So very sorry for your loss. May Tommy R.I.P. He was my grandfathers (TJ Townsend) cousin.

I'm blessed to have had a final visit with our sweetheart Friday, and will always remember how his eyes lit up when you came into the room singing Side by Side. I thought Tommy could have jumped out of bed at the sight of Captain Bobby walking in, and will cherish being a part of the special moments when those two very dear friends met again for the last time. Tommy's life and legend will live on well after all of us meet again in the hereafter, and I thank you both for sharing your love and laughter, joy and wisdom with us all. - Carol

I shared some really special times with Tommy onstage. What larks! When he did Steambath with me at UHCL, his costume consisted of boxer underwear. My challenge was to keep him from walking all over campus that way! Not always successful. He's the only actor I ever gave notes to while sitting in his truck. I'll miss Tommy.

Cathy, this is Rachel's daughter. We are so sorry to hear about Tommy's passing. I just learned of his stroke in recent days and then of his passing. Our prayers be with you at this time. Tommy was a good man.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.

Cathy and family, we're so sad to hear the news of Tommy's passing. Yes, it was a long struggle, but it's always hard to lose someone. Take care. We so enjoyed Mardi Gras at you house in the past with John Lackey.

Sad to lose Tommy. He was an interesting guy to know. I’m glad to have worked with him on quite a few productions over the years. he was in A Funny Thing Happened on the Way to the Forum- the first musical I directed at COM. Tommy was a man of many talents and surprises. I especially enjoyed working with him on “Box Thirteen” and “The Best Li’l Whorehouse in Texas.”- ironically the last musical I did at COM. Tommy brought a rare kind of benevolent ferocity to the role of the Sheriff - amazingly effective. Sorry I wasn’t able to be at his funeral, I understand it was very nice. He will be missed.
