  • Connie and family,
    My sincere condolences on Tom’s passing. I worked with Tom when he was a dispatcher and later a road deputy at the sheriff’s office. We rode together many nights when we were short cruisers. He took his job very seriously. There were also times his sense of humor would come out. Some people didn’t realize it, Tom had a very soft heart.

    May the Great Architect of the Universe watch over him in the Celestial Lodge.
    So Mote It Be.

  • Dear Connie, Howard and Candy, and the Entire Workman Family, You have all fought the valiant fight for Tom and now he is at peace. We are sending you our deepest sympathy. We remember with fondness when Tom came to our house and was practicing the dispatcher’s “A-Alpha, B-Boy, etc.” He was so conscientious about his job and serving his community. May it help to know that you all have friends who care, and we share in your loss. Sincerely, Susan and Dick Huggins/Fredericktown

  • Connie, We were so saddened by the report of your husband passing. Many days and evenings spent with you both and your kids on the ball fields. Remember you are not alone, you have many friends and family that love you and your children and would be willing to help in any way we can.

  • Dear Workman Family,

    I am very sorry for your loss. I fondly remember our days and the fun we used to have at the Knox County Fair in 4H and at the horse barns. Tommy was always in there with the rest of us even though he was a little younger and he had such a warm and fun smile.

    Years later I would see him at the fair in uniform but he was still friendly and the smile was still there. He will be missed.



  • Dearest Connie & Workman Family, Please accept our deepest condolences on the loss of your father & husband we were so saddened to read about his passing. Please know that our thoughts & prayers our with you during this difficult time and know that we are always here for you.

    Your friends,
