Tommy was charming, caring, and someone who all his friends looked up to even though he was much smaller than they were. “He was very protective of me, his big sister and his niece. He was adamant about protecting people and would stand-up for anyone in trouble. Momma misses her baby,” recalled his mother Sharon.

He loved to work on as well as ride his motorcycles and had an amazing smile. He was so special to so many people in his life. If anyone ever needed help with something he was always there to help in whatever way he could no matter the time of day or night. His love will never be forgotten.
