    Dave and I are still in shock. We remember going camping with your family and the Schultz family at Sturgeon Bag when all our kids were young. Such wonderful memories. Tom absolutely loved the outdoors, especially fishing. His music is legendary! Playing mostly at TJ’s on Saturday nights back when we all partied and had a good old-fashioned time. Tom will be greatly missed. God now has two exceptional Angels, one on each side. May God Bless you, our dear, dear friend.

      We have to add to our earlier post as we know there wasn’t a “fishing hole” within a 50 mile radius of wherever Tom was that he didn’t know the best place to fish on that lake/river to catch big fish or on occasion tell some whopper fish stories. We will truly miss all your fishing knowledge.
