Oh how this precious man was loved. He was such a wonderful person all his 78 years. He loved his wife Linda like no other. They were just a pair. They had one son that built them an amazing big family and Linda and Tommy loved them all dearly. I remember how proud they were of their son and his baseball career. Proud daddy. Of course he is part of our big Templin/Bailey family. My parents Joe and Nell loved Tommy and all his siblings and they were so close to his momma and daddy. Made many visits to their home. Tommy was a God loving man. At our big family Christmases he always led the prayer except for maybe a few times. He was my older cousin and I loved him with all my heart. That big smile and that boisterous laugh you just can't forget. He was like a big teddy bear. Honest to the bone. He will be missed by so man family and friends. He had a big immediate family and a bunch of aunts, uncles and cousins. Linda, Scott and Dana know we will always be here for you all. We so missed Tommy and Linda at our family Christmas this year and we will miss him every holiday and family get together. Love you all. Donna Kay and Kenny feels the same way!!!
