Sending thoughts and prayers to the Franxman family at this difficult time. I had the pleasure working w Tom at Comair. He is one man I can honestly say always had a smile on his face and one hard worker! He worked circles around me! He will be missed.
Our hearts are broken by the loss of such a wonderful man. Our prayers and heartfelt blessings to the entire Franxman family. Our St Benedict community/family will never be the same.
The class of 37 has just greeted yet another angel to join the many already gone to soon!

Pat and family. So sorry about your loss. It is a loss at St. Ben’s also. Tom was a special person and we enjoyed watching your family interact. Our condolences to Kathy and Bill also. Blessings to all of you.
I had the pleasure of meeting Tom once I became a member of St. Bens. I am so thankful that God allowed us to cross paths. One of the kindest souls I have ever had the pleasure of meeting! Heaven is much brighter!
Tom was a bright shining star! When I first met him at St. Benedict church I knew we would get along fabulously. He reminds me of my own father in his intelligence, integrity, and faith. Peace, prayer and live to your family.
Tom, Brandy, and Boys,
We were so pleased to meet Tom and Patsy last year. They were such warm and friendly people. Our hearts go out to each of you knowing that the shock of an unexpected death coupled with the Christmas season is so overwhelming.
