I worked with Tom many years at PPG, and he was like our 'Google' way before smart phones were out, because if you wanted to know something you just asked Tom.Very intelligent man who knew about everything. Rest in peace Tom.

To Tom's family:  I was a co-worker of Tom's at PPG.  Quite often we'd run into Tom at the Carlisle WalMart.  He'd be sitting there (or walking around in the store) waiting on the time his movie would be starting at the nearby theater.  We enjoyed chatting with him.  We're really sorry to hear of his passing.  He was quite a likable person and interesting to talk to.  Our prayers are with you all. Carl and Kathy
