    Connie & Family,
    I am proud to have known Tom, played football on FHS “Nighthawks” with him and in later years played golf with him. A true pillar of the Frankfort and Clinton County community, he will long be remembered as true Christian man who led by his example far beyond his Farmer’s Bank area of responsibility. I will be with you in Thought & Prayer – especially on the 18th as you celebrate his full life.
    Blessings, Chuck

    Connie & Family, so sorry for your loss. I worked at Peoples-Home Life Ins. and thought a lot of Tom. If I remember right, Tom drove one of the station wagons we leased to get to work in Indianapolis. Jim Salmon drove our station wagon.

    I am sorry to see in the Indianapolis Star the passing of Tom as I have fond memories of him when we worked together in Underwriting at Peoples Home Life. Tom left Peoples in approximately 1964 and joined the Framers Bank while I left in 1965 to join another life insurance company. Tom was well respected and Peoples was sorry to see him leave.

    What an amazing man Tom was, Connie. Please know that you are in the hearts and prayers of the many who love you.

    Dear Connie and Family, So sorry to hear of Tom’s passing on. We grew up together, just a block apart on Williams Street. Buck moved the family to Wabash St. and I recall many football games in their yard. Tom was a first class fellow. Carol and I wish you all the best. God Bless you and yours.

    Connie and Family,
    The many years I worked with Tom in the Trust Department at The Farmers Bank, I came to appreciate the kind of person he was. He was a kind, patient, intelligent, a true leader and a real family man. He and I had many years of fun and fellowship in the work place along with the other employees and I am so sorry to hear of his death, My prayers are with you and your family.
