I first met Tom in Junior High School at Fort Osage. We were in Mr. Weekly’s World History class. Tom was the ultimate athlete. He was a three-sport letterman and State Championing Hurdler. Tom was a friend and fun to hang out with. Many a Friday night Dale Miller, Tom, Grant James, and I would drive around having fun.
Several years ago, Tom and Phil Gibson thought it would be a good idea to get the guys together and form the Raider Hater group. Thank goodness they did. It’s become a tradition for us. Tom was also up for a political argument, and I must admit I agreed with him about 98% of the time. I will miss him.

My name is Raymond Jeffries. I am another high school friend from the "Raider Haters". I knew Tom since early days and was blessed to rekindle that friendship after many years. When I think of Tom now my mind goes back to an event several years ago. If it was a made for tv movie it would probably be called the "Waller in the Holler". The Raider Haters had an event at one of the members home at Lake of the Ozarks. Many were in attendance and many lies were told. Having fellowshipped late into the night it was clear all were extremely tired. Did I mention that adult beverages help loosen the tongues of many. After hours of stories we decided to retire for the night. Sleeping situations were arranged and off we went. I had driven my motorhome down and Tom secured a spot on my fold out couch. Both of us were were tired. Well we are both early risers and in our haste to get to sleep neither of us had thought to turn the heat on. We both awaken the next morning to what felt like frost inside the camper. True story. I will never forget.
I want this family to know that Tom is loved and will be sorely missed by many. When I think of Tom I remember him as a Gentle Giant. A man of few words until words were needed. He had a little korny sense of humor at times to those he called friends. I want to thank Tom for being a part of my life. Until we meet again my friend. May God bless, and comfort, those left behind.
