Honestly could not wish to meet a kinder, more generous, warm hearted and fun loving man. A great Evertonian whose passion, smile, laughter and 'glass half full' attitude was infectious. I loved spending time in your company and feel very proud and privileged to call you my friend. Grateful to have fantastic memories but away games will never be the same again. Thoughts and love are with Gaynor, Lee and all the family. Rest in peace, Tom, we will all miss you so much mate xxx love Nikkie xxx

Away days over the last few years weren't always great football performances but they did become much anticipated social events because of Tom. Texting, planning accommodation, the pub or club we'd meet at and even the round! All driven by Tom always ready to welcome fellow Toffees. We actually joked at times that the footy had got in the way of a great weekend! A giant of a man in warmth, laughter, generosity, loyalty & kindness......You'll never know how much you'll be missed and how you touched so many people. Eternally grateful to have known you and blessed to have had you as our friend. Sincere & deepest sympathy to Gaye, Lee and all your family and friends....RIP Tom,,,,,Jayne & Steve.

Tommy was a brilliant guy. A great Toffee Too. Whenever you were in his company you knew you would be laughing. He is missed so much already. We had great times together playing for the Merebrook pub in the past, watching Everton with his and my Dad, and then with our kids. Then latterly going to all the aways. Brilliant times and fabulous memories. Nil Satis Nisi Optimum. He was Nothing But The Best our Tommy.

I knew the day I met Tom he was a very special man. I also knew that I wasn't the only love of his life. The other one being Everton football club. Especially when I had to ring the F A to make sure the cup final wasn't on our wedding day because if it had of been we would have had to re arrange our wedding. I also knew not to make any arrangements in the football season as every weekend he would be home or away with his beloved blues. Wouldn't have changed this for the world because this is part of what made him such a great man. Love and miss him always. His" childbride" Gay. Xxxxxxxxxxxx

Although I never knew Tom - from an Evertonian perspective, what a legacy! El Bob has the most exciting squad since the 80s; watch over the boys from the heady heights, and hope you have a few laughs with all the Blues that have gone before you. R.I.P.

A great Evertonian, a generous friend and a very special man. It was a privilege to have shared your company as we travelled supporting our team. You were on such great form at the Swansea match who would have dreamed it would be the last game we would share. You will be sadly missed by so many. Our thoughts are with your family at this difficult time. Rest in peace Tom.
