I knew Tom for many years during my time with the Crown Point Police Dept. An absolute gem of a person and a true gentleman. God bless.

Uncle Tom you were like a father to me. You helped me see the world through different eyes, and loved me unconditionally, when my world went upside down. The place you hold in my heart is so very special. Thank you. Just one request ... please kiss Aunt Fritzi for me.

To the Kayes family, please accept my deepest sympathy on the loss of Mr. Kayes. I worked for him at Kayes and Paterson. He was a wonderful boss and a great example of a gentleman. May his memory be eternal ☦️?
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Uncle Tom, I was so blessed to have you as my Godfather and of course Aunt Fritz as my Godmother. You both always made me feel so special. I will miss you so much and will always hold you dear to my heart.
Kathy PIerce left a message on June 23, 2023:
Tom asked me once what I thought his legacy would be. I said, "Are you serious? Look at your family, your kids, your grandkids, your great-grands! I have never seen a man with so many people loving him, caring for him, and driving & flying coast-to-coast just to be with him. You have loved greatly and are greatly loved." He smiled and nodded.
