Tom was killed in Viet Nam April 10, 1969.  He left behind his wife, Vicki and newborn babygirl, Amy, parents, brothers and sister.  It was my honor to escort Tom home for his burial at Calvary cemetary, Mankato.  To this day he is deeply  missed by his family and friends. Often talked about in conversations when the gang gets together. Vicki later married Steve Byers and resides in S.C.  Amy lives in Mankato, has a son and 2 daughters.

I still remember listening to Johnny Mathis records at my parents' home and my dad walking in unexpectedly catching us "making out" on the couch.  Tom was cool...handled my dad great!  He had a gentle spirit and I'm sure he's missed by many.
