Thomas was one of the most patient and kind people I've ever had the pleasure of knowing. I'll always remember playing pool and ping pong with him and Wade, and Thomas always winning.

Thomas made the best popcorn in the world. He had an infectious laugh that he passed down to both of his children, and one of the kindest people I have ever know. The world is short one truly unique and amazing individual. All the memories I\'ll cherish forever.

Thomas and I became friends in 2012 through our workplace. To his son, daughter, and siblings, I can say, you could not have been more loved by a father or brother. I am so sorry for your loss and may God grant you comfort and peace.
