathies. He will be sorely missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I’m grateful to Tom for introducing us to a piano in our home. It is now enjoyed by the daughter we purchased it for and her little ones. It wasn’t simply a purchase but a conversation of shared faith, which continued with later tune ups. You will be missed but you will be celebrating with the King, your son, Sam and many others. We will pray for your bride, Terri and family still here as they grieve and love you from a distance…for now. ❤️

Terri and family, I was so saddened to hear of Tom’s passing. After years of knowing your family, (albeit second hand), your sisters and brother and even your grandparents, I feel like I am almost part of the family. I do share your loss.

Please know I pray for you and your family and hope you feel comfort from all our prayers throughout this time. My love and concern for you, Your friend Carol B.

We are so saddened to hear of Tom's passing. He has been a part of our family for over 40 years, as expert caretaker and rebuilder of the pianos that we have cherished. He helped keep beautiful music in our hearts, and was always a kind, caring, and generous presence. We will miss his wit, his charm, his love for beautiful music and beautiful instruments, but mostly, the melody of his gracious soul. We extend our most sincere sympathies to his family, whom we know he cherished above all. May he rest in peace. -Bill and Carol Steinert and family

Our hearts go out to you and your family with Heaven's gain of Tom. I know you are all hurting so much. God's love will carry you through. ~ We have been reminded of so many wonderful memories with you all! - I met Tom with my Dad when I was 15 (in 1983) and I remember liking him from the start - he quickly became "Uncle Tom"! All these years (and all the pianos) have been just incredible to see how everyone's lives have intertwined and how your family has grown. I am so grateful to have known him and for our lives to touch the way they have. ~ The prayers will continue to flow for you all.

Tom visited our home many times to tune and repair our piano. I remember him letting my young son hold a flashlight to "help" him. Later we met him in a store, and he remembered and talked with my son so kindly. May he rest in peace.

Cassandra left a message on October 30, 2021:
Tom was a wonderful friend to my father who passed this July and wonderful second uncle to me. I still miss the times Tom would come eat with my dad and I every week this year and would chat about his beautiful wife, his life, and kids. I am so thankful for his family helping me land on my feet again after my dad passed unexpectedly this summer. I don’t know what I would do without you guys. I am so sorry to that it was Toms time. It is truly never the right time. What will help me get through this is knowing my father was welcoming Tom into heaven last night and that he isn’t alone up there. Tom really was such a great person. My condolences to the family, May Tom forever be in your hearts and always be with you.
