Tommy had a personality that was larger than life. He never met a stranger and always knew how to put a smile on your face. He enjoyed fishing and being outdoors. Tommy had recently gained a new friend he enjoyed spending time with. He will be truly missed by his entire family, all those who knew him and his dear friend, Buddy the alligator.
