Tom was a wonderful friend especially to my parents Bob and JoAnn Deaton. They lived next door to each other for years. Tom told me that daddy was the first person he met when he moved to Clifton Forge and their friendship grew from there. Rest In Peace Tom. You made the world a better place. Prayers for the family.

David(Boo) and I are sorry to hear of the passing of Tom, we have lots of fond memories of working with Tom in the MAC club. This younger generation doesn’t know Tom but still benefitted with things Tom did for the sports programs and Alleghany High School. It was a pleasure to have known Tom, and help him with all his projects that he wanted to do. Once Tom retired from MAC club selling 50/50 was never the same. Alleghany County lost a great man. The family will be in our thoughts and prayers. David and Roberta Crizer

The Alleghany Highlands has lost a truly great man. I have known Tom since 1965 and the privilege of working with him as a player, coach, and Athletic Director. There has never been a bigger supporter of high school athletics. Starting with CFHS and then at AHS, Tom was the ultimate Mountaineer. From Susan, Chris, and myself test in peace old bidfy.
