Thought, prayers and wonderful memories of Tom’s kindness, and gentle spirit. He was a true friend to those he knew. He was there for me at a time I needed friends when my father passed. Thanks for the memories and the good times!
I worked with Tom at the Sandusky Register and no one tried harder or worked harder than Tom Wolfe. He showed up with a smile ever day and was a friend to all. I know of Tom’s struggles and it hurts my heart that he died this way. I offer my condolences to his family, particularly his daughter who had Tom’s complete love. He was so proud of her.
In 1979, Tom Wolfe came into my life. He was my coworker at the Sandusky Register. Tom was suffering some physical challenges; and, I some emotional ones. We quickly bonded as friends… a frienship that was truly a blessing. Rest in peace, my friend, until we meet again.
Really sorry to hear of Toms passing. He always had a kind word and a warm greeting each time I ran into him. His stories were spot on and it was always good to see him at games. He was one of the kindest people and I am humbled to have crossed paths with him. Until we meet again Tom, rest in peace!
I will always remember Tom announcing the softball games at the Willard Park. Throughout the years, I never once heard him complain about his pain or disability. I sincerely hope he is a better place!
We are keeping all of Tom’s family in our thoughts and prayers. Tom was a wonderful, positive, kind man. He was very special to many of us. He and Stacey touched so many lives in such positive ways. They loved coming to my 1st grade classroom and reading with my little friends. They made every child in my class feel so special. I will never forget the sweet, unconditional loved they shared with all of us. I am sure they are dancing together in heaven. Much love, The Andy Thornton family
OUR PRAYER TO YOU AND YOUR FAMILY
We are sorry to hear of Tom’s passing! He was truly a Willard Flashes Fan, not to mention a true gentlemen! I will miss seeing Tom after the basketball games, when he’d stop by the scorer’s table to double check his data, before submitting his account of the game! GOD Bless him! Doug & Jody Baker
Tommy was a classmate of mine and a very special friend over all of these years. I was so saddened to hear about his passing. I know in my heart that Tommy was welcomed into heaven with OUR DEAR LORD holding out HIS HANDS and saying to Tommy, “Come my faithful servant and join ME and all of your loved ones in MY HEAVENLY KINGDOM” No more pain or hardships just pure joy and happiness for Tommy now. I will miss my special friend and he will be missed by a lot of people. Another angel has got HIS wings. Fly free Tommy!
