Mary Kay, Kim, and Tom

I have to say Tom was one of the nicest guys ever on the face of this earth. He had that deep voice and HUGE smile. He always helped me out when I was young and had to get the car fixed before taking it home to my Dad. Tom was a guy you could sit at the Ranch with AND Mary Kay and just talk about life. I have to tell Mary Kay, Kim, and Tom they had an AWESOME Dad and he will be missed by a lot of people.... Our prayers go out to you and your entire family.

You were like a big brother to me! Then an amazing Uncle! Uncle Tom was always there when we needed him! He made one delicious turkey for our Weinzierl get together! Will miss him always!
