Dear Susan and all of the Thomas family. My thoughts and prayers are with the Tommy Thomas family. This Gentle Giant was loved and respected by all who knew this fine man. Tommy was always smiling with his work with the Clarksburg Police Dept. and the hundreds most likely thousands of young people he touched over many years with the Dare program and all of the time in his gym with the young people he loved so very much. In the schools I worked, as soon as Tommy walked in the building he would soon be surrounded by the kids who loved and respected Him so much. Tommy was always giving to others, never asking anything in return. God bless and watch over the Tommy Thomas family. Hugh Gainer and family.

Susan, I am so very sorry to hear of Tommy's passing. I have many found memories of Tommy from back in the late 60's and early 70's and his boxing career. Tommy was a good man, a kind man, and a person that liked to make a positive difference in the lives of everyone. That was obvious by his service as a Police Officer. Men of his caliber only come around every so often, and we are all lucky to have had our lives blessed in some manner by Tommy. I will keep you and all of the family in my prayers, and I ask that our Lord hold you tightly in his loving arms and provide you with comfort in your time of grief. May God Bless you, and May God Bless Tommy's Soul. Rest in Peace my Brother in Blue.

Dear Susan and family, Please accept my Susan's and my sincere condolences for Tommy's passing. Having spent many years away from the Clarksburg area, We didn't know Tommy until we visited with him extensively at Bridgeport Health Care. He was a dining companion when possible, soft spoken and would light up whether mentioning the renovation of the old Stealey school gym or other topics related to what we didn't know at the time was his outstanding community service. Yes, now we know Tommy was always a fighter, easy to see in his determination to associate normally as possible. Boxing gloves on his door announced to all of us his pride and joy. God Speed Tommy.

To Jerry and the family. I was so sorry to hear the loss of your brother/father. He was such a gentle giant. Tommy was a very humble man and touched many hearts of those that he didn't even know; especially during his boxing career. I would like to express my deepest condolences to the family. May God Bless...

Tommy and his family were staples of the Summit Park community that made it such a wonderful place to grow up. I don’t know anyone who had a bigger heart than Tommy, and he never had a negative thought. Hard to believe he was such a successful boxer, but he trained hard and appreciated his success. My deepest sympathy to Susan and his brother and sisters.

Dear Susan, I am so sorry to read of the loss of your husband, he was a wonderful man and a good friend, he was and always will be a true legend. I volunteered for 6 years at Nutter Fort Elementary School where Tommy led the D.A.R.E. Program. I will always remember what a nice person he was to be around and help out. The kids absolutely loved him, and adults always gathered around him when he was there. Tommy loved all of the kids and he not only loved but truly believed if he could help just one kid to stay away from drugs it was all worth it. He not only helped a small number, he was the very reason that many of our youths became honest, hard working adults staying away from drugs. I pray that those wonderful memories and the love he had for you will help you through the dark times. May you have happy memories and pride for the kind, helping person he was. Keeping you in thought and prayer, Tammy Christopher
