Tom had a memorable sense of humor and loved to make people laugh. His love of fun, led him to honoring fellow employees at the VA with unforgettable skits. Tom had a passion for cars; he owned and restored many classic cars. His greatest enjoyment was his family; he treasured spending time with his wife, son, daughter-in-law and most especially his grandchildren.

My deepest sympathy for your loss. May your fond memories of Tom continually lift your spirits. May you also remember the promises of our Heavenly Father Jehovah. He will undo death by means of the resurrection, and soon end all our suffering. (Rev. 21:3-5; John 5:28, 29) May His promises strengthen and comfort you during this difficult time.

One of the best compliments I can think of is saying someone is a genuine “Nice Person”. Tom Ross was one of the great ones. He made life fuller for those who were lucky enough to know him. His love of life, strive for quality, and contagious humor made Floyd stand out. He will be missed and the family has our prayers.
