I don't normally post on threads like this, but this man deserves some words.

We never met, nor did we ever do a deal, but we spoke numerous times on the phone about various cues and cuemakers and I always hung up feeling like I just spoke to a decent, genuine man.

You could tell that he was never trying to pull one over on you and his intentions were always good natured.

May your soul rest in peace, sir. You were one of the good ones.

Been. Tough year on AZ. We lost some great people. Did a deal with Tommie and he was a good guy. Not easy to write this post. Hope you were surrounded by those you love Tommie! Thank you for your time, caring and generosity.

Tommie was a class act all the way. I almost bought his gambler cue on a few different occasions. We talked about it a bunch, but were never able to come together on it. He was a very sincere, nice guy to talk to during all of our conversations. RIP Tommie. You're a great guy.

I've known Tommie for over 25 years and he was like a brother to me. This has been a very difficult week, to say the least.

But it means a lot to see so many posting their condolences and well-wishes.

It was no secret that Tommie loved pool, along with buying, selling, and trading cues. But, more importantly, he felt that this forum was like an extended "pool family" that watches out for and supports each other.

I know Tommie valued the many friendships and good memories that he had made throughout his years on AzBilliards.

We'll miss you, Tommie.

Rest in peace & Godspeed.
