I've known Tommy for Tommy about 20 years and have never thought he was anything but a great guy. He was ALWAYS willing to assist in any manner and if you weren't sure how he could help he'd offer suggestions. He will be greatly missed by many of us. Go rest on high my friend, until we meet again. Brian Lowe , September 9, 2021 Over the last 60 yes have had many great times and memories with Tommy and the Galbraith’s. Rest In Peace my friend.
