Although I have not seen much of Tom in recent years, I will always remember his engaging nature, a great sense of humor and his ability to talk to just about anyone and make them feel at ease. He had a great sense of humor, a big smile and he was always fun to be around. My condolences to his beautiful daughters, his father and all who knew, loved and appreciated Tom.

Our thoughts and heartfelt sympathy to the Walukonis family. As part of our "Dance Family" when the girls were younger, we are so fortunate to have spent time with Tom, Tina and the girls. May the Lord be a comfort to the family but especially Meg, Melanie and Macey; three of the sweetest, loveliest, and kindest young women we've ever known. May God Bless and comfort all who will miss Tom.

I only knew Tom for a short while, working at Central Power Systems. He was fun to be around and I hated to see him leave our work place. I am even sadder to hear of his passing. Just last August we were at a company sales meeting in Kansas City together, and one evening everyone went out to a place that had go cart racing. Tom won a silly trophy for taking first place and I won a sillier trophy for last place. So we called ourselves the St Louis Bookends. There were about 20 other people who finished between us. I gotta say, Tom could sure drive a go cart! Tom will be in our prayers, as will his family and friends.

I haven't seen Tom since just after high school. What stands out for me, was how much he smiled and laughed. God bless him!

My deepest sympathies to Tom's family and friends. I pray that they find comfort knowing he's at peace and his spirit lives on. My faith tells me, it's not over. He'll be watching over those he loves and you will be reunited. God bless you all! Lisa Payne

We will miss all of the happy times shared with the Walukonis clan! Tom was quite the jokster and had a great sense of humor. He seemed the happiest when he was hanging out with his girls! Tina and girls are in our thoughts and prayers. Goodbye Tom, you are at peace now. Keep the angels laughing! Much love, Doug and Kelly Schneider
