    I have been passing by Tom’s shop daily for months now on my way to a neighboring business I own as well. Tom and I would talk often about how we owners wear so many hats and roll up our sleeves. Had to close down during the shut down sadly.

    Honestly, I did not hear of Tom’s passing, during our trying times. I have been missing my horn sounding off, as I use to see him out front of his shop. I know how hard Tom worked to provide for his family. Tom always gave me a big smile, waving, as he knew my 06’ Silver Anniversary Hemi Jeep Commander passing by neighborly. I would use his excellent service from time to time. Sometimes he would not even charge me and make some quick adjustments out of kindness and pride of his work.

    Tom and I would have fun while I was picking his brain from time to time about auto’s, as an old school SMS kid mechanic working on mine. With this virus most of us have been out of touch, apprehensive, stopping by our neighbors and friends. Often I wondered if he was there working inside.

    Safe to say the golden garage gates flew opened wide, as all Angels in mechanic jumper suit uniforms, started blurring automobile’s horns loudly, in unison like brassy trumpets for his arrival in heaven. I know he is no longer in pain or any type of discomfort, while talking auto shop with his friends alike. We will miss Tom but know he is now in great hands and in comfort. I know his family will miss his love and guidance. But, one thing for sure I know his human kindness, wisdom, knowledge was appreciated, and he will be truly missed by all that met him until we meet again our good friend again.

    Hi Tom, thanks for helping me with my cars starting with my orange color 240 Z back in 1976. I’m thinking they got some sweet blue grass music where you’re at. Your friend, Joe

    My heart is so saddened to hear of Tom’s death. I’ve taken my van to Blue Valley garage for years. I had gotten to know him through conversations in Blue Valley garage waiting area. Tom always was looking out for someone else and had a such a wise and honest way of seeing the world. He spoke so proudly of his wife, daughters and grandchildren and it was obvious how much he loved and cared for them in the stories he would share. I’m so sorry for his family and our community. Tom’s kind giving heart, talents and soulful wisdom from the garage will be greatly missed by all who know him.

    I delivered Tom’s uniforms and shop towels to him every Thursday morning for the past 2+ years. Over those years, Tom and I developed a friendship. I was very sad to read the sign on the shop door saying he had passed. I know Tom will be missed.

    Just was a BVG a month ago. Tom helped fix up my vehicle. Very alarmed by his passing. A friend at another garage informed me today. My condolences go out to his family.

    We are so sorry for this tragic loss of Tom and we will keep his family in our prayers. We’ve known Tom and his family for years, and back when his daughters were little, we used to go over on the weekends and play Spades with him and his wife while our two sons played with his daughters. He will be missed.

      What happened to Tom? He was the only person I ever trusted to shoot me straight.

    Tom was a good friend of my son, Kevin Cook, for most of their lives. He was good-hearted and could do just about anything–for anybody. Tom was ahead of the curve when he bought that corner in Blue Valley and I was amazed when he built the buildings with his own hands. He really didn’t take the easy way on much of anything.

    We will certainly miss him. He didn’t deserve this ending.
