My condolences to the Fink family. Tom was a great childhood and school friend. Seemed like I was in the Fink house more than in mine back then. Nothing but positive memories of Tom. Tom made a special trip to my brother’s calling hours 6 years ago, very classy and kind. It was good to see him again and to catch up.

Tom was one of the best friends anyone could possibly want.. He was kind, respectful,strong, caring and had a heart of gold.. My fondest memory was years ago when he, Dennis and myself would play pinball at Kipps bar for hours & hours. Every time he would visit, he would constantly be petting my dog… Loved him for that! Rest in peace dear friend…You will surely be missed.
