I have know Tommy since he joined the Fire Department. It would be difficult to find a better person. Dedicated to his family and his community, always helpful. He fought the good fight and will be missed by all that knew him. Rest in Peace, May the Lord help and protect his family. "If we never forget, he will always be with us"
