2 Memories to “Thomas Francis Lavery”

  1. My thoughts and prayers are with your family at this time. We have know each other for over fifty years and survived some pretty rough spots. We made it then and we will make it over this trying time as well. My love goes out to all of you.

  2. Mark Tucker says:

    I worked with Tommy at Neudesic. He was helpful, kind, and knowledgeable. On one project in Las Vegas he helped me get up to speed technically and get integrated with the client. He did a great job leading the project and the client had a lot of respect for him. Tommy had a way of making others feel comfortable around him.

    My prayers go out to Amy, the boys, family and friends. May the Lord comfort you and give you peace.
