  • I love you so much grandpa!

  • We will all miss Tom. I have many good memories of time spent together during the years that we were both in the scouting program together. We were classmates at Gilbert High School. Tom stood out as a track athlete.
    Condolences to his family.

  • Mike and Teresa Conquest

    We are so sorry his time here has passed. He was deeply loved by his family. His son Tom and grandsons Colton and Aedan carry on his legacy.

  • William Segard

    Tom made my life so much better at GM-DPG and else where. In the 60 yrs I have lived in AZ I have known him or his family businesses even before my start at DPG. He has been one kind sir and has vastly increased my knowledge of IT which I have been involved with most of my life. He helped that knowledge be so much deeper and enjoyable!
