As the Batavia Kroger Grocery Manager he made countless deliveries to many elderly residents of Batavia, helped with burned victims of the Auxier gas explosion and gave his time and donations to the Batavia Local Schools & Athletics. He loved and adored his Grandsons Zach and Derek and attended every school and sporting event up to the time he could no longer attend due to his declining health. He was also a long time member of the Batavia Board of Public Affairs and received the Key to the Village of Batavia. All that knew Tom knew him as a silly, kind soul and a friend to all.

So sorry for your loss. Your dad was always willing to take the time to say hi and chat whenever he saw me. He will be missed.

I will always fondly remember seeing Tom at the old Batavia Kroger store when I was a child. Rest in sweet heavenly peace, Tom. God bless you.

Having met Tom when he and Katie started dating I have lots of great memories. My favorite was watching him sit with a knife waiting for a mole to move in his yard. My sincere sympathy goes to his family. Tom was one of the best!

What I will always remember about Tom is how he went all out for Halloween. How he used the “display” Keebler as a haunted house. Either he or someone else would hide in it and startle the Trick of Treaters when they came on the porch. Classic Tom!
What a splendid life, enjoying many years of retirement. You have earned your reward, rest in the arms of those who love you. Godspeed my friend.
