    Tom, you were one in a hundred million. I wish you had written a book about your amazing life. You made me laugh, you made me cry, you did so much for me, you hurt me deeply. You made me proud, you made me angry, but you know what? I wouldn't have traded you for the world. Thanks for building me a new porch, for getting me to the ER when I sliced open my fingers (faster than any ambulance would've!), for helping me move (more than once), for being there when I really needed you, for burying my kitty Ben (I saw you tear up as you were digging the hole), for being the first person outside the delivery room to see my triplets, and for holding me after my Logan died. Thanks for babysitting when we went to Hawaii, for all the rides on your motorcycles & in your cool cars, and for everything I've probably forgotten. You've left me with many great (and a few not so great) memories. I love you very much and will truly miss you. I will try very hard to keep the promise I made to you in

    Dear Tom...how saddened we are to learn that we would not see you at our 40th Blessed Sacrament Reunion on Aug. 25th. We went to the last one in your Corvette! What fun! You were missed and we all send our thoughts and prayers to your family, and our faith reminds us that you will rest in peace. From your classmates at B.S.S. Jeanie and all the Trimpe family.

    You were definitely one of a kind! Sure will miss hearing the sounds of the dune buggy racing through the open fields here and the bull sh## stories you fed us! Then again they were probably all true! You led such an incredible life and seen more than one person could have even imagined. So sorry it was cut short so soon. Say hi to your Mom.......I know she was waiting at the pearly gates for your arrival. Our prayers to the loved ones left behind. We will see you up there and walk the golden streets again. Always, Liz n Jeff

    There was never a dull moment when Tom was around. Always wanting to have a good time and good times he/we did have, from riding motorcycles to shooting guns and what ever else fell in between. Tom was always wanting to have a good time.I always said, if you called Tom in the middle of the night and said you needed assistance, you could count on him being there to help "always" he was a true friend. He will be greatly missed by the people who's lives he had touched. "TOM WAS A LEGEND"

    To Tom, my brother, Yes, Tommy, brother—though not by blood—you are truly my brother. You had a quality that cannot be easily described other than you drew people to you, both young and old alike. Like any brothers, we had our differences but those never separated our love for each other. These are qualities I admire about you: the caring for others no matter what the risk to yourself; when you believed in something you threw your full support into it; and lastly, you lived each day to its fullest. I knew of your difficult times and my heart ached each time and wished and prayed for them to pass. Tommy, my loving brother, be at peace. John

    Dear Tommy, Thanks for showing us all to live life to it's fullest, with a smile on your face, even if life throws some curves at ya. I'll miss you, truly I will. Ya know this world isn't made for special souls like you, that's why the Good Lord takes you to heaven in his timing. Probably cause God has twice as much for you to do heaven, than you ever had on this earth. I'm sure you all are celebrating with Jesus and all our loved ones in heaven when you arrived. I believe that in my heart. You have been a good example to us all. I love you. Kisses and Hugs to all of you in heaven. Love ya, Margaret

    Dad, we’re sorry about the pain you have after losing a child, especially your only son. We know he could be quite the migraine headache at times. Please try and remember all the times he was so thoughtful and helpful, making you proud by what he did. In his heart of hearts he really was a very good and compassionate person, emulating you and extremely proud of his Dad. I watched this as I grew up with him, seeing him trying to help you do things, learning along the way. Kathy, we know he could be a huge headache for you, too, but he did give you two beautiful children in Nathan and Kristy. They, in turn, have beautiful families of their own. Tom was so proud of Nathan’s and Kristy’s accomplishments. He also worried over their health issues. And the grandbabies! He was as proud as a peacock when he saw Sydney for the first time, and the first time he saw Evan and Seth. We know “the kids” (they’ll always be kids to us) miss their Dad terribly. Theresa, we’re sorry that just when thing

    Theresa, we’re sorry that just when things seemed like they may be straightening out, that inevitable old shoe dropped. Growing up, you were one of the few girls on our street who would rather play “army men” with the boys than “dolls” with the girls—and the guys let you because Tom said it was OK. You and Tom were inseparable. People always thought the two of you were twins. You did everything together. He was proud of your children, too. Whenever we talked he would ask how Joe and Erica were doing. We know you are hurting as bad as I am, if not worse because you not only lost your big brother, you lost one of your best friends. Jennifer, losing your big brother cannot be an easy place to be. We’re sorry that you, too, are hurting. Tom used to tease the heck out of you, but if anyone ever tried to hurt you, he would let them know that they should never try it again. By the time you were big enough to remember, the army men were being replaced with model cars, boats, planes, tanks, e

    By the time you were big enough to remember, the army men were being replaced with model cars, boats, planes, tanks, etc. He was so worried when you were having all the problems during your pregnancy, and he was one of the first to see Logan, Nicholas, and Caroline and couldn’t believe how tiny they were. We know your entire family misses your big brother, -in-law, and Uncle Tom. Debbie, thank you for caring for him for the past three years. We know your heart must be breaking, and that you miss him so much. Even though Demitri wasn’t his by blood, he felt as much a grandpa to him as he did to Nathan’s and Kristy’s children. He always spoke of his grandson before the twins were born and would confuse us because we didn’t know who he was talking about at first. After explanations we finally got it and he no longer had to correct us when we counted grandkids (except when I went brain-dead after Tom passed away). He was so looking forward to seeing Heather’s new baby. We know she and Jos

    We know she and Josh looked on him almost like both a dad and a friend. We know your Mom looked on him as another son and is going to miss “matching up” with him. We know you will always miss him, and know we are truly sorry for your loss. Little Brother, we would have some hum-dinger fights, but let anyone try to harm either one of us and the other was at their defense. We’ve bloodied more than one nose defending each other. Maybe Mom and Dad knew something all those Christmases ago when they bought you that huge RC tank. You made me proud when I heard what you had done, and I hurt every time you did—more than you will ever know. I didn’t know how proud you were of me when you saw me working in NICU with the preemies. Thank you. We know how much you hurt when Mom died but would never show it where anyone could see. Tom, we miss you more than words can say. We’re only glad you’re out of all of your pain. Tom’s friends, there is no way we can name all of you. You know who you are. Yo

    You are the people who he enjoyed being with and who enjoyed being with him. We know there was never a dull moment when Tom was around. We have never seen someone live life so close to the edge and with so much vigor. He lived every day as if it were his last day on earth. We think there is a message in there somewhere. We all know Tom was no saint. At the same time, he would give you the shirt off his back if you needed it and risk his life to save yours. Please remember the good that Tom carried in him and pay it forward. Let that be his legacy. Be at peace, little brother. We love you. Sue and John
