Tom's Story

On January 24,2008, Tom was diagnosed with cancerous lesions in his liver. Tom was determined and fought until the end. Tom endured any and all side effects with dignity, hope for a cure, and with the hope for another day with his family and friends. Tom worked full-time at the Staunton Police Department, missing work only for treatments and doctor's appointments. Tom was a wonderful husband, father, and friend, and maintained a very close and involved relationship with his family and friends.
