Steve knew him when he was around with kids in little leage. I knew him since we were allowed to cross chinden to go to Church. I was involved in alot of Church camps and loved being with the family. He will be missed and think about him alot
I just found out about Pastor Tom passing. I'm so sorry for his family but I know he is with Jesus. I met Pastor Tom in 1993 when he did my wedding. My mother met him when she was a teenager. She said he would minister to all the kids and brought many to God.
He was a warm, caring and wonderful man. Heaven got one of the best!
Prayers for comfort for the family,
Was so sorry to hear about Pastot Tom my deep condolences to the whole family! Sorry I couldn’t make it to the Vineyard today. My prayers are with Ginger and all of the family!
He was and always will be a very special man! The family has lost a loved one here but we know where he is!
I was 9 yrs. old when I met one of the greatest men I will ever meet, Pastor Tom . The Community Christian Center was the church we had always gone to so when Pastor Tom and Ginger came they just joined our big family. Their love and kindness shown through from the very first day. I remember spending so much time at the CCC because Pastor Tom made everything fun. One of my fondest memories was the year I was given the chance to go to Church Camp up by Sun Valley with Pastor Tom and Twila Gray. We had a blast, the three of us sang a song together in front of the whole camp. Pastor Tom had a Beautiful voice, my Mom loved to hear him sing also. From the time I was 9 yrs old until the day when Pastor Tom left the CCC, that congregation felt like my second home, we all had a special bond. I remember when we received a Juke Box in our youth group when I was a teenager. So many great memories of the special times with Pastor Tom and Ginger. Pastor Tom married two of my sons and of course me more than once but I got it right this time. In one of my darkest times, when my son ,Cody was born with health problems the first face I saw coming into my hospital room was Pastor Tom. The church helped pay for me to fly to Salt Lake City to be with Cody until Thank God,and many prayers he finally got to come home. Memories of Pastor Tom driving a bus to take us to the Shrine Circus and later to Skateland. These are memories I will have forever and always know your Husband and your Father was the kindest, sweetest man that could ever be.I will love and miss him always.....Thank you for sharing him with all of us.
We are so sorry to hear of Pastor Tom's passing. He has been one of the most influential people in my life. I have such wonderful memories of him. As a youth, when I wasn't in school, I spent most of my time with Pastor Tom and considered him my mentor. He married my wife and I . We met with him for counselling before our wedding and he gave us such good advise..we have been married for 46 years. He officiated at the funerals of my grandma, my sister, my Mom and my son. He truly was a huge part of my family. He was a great man and I will miss him.
Pastor Tom was a great mentor of young adults and taught us well about the things that count in life and how to live life. We were blessed to have known him. Rest In Peace The world is much better because of you
Its with great sadness, I see where Pastor Tom's has passed, but with great joy to know he's with our Lord Jesus Christ and at peace. I pray the lord peace, be with all of at is time. I will dearly miss his radio messages. With love an respect. Fred Van Over
Our prayers and hearts go out to Ginger and the family.
Pastor Tom impacted our lives "eternally".
We are grateful that our Heavenly Father brought this extraordinary man of God, Servant and Pastor into our lives. Our lives are "forever" changed.
What a celebration it must be with Tom, Dad, BIlly, Bev, Corrie, Adrian, Keith and so many others from our lifetimes who have gone on before. What a day of rejoicing it is!
Pastor Tom lived his life for Jesus and impacted the lives of countless others.
You will be missed, but never gone.

I have been ill for some time. I have a lot of time to think, and go to the lord over my life.. When pastor Tom said, put God first and put every one else, next and your self last I now understand.
