  • Tom was a very good friend of whom I called Brother. If you were a good person Tom would help, assist or pretty much give you the shirt off his back. The last 15 years I have known him and seen him work hard in his career and seen him help others. His life experiences brought him wisdom as he chose who he thought was worth the precious time we have and who was not. We all have a lot to learn in that respect and Tom reminded me of that fact. I won’t forget him and encourage those that were fortunate to consider Brother to remember him often until we meet him again.

    Tom was my uncle and friend. He always showed me tough love even if I didn’t want to hear it, I know he meant well though. I will miss his smart aleck comments and wise comments about life. He will be missed but never forgotten. We love you.

  • Tom you are and always will be my big brother. From the time I was born you have always been there for me and been there with me. Letting me share your dog big boy. Letting me learn to write a two-wheel bike in the driveway on willetta street when you didn’t want me to ride your bike. From letting me tag along with you to Nelson’s pool when it probably wasn’t cool to have your baby sister tagging along. For all the great times we shared together at our grandma and grandpa Bean’s house in Springdale Utah. Again letting me tag along when Grandpa would take you to the dump to shoot squirrels and jack rabbits with the 22. And in 2016 when our dad passed away you were there for me when I said I hope that he wouldn’t be forgotten you said he never will. Taking me to and from my surgeries. Just knowing I could talk to you anytime if I needed someone to talk to. You might crumble you might get mad but you got over it and would always say sorry I was grumbly what can I help you with. And I wonder who’s going to try to get me upset by saying the golden knights are going to lose.. but most of all I just want to say thank you for being you . I will miss you everyday for the rest of my life. Till we meet again on the other side just know that I love you. RIP TOMMY RIP. Love always your sister Sue.
