Alan, Sandy, Matt, Sam, Mary and families, we are sorry for the loss of your dad. I have many great memories of him and will miss him dearly. He loved his family and was very faithful to the church. When I would go to the early morning mass on Sunday's at St. Ignatius I would always try to sit next to him. Your dad use to dress up as Santa Claus for me and my brothers when we were very young. Also he would always tease me when I was older that he didn't like visiting our house because I would punch him in the stomach when he opened the door. We love you Uncle Tom. May you rest in peace and be with your family in heaven.
Love Phil & Connie Impink

We are so very sorry for the loss of your dad. Tom was like my brother and yet he was my uncle. Tom mentored me through my young adult life. He was the one who gave me away in marriage and I will be forever grateful. We have so many good memories to look back on and they will always remain in my heart. He was a very loving and caring man and showed that to his kids and grandkids. We love you Tom and you will never be forgotten. Until we meet again, may you rest in peace in the arms of our Lord.
