  • Sorry to learn of Tommy passing. I got to know him at Mansfield Memorial Homes when I spent 3 months in rehab there. We had a lot of fun together, he was special, and could he ornery.He loved OSU football. He played bingo when he was on good behaviour! A smiling face, with a song, greeted all who passed! God speed Tommy, you are home now, RIP.

  • I am truly sadden by Tommy’s death. From kindergarten at the original old North school to early adulthood I counted Tommy as my friend. I have countless memories of so many good childhood times with Tommy, I know I will miss him.
