For many years Tommy and I helped cook the 1500 chicken halves for the Lions Club Chicken Barbeque. We enjoyed many robust discussions regarding local and state politics. Always loved his wit and wisdom. Rest in peace, Tommy.

Tommy and I have been friends ever since our parents went to LSU grad school (1950). He was one good, sweet, smart, kind man. Dianne (KD sis), YOU picked the right EN. Y'all had some awesome girls and you sent them my way by RHS. Great memories - but JUDITH did stress the whole family. Tommy will be missed. Love you all ! Loyce and of course Judith
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

“Cousin Tommy,” as my family called him, was such a kind person to Miss Annis and my parents. He was knowledgeable about Claiborne Parish history as well as law, Louisiana Tech, and many other interesting topics.

Dianne, we are so sorry to learn of Tommy’s passing. Tommy was DA when I first became a court reporter and I saw how he handled himself in the courtroom.
