Keeping all of you in our thoughts and prayers at this difficult time. We were just getting to know Tom, he was a fun loving guy.
We enjoyed seeing him out in the neighborhood in his very cool Margaritaville golf cart. Always stopped to say “Hi”. He will be missed.

Dear Rachelle,
Ron called me about Tom’s passing. Such a loss! I always considered him one of the “good guys”. He will be missed. He always treated me like a close friend when we went on our golf trips.

I am now in a senior living residence on oxygen 24 hours a day. Sorry to miss the funeral. Thinking of you and Ron.

Miles Pope

Tom,
I regret having to do this, but being in Cincinnati this is all I can do. You’re going to be missed. I’m so grateful that you and Rae accepted me into your family, being best friends with Aaron. It was such a pleasure to meet you. I’m fortunate enough to have gotten to make memories with you and your family. Vacation at Ocean Isle Beach NC, and the lake house in New-York. Going fishing with you and Aaron early in the morning, and riding in your truck down to NC. Hearing this news was tough to wake up to. I wish there was something I could do to fix this, but God needed you to do a job that others cannot. I hope and pray that you rest peacefully. I hope and pray for your family to get through this grieving process in due time, as they lost a huge part of their hearts. You’ll be remembered, you’ll be missed, but you will never be forgotten. Rae and family, I’m so sorry for your guyś loss. Unfortunately, times like these are apart of life, but nobody deserves to have to go through something so hard, yet so unexpected. I’m glad that Tom got to watch me grow up, and I’m so happy that Tom got to see me achieve my goals of becoming a Police Officer. He knew how much I wanted it, and always supported me for that. I’ll never forget all of the conversations we had about the career, and getting to meet your son, Chris and learning from him. I wish I could make it to your visitation, but I will surely make sure to visit Rae and the family when I can. Rest In Peace, Tom. God bless you, and your family.
Love Nathan.

I had the pleasure of hiring Tom Hoyes as the VP Mid Atlantic Region Public Sector at Sprint/Nextel. Tom managed 100’s of people, and I can honestly say, I never talked to any of them that did not love Tom. He was an enthusiastic leader, and everyone loved to follow his lead.
Tom hosted many region meetings, where he brought his team together and, I had the privilege of attending most of them. They were always upbeat, and you could easily see that everyone there enjoyed working for Tom.
I had kept in touch with Tom over the years and in fact, had spoken to him earlier last week. I am shocked and saddened by this tragic event. I will miss his friendship and our almost weekly calls.
Rae, Chris, and Courtney, I am so sorry for your loss.
Rest in peace my good friend!
