So sorry to hear of Uncle Tom's passing. He was such a happy upbeat guy. He had the best laugh. I have so many good memories of him at Christmas time at Grandma Melba's house. You are all in my thoughts and prayers. ❤❤❤

I knew Tom thru Dick Lane, he thought a lot of Tom. He was a funny, sweet man and will be missed. My thoughts and prayers go out to all his family & friends.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Knew Tom from Purdue, what a character. He always had something to say normally with a smile. I remember one Sunday morning I was heading south on US52 and this pickup truck passed me, and there was Jo (also from PU) sitting out/on of the window just to wave at me as they past on the way to some race. I think Tom was still racing as I'm was not a slow driver back then. Was always funny that tall Tom had a helper (Ron) when he worked in the store room at Cary Quad who I think was under 5 tall. RIP Tom

So sorry and sad to hear of Tom’s passing. Our friendship started in the mid 60’s when we were next door neighbors. Tom sponsored me into the Eagles. We raced together. Tom drove and I turned the wrenches. Still have photos of Tom holding checkered flags hanging in my shop. I am blessed to have had him for a friend and will cherish the many memories I have of all the fun times we had and all the mischief we managed to get ourselves into. RIP “Dingy” and may the checkered flag always wave for you.

Sorry to hear of Tom passing, He was always looking out for us neighborhood kids. There was always a good game of street football going on with Tom. He started racing stock cars with his brother John and was quite a good member of the Eagles 347. I use to go to the club on Thrusdays and there would be Tom back from playing golf. He was an outstanding man and had many many friends I know of. RIP my friend.
