Jerry & Kim Morgan


Tia and family and Tom's parents: So sorry for your loss you all are in our thoughts and prayers. Tom was funny, happy go lucky wonderful person and a really good friend that will be deeply missed. We all had some good times together and a lot of good memories that will never be forgotten. R.I.P Tom and the memories will live on. Never thought in a million years that we would be having to go though something like this with someone so young but the good Lord had a calling for Tom to watch over us. He is up in heaven having a good talk with the two wonderful Mary's. If there is anything we can do for you and your families please let us know.

I worked with Tom numerous times thru his job. Also rode with him several times, mostly the annual Mike Kutz ride. Tom was great to work with, very patient. He was awesome to ride with. Looked forward to seeing him each year. We also had an old time connection from his family growing up in the Fedora area. He will be missed, but I have great memories of him. My Condolences, Rick Morris

So sad to hear of my friend Thomas passing away. Ive know the Van Pelts all my life as Karl and Gertie and family were my neighbors here at the farm south of Fedora. I always enjoyed visiting with Thomas and sharing a few jokes and laughs and having a cold beer with him and our other friend Byron. Oh the memories will last forever and Sturgis just wont be the same without you my friend. God has you now so you can watch over us. Till we meet again. My hearfelt sympathy and prayers goes out to his family. RIP Thomas

Tia and family. No one will ever be held to the standards that Tom held for himself. I first worked with Tom at Vantage Point and then SDN. Many memories will were made and cherished by all who knew Tom. Tt didnt matter the event or where you were with Tom, he made sure that it would never be forgotten. Hold tight and cherish everyone of them. Its never good bye but until we meet again!
