Tom and Mary Lou took me in for all the holidays like I was their own daughter, in college, when I didn’t have any family. Those memories are ones that I truly cherish. I have especially fond memories of Tom’s light hearted jokes and carefree humor. He had this smirk on his face after he would make a joke and it’s how I remember him. He instilled really great values in his daughters who have added much value to my life in friendship. Tom will be remembered and missed every day, watching over his girls forever .

Words can not express how sorry we are for your loss. Tom will be missed by all. Prayers and hugs for all of you.

Tom’s kindness, decency, work ethic, sense of humor, and love of family will live on in his three amazing daughters and his wonderful, inspiringly strong wife.

I was so very saddened to hear of Tom’s sudden passing. I have more than a few memories of him from high school and beyond. To Tom’s immediate and extended family I offer my sincere condolences and prayers.

Tom was one my most favorite characters that I ever had the privilege of working with. A great family man! My deepest condolences to all of Tom’s family.

Many prayers to the family. What a great man who has a beautiful family. An angel in heaven watching over you.

Rachel I am so sorry to hear of your Dad’s passing, he sounds like he was a wonderful man and a good dad and I know you have many sweet memories of times together. I pray you will feel the peace that only God can give you at this time

I’m soo saddened to hear this news, Tom was one the kindest people I knew. Many memories of all his outstanding basketball playing during our time at O’Hara. This was just a small part of his time he share with us but I’ll always remember him. My prayers to his family. Rest In Peace, Tom.??

Deepest sympathies to all of the family. You are in our thoughts and prayers.

I’m so sorry for your family’s loss. My husband works at Honeywell and passed along the news. I remember your daughters from their days at LSHS, and your family was such a pleasure to work with. I know Tom will be missed.

I worked with Tom here at KCP and what a hard, dedicated worker and I enjoyed the years while Tom was here. A more personal note and story:

Tom found out in conversation that I took a softball off the bare chin while catching my daughter practicing her pitching in the front yard. He said nothing that day but showed up on my front door step that evening with his catching gear from when his daughters played softball and offer it to me to keep and wanted nothing for it; just my enjoyment and protection from the next wild pitch.

This world is going to miss you, Tom. God’s comfort to the Dworak family in this time of suffering.

Dear Mary Lou, Megan, Lena and Rachel. I am so sorry to hear of Tom’s passing. You and all your families are in my thoughts and prayers.
Love, Judy Lohman

I worked with Tom for many years. He would work the shirt off his back. I am very sad to hear of his passing and express my deepest condolences, here, to his family.

I worked with Tom back in TSD at Heneywell/Bendix. He was such a great guy. A great and smart engineer. My prayers and thoughts are with your family for your loss.

Dang, hate to hear of Tom’s passing. My nemesis on the basketball court during our Bendix days. Mr. Inside-Outdide. A genuinely nice guy. RIP my friend. – Hop

Tom will be missed greatly! Ornery as heck but sweet as could be! Over the 22 years I knew him he gave countless words of advice. He told many stories of his girls with a certain look on his eyes that told how much he truly loved and cherished all 4 of his girls! I am so sorry and was shocked when I found out today! My heart is heavy and my prayers are filled with all of you!!!! Love, Hillary❤️

Very saddened to hear of Tom’s passing. I was in high school with Tom at Bishop O’Hara. What a superb athlete and, a sincere, fun and blessed soul. Very good man indeed.
Rest in peace dear friend.
