I worked with Tom for many years on numerous projects at Raytheon/E-Systems. Tom always had a smile on his face no matter how difficult the project or how hard the deadline. He was a whiz on the Mac, a terrific illustrator, and a font of knowledge on all things air and space. He was a terrific asset to the creative team at Raytheon, but more than that, an inspiration to all of us. Godspeed, Tom!

Tom leaves a legacy of determination, enthusiasm, many passions and accomplishments, great work ethic, unselfishness, intelligence, grit and kindness. He made everyone he met a better person. I knew him from the day he first stepped through the doors of E-Systems...a talented artist with the calculating mind of an engineer. Such fortitude. He refused to be coddled and treated any differently which we all admired. "I can only imagine" him now!

Fly on, Tommy!

I will never forget working with Tom on numerous projects over the years. He was unfailing cheerful and undaunted by any task no matter how complex or detailed it happened to be. It was a genuine pleasure to know him and to work with him. I can only imagine how much he will be missed by his family. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.

Tom was one of the best friends I've ever had. We met about 30 years ago in a computer illustration class. His kindness, intelligence and wit made him so much fun to be around. I will always be inspired by his zest for life! Love you, Tom! And many thanks to his parents and siblings for being such a wonderfully loving family. Sending you all my love.
