I just learned of Tom’s death, to the family, I am so sorry for your loss. It’s hard for me in a few words to share how much Tom affected my life. He was hard on me at work, always expecting excellence, no nonsense. My work ethic, and how I run my business, came directly from Tom. And in the darkest hour of my life, Toms heart was revealed to me, he told he would do everything he could to help me get through my battle with my addiction to alcohol. I will miss you Tom, your legacy, will live on with me.

I have many fond memories of Tom like the time he saw me fall out of a boat during an early spring tournament, bringing me warm, dry clothes. I remember the time he insisted I join him ice fishing at McNalleys promising I'd be warm. And I'll always remember our trips to Lake Zumbro to take a little money from the Rochester club members. Being with Tom was an absolute joy for me.
