Memories Timeline


  1. My deepest condolences to you, Alex, and Tom’s family. My heart is breaking for all of you. Please feel my hug at this very difficult time. Much love, Donna Riegner

  2. A true gentleman and honest and trustworthy human being and attorney. A quiet individual, Tom had a dry sense of humor. I never saw him lose his temper or get angry. Liked by everyone. I retained him many times during my employment with Global Aerospace. Truly a sad day for his family and everyone in the aviation world. One of the real good guys. Cleared for takeoff Tom, we will all meet you above eventually.
