So sorry to learn of Tom's passing. For more than 20 years my wife Joyce and I depended upon Tom to keep our furnace running and our home heated and he never let us down. Hunkered down on an overturned bucket in our cellar Tom would spin tales and share stories as he skillfully repaired whatever bit or piece was malfunctioning. As we both owned Ellis 20 skiffs Tom and I also swapped tricks of the boat maintainence trade and he turned me on to beaching my boat on a crab (strong sawhorse) for changing the oil and gearbox fluids. A friend built me a copy of Tom's crab 15 years ago and I am still using it to this day. From now on while waiting for the oil to drain I will always think of Tom, the great storyteller, who always arrived and departed with a smile on his face and never failed to extend a helping hand.

I'm so sorry to hear this sad news. I was a client of his for many years and a friend as well. It was always a bright spot in my day if out paths happened to cross. Once he thought he had left a tool at my house and we got so engrossed in our conversation we almost forgot to go look for it. He was stalwart in all weathers and all situations, full of humor and good will, reliable and honest, wise and knowing. Altogether a splendid human being. My heartfelt condolences to Mrs. B and his many loved ones.
