Fenton Family. I want to express my sincere sympathy for the passing of Tommy. I remember the times that my sister Julia and I were at your house on Mill Street playing in the back yard and in the sandbox with Janie, Tommy and Susie. He was always fun and had a big smile all the time. And the wonderful times we got to swim at Shields Park and make those memories we will never forget. It sounds as if he had a great life and you all were blessed to have been part of it. May God be with you and your family. My love, Sarah (Amos) Bloch

Cheryl and family, I am very sorry for your loss. Tom was an engaging and lovable guy and I always enjoyed stopping by his lot sometimes to catch up. I bought a car from him once that served me very well, and he was a pleasure to work with when we made that sale. Prayers to you all during this time.

Cheryl & family—it was 5 years ago that I met Tom at KSAA. I looked forward to seeing him each Thursday. We would talk about Your retirement from teaching (I’m a retired teacher), your Boston terriers (the loss of one and the stinky new puppy) & of course everything IU. I will miss his joyful demeanor. Hugs for comfort & prayers for strength.
Beth White left a message on June 16, 2020:
Cheryl and family. Prayers to you all in the passing of Tom. He was a great man. My father Charles Patrick worked for his uncle Shy. When I was a teenager, we went to Tom for a used car. For whatever reason, mom and dad took the car for a short test drive and left me at the dealership. While Tom and I talked while they were gone, I told him that my mom would try to get him to come down on the price. Something I'm sure he was prepared for. But I kind of got into a little trouble for being so honest with him. He of course got a chuckle out of it. I have been in contact with many people who have said Tom helped them, some said saved their life. He will be greatly missed. Beth Patrick White

Cheryl and family, I am so sorry to hear about Tom’s passing. I don’t think Tom knew a stranger. The few times that I spoke to him, it was like talking to someone I had known my whole life. I’m sure he will be missed by many. Prayers for your family.:heart:
