“ Tom, or " Big E " as he was so affectionally known by to many of us growing up with him in Eureka Nevada was a gentle giant. It was such a tremendous honor and privilege to play along side Tom in every sport as we were growing up in Eureka. I will never forget his amazing calmness and demeanor for a man of such incredible size and strength. His love of the Raiders and passion for everything silver/black will be something i will never forget. Although he was taken from us way before his time, as i know that the Lord will have an immensely large ANGEL sitting next to him, at the right hand of his thrown, forever more. ”
