I first met Tom in the summer of “59” at Tarleton State. “We were Plowboys," teammates on the football team. I will never forget his friendly nature and even disposition. Our friendship developed and endured . I always looked forward to our Plowboy brand of soiree in Llano. Tom was #33 in the program and will always be # 1 in our hearts. It’s with deep sadness that I bid Tom farewell. A stand up man and good friend. Bill McGonagle.

Tommy was the kind of man which comforted you just with his presence. He met you with warmth and left you with a smile. A compassionate listener and a great storyteller, Tommy was easy to talk to and easy to listen and learn from. Not that he had any idea he was teaching you something, it was just his inner goodness which was so entrancing. Formed from a loving family who never shared a cross word between them to the Tarleton University Football Team. One day at Tarleton a sports car convertible caught his eye driving by, Tommy said at that moment he thought, "Nice car." When Joyce McGee stepped out of it the next 57 years began. From loving son, brother, husband, father, grandfather to well loved friends his became a life well lived steeped in legend.

Tommy was always there for the joy and the heartache, for those who could and those who couldn't. Where there was desolation he brought hope, for those who had nothing he gave of himself to give them something. He always brought hope to the moment, a plan to move forward, a loving voice, a warm hug to hold you steady when all around you was falling to pieces. It was just not for his family but for his community and strangers along the way. He was the model of Man you hoped to be, the man you loved with traits you hoped your children would have.

We can't fathom a future without Tommy in it, so we'll believe he has traveled ahead to set up camp for us. Until then there will be a new star in the night sky, one whose light shines ever so brighter than all the others.

Love you Babe, Jackie and David
