Great Guy to work with always lots of fun, I use to run the same 50 Ton Motor he ran, he worked day shift and I worked midnight, Tom was Loud and Robust, he was always joking or telling us how he was going to kick our butts, than I found out he was afraid of everything, spiders, snakes and other bugs. So I started leaving him little surprises of plastic spiders and bugs hanging from fishing line in the Motor, I can hear him now yelling Swiger I am going to Kill You as he would be taking a load of coal cars into the mine, lost of great memories of him, I feel Honored to have had our lives cross paths in this world.
