Tom served on the Fillmore Board of Education as both a member and President of the Board of Education for more than 14 years. The district benefited from his leadership, decision making and common sense approach. I will remember Tom as being a strong advocate for our students. Tom always put students first. We miss him. I will keep Tom's family in my prayers as they experience this difficult time.

Our heartfelt thoughts coming to you and the family, Kathy. There are no words that can diminish your grief, but know that you are loved and so was Tom. We will miss him (especially on his boat charters around the pond!). Good times and a great man! Be comforted knowing that he is at peace and suffering no more.

All the best,
~Rod and Louise
