  6. Kathy, Jim & Family,
    We are so sorry for your loss. Uncle Tom was a great Uncle! I will treasure the memories of hunting in the Fox Creek area and family camping trips when I was much younger. One of my fondest memories is when Uncle Tom would say “Bob, this is your lesson of the day”. Please know that we share in your grief and Uncle Tom will be missed.
    Bob and Donna
