Tom was kind, knowledgeable, and good to others.
He wanted nothing more than to get back to "his island" and enjoy the end of the day.

He amazed me with his in depth knowledge of loons and their habitat. So much, that he built homes for them!

Tom and I spent a number of mornings talking about the stone piles he crushed and where he would place his new asphalt plant.

Most memorable was when he came to Brown Bay with some Grindstone Wines!
