  1. I will surely miss my periodic phone calls from Tommy Boy and his lengthy voice mails he would leave me that would make me smile or laugh. We have been working together his whole career length while working at Bon Venture Services. I am blessed to have known him. My thoughts and prayers to his family. May God wrap his arms around them all and bring comfort to each of them. May he welcome Tom with open arms.

  2. It was with deep sadness to hear of Mr. Kilroy’s passing. He was a warm, funny, generous, and charming man to be around and talk to. As his daughter Courtney’s friend for many years, I always enjoyed seeing Tom and having a good talk with him, and laughs. His voice and laugh were distinct.

    I recall many occasions at the family home in Grandview over the years and around the area.

    May Tom’s memory be a blessing to all who knew him. Sending big hugs and blessings to the family!

    Lots of love, The ULLMANS
