I was saddened to hear about Toms passing . I worked with Tom for a few years at Goulet Supply ( now Granite Group ) in the commercial department. He was a mentor to me during that time and I adhere to many of the valuable lessons he took the time to share with me. I admired his devotion to family, his sense of humor and concerned nature. I hope he abides in the clearing at the end of the path with a light heart and joyful memories.

Sad to hear of Tom's passing. Some of my most enjoyable years were at FW Webb in Portland with Tom, Dave Buber, Russ Berg and Mark Kuntz.
I remember Tom and I went to see Paul McCartney when he played in Worcester Mass back in 1998-- was a very good night ! Rest easy, friend. You are in GOD's house now, and there is no better place to be.
Rest east Shue.
