About 42 years ago I worked with Tom at the old K-Mart store in Okemos. Years passed and we all moved on, but, I never forgot Tom. He was always a pleasure to work with and we always had a lot of fun while working.
Am so sorry to hear of his death , and, as his family you are in my thoughts an prayers.
RIP Tom!!

To Tom’s family; I pray that each day is more endurable than the last day and I pray that you have all the support that you need and want. From now on and in the days to come. I pray that you experience this scripture at Proverbs 17:17 ” A true companion is loving all the time a nd is a brother born for when there is distress.” Whether its the right words, a hearing ear or a prayer said in your behalf, may you have that true companion. My deepest sympathy.

To Tom Stolsky’s family and friends,
I bowled with Tom for the past 10 years and getting to know him was a blessing. Tom was always the first to crack a joke and never held back anything he was thinking. He always showed respect to those who respected him and I admired that in him. I’ll always remember him for being the most maticulous with cutting my hair making sure everything was perfect. He always labeled my hair cut, “the gettin some hair cut.” He made sure I told my wife everytime, it definitely made me laugh. Tom was a special person and he will be missed by us all but we will always have the good times and memories in our hearts. He definitely made sure we wouldn’t ever forget him and always continue to celebrate his life. 🙂
My condolences go out to all that knew him. Remember though, Tom celebrated a great life here on earth and he is finally in perfect health now that he is in the presence of God. I truly feel Tom left a very positive mark on this earth and God will accept him through the gates of heaven and we will all meet again.
