I didn't meet Tom until 10th grade when we worked on the float for Homecoming together. We worked inside a metal building across the street from Taco Tico. I remember Tom and Mary Sopavich the most from that event. I also remember a bunch of us that had worked on the float riding around in the back of a pickup truck and stopping by Tom's house to pick something up for the float.

Tom will always be remembered by me as a good-looking, clean-cut kid, with a fun personality and a contagious smile.

I remember reading his obituary and being stunned that he has passed away at such a young age.

Tom was one of the five that made Spanish class bearable. He, Darrel Forslund, Steve Greve, Kurt Nielson. Kent Machovec and I had so much fun in that class. Tom was always posive, always happy to see you and liked to have fun. He was one of the reasons I stayed in Spanish all through school. I have many great memories of Tom, he was a great guy and a good friend!!

I was always fond of Tom. He was a great guy that always had time for everyone. Fortunatly I had the pleasure to be around him in high school as well as Iowa Central.
College physics would not have been fun at all if it wasn't for Tom and Lauren Maiwurm.

Tom and I grew up together about a half a block apart near Cooper School.  I was born on 10/8/61 and he on 10/26/61.   He was the person who urged me to go out for swimming.  We kept in contact after graduation.  We went to Iowa Central together, carpooling with his mom who worked there.  We took an EMT class together and worked at the hospital.  After I went to Luther, I didn't see him much, but he was always good about sending me a birthday card--usually quite funny and innapropriate.  We visited him in Chicago where he worked as radiology tech, specializing in CT.  His spanish language skills came in handy for him frequently there.  He took my wife, Denae, and I to several fun and different night spots in Chicago.  Lots of fun.   I miss Tom.

Tom was my friend growing up in church and through North Junior High and into FDSH.   I remember his gregarious laughter and fun loving nature.  He had such a great sense of humor.  What a great guy.   When I went Wartburg College we didn't keep in touch, and the shock of learning that he died a few years back remind me of the regrets of not keeping up with friends through the years.  Memories of knowing Tom are very dear to me.  I miss him.  Gus Schill
