Tom was truly a great Railroad Man. I worked for Tom and worked with Tom for many years. He was a great family man. He was very proud of his family! Tom and his Brother Pat were a great team. It was a great honor to know and work with both of them. DJM

Anyone who worked on the Chicago & North Western with Tom, as I did in the 1970 and 1980's will remember his stories, jokes and unfailing good humor and that he was a good railroader. I can't think of a higher tribute.

Best wishes to Sue and the "kids"..

Tom missed his calling as a natural comedian. Very effective and impressive transportation officer on the Twin Cities Division who managed to keep the rest of us "loose" in some very trying times, all the while keeping his number one priority in order, that being his wonderful family. Tom was truly one of a kind.
