Town of Knox best wing driver on the snowplow, Altamont Fair could not have taken place without Tom's presence and help. A very boisterous, thoughtful and helpful person, with a booming voice and laugh; you knew Tom was in the house. May God accept Tom through the gates of heaven free of pain, and who knows until we get there, there maybe a new snowplow waiting for Tom. Rest in peace, you were a very humble and giving individual. Our best in your new journey, Lynn and Linda
