  1. It is hard to know what to write when it comes to such a devastating loss like this.
    My condolences to Tom’s family, who he loved and cherished dearly. Tom was beloved by my whole family (Long’s). He holds a special place in our hearts along with Judy – we miss them both.

  2. When many in my family took a long drive trip many years ago Tom insisted we take his Van. He meant it, take my Van everyone can ride together. He would not take no for an answer. When I used to spend a night or two at his & Judy’s house, Tom would get up early, make coffee, & take out the French toast bread he had been soaking all night & make everyone French toast ( the best French toast) & thick cut bacon. He treated me like royalty. That is the rare kind of man he was. He cared about my family & how we were doing. A very rare & special man. He did everything for his wife & kids, showed his love in many ways. He will be missed by many but a man like Tom will never be forgotten by anyone lucky enough to know him. I loved him & Judy & all in the family. 🥀

  3. Uncle Tommy will be missed. He was a proud Navy Vet a proud American and proud of his Irish heritage. He was our family historian and chief council when it came to family yarns and past family memories and escapades. He loved his Family and his siblings and then some.
    He had a twinkle in his eye and a mischievous laugh when sharing stories. I’m sure as much he his missed he will be with those who passed prior Aunt Judy and most of the Walker clan of years gone by. R.I.P Uncle Tommy. We will meet again. Looking forward to his new tales of bliss in the after life. God comfort his survivors through this

  4. Our hearts just ache at the thought of Tom’s passing. We loved him dearly, and he will forever be in our hearts. Thank you Tom always giving us your love and support, you will be missed terribly, you will always be our “Tom Tom”.

    Love always,
    Debbie, Donata and our families

  5. Tom was the nicest man I have ever met. Only knew him for a short time but he was one of a kind. He was a very proud, honest man. He will truly be missed. 🙏🏻

  6. Such a shock, what a great man, always had a smile on his face and loved to be around friends and family. He will be missed dearly. Rest easy Tom.

  7. Just heard last night about Tom’s Passing. He came to the Lake of Ozarks a couple years ago and stay for a short while. Tom made many friends here. Everyone loved Tom and all the stories he would tell. HE will be missed. RIP. God’s Speed ❤️

  8. My condolences to the Walker clan. I am so sorry to hear about your dad. He and your mom were so nice and open arms to me when we were younger. I hope that you find some peace knowing he is with your mom dancing to Patsy Cline’s – Crazy.
