Crystal my condolences, please know that he live through us and all the people he impacted over his life. He was a great mentor, a great friend, a one in a billion human being. He will live with me in my heart and memory.

I am deeply saddened to hear about the passing of Tom. I had the honor of attending Paramedic School with Tom, where his dedication and passion were evident from the start.

When Tom joined the Lee’s Summit Fire Department, we worked together on B Shift at Company 3, alongside John Caswell, Jim Eden, and Tom Simonin. During our time together, we created many cherished memories, both professionally and personally. Tom’s camaraderie, professionalism, and unwavering commitment made him an invaluable colleague and a great friend.

Tom’s impact on our department and the community is profound, and he will be greatly missed. Please accept my heartfelt condolences during this difficult time. His legacy will live on through the countless lives he touched.
