    I am deeply saddened to hear of TA’s passing. He was a brother Knight in the KofC, a friend and one of the finest men I have known. He reached out to me regularly when I lost my job of 10 years, 4 years ago, and it was my wife who took him to the ER earlier this year when he injured himself at church. He will be missed by many and was loved by all. Our sympathies to his family. We share in your loss. Don Bushell

    TA touched many people throughout his lifetime, I am but one of many. I met him a short four years ago; however, his display of honor and commitment to others has and will continue to influence my daily interactions with others throughout my lifetime. May God Bless his family as he Blessed me with TA in my life!
