    I moved to Beaumont Texas in August of 1980. Tommy was one of the first people I met, we’d play shuffleboard, shoot pool and drink long-neck beer at the Cactus Lounge for hours. He always had a smile on his face and a story to go with that smile. I haven’t seen or talked to him in many years, but I’ve always remembered him fondly. Fly high my old friend…you’ll be surely missed!

    I remember Tommy from way back in high school. So friendly, never met a stranger with that non stop smile and great laugh He was a good friend of the Barrett family. I remember going to his and Denise’s wedding at St. Ann’s back in the 80’s. It’s been too long since I last saw him but I’m thinking it was probably at Chrystal Beach.
    I know he is with God and all those who loved him and have been waiting for him.
    The Parsons family have my deepest condolences.

    Oysters. Blessed to have run into Denise and Tommy at the PBVFD Oyster Fry recently and blessed to have called Tommy a friend since way back in Little League. Always a smile, always laughter, solid man who made a difference and will be remembered for his heart.

    Rudy Torres says:

    My heart saddened when I heard of Tommy’s passing. My deepest condolences to Denise and family. I’m here for you.
    I only knew Tommy a short time but in that time I got to enjoy his joyful company. He was truly a man of faith and would help anyone in need. And now you will be watching me put up the Christmas lights at church, making sure I do right.
    You are greatly missed.
    May God keep you next to him, in Jesus’ name I pray.

    If you listen closely, you can hear the angles chuckling as they listen to one of Tommy’s many stories.

    I will miss you, brother.

    Uncle Tommy, with all his family, are shining lights to our family. The never ending love and devotion shared with us is second only to God’s love. Tommy lived and loved life to fullest with his heart leading the way. God has gained a real man. I know Tommy is rejoicing at seeing his parents and Lester again. RIP Uncle Tommy. You are missed dearly and loved more.

    Tommy my little brother started out as a little past. He banged on the door trying to get in. We were older and really didn’t have an interest in having him help us with our homework. He came over to my house and helped me out witch-very few brothers do and be so happy and proud of how things turned out on the door trying to get in we were older and really didn’t have any interest and having him help us with our homework she came over to my house which is very brothers to be so happy I’m proud of turned out. I think he knew the happiness it brought me. Many times at Christmas when everyone came to my house with their favorite dollar store gifts Lester’s rules were if you touched it then you got it or a gift for someone. He laughed and it was one of the best times I’ve had. Tommy came over for swimming party and we all sit around and relax and enjoy each other‘s company with a big smile on his face is. We had just seen him during one of the swim parties a couple of weeks ago. He looks great and we all had a nice time, a good memory to keep in my heart. I love you. Your big sis
