Our deepest sympathy to Sandy and the entire King family. We are so heartbroken about losing Tom. I first met him on the tennis courts at PRSR decades ago and the first thing I noticed about Tom was his desire to always get better. While he worked tirelessly on improving his own skills, he took great pride in how hard his boys worked on their games as well...he was a really proud father. He was also a very proud husband, always sharing Sandy's victories on the tennis court and comments about how great a mom she was. Tom was one of those rare people that had "IT". With no intention of being in the spotlight, he was. People were naturally drawn to Tom because his kindness, fairness and sincerity were so endearing, but what we will all remember the most about Tom King was his tremendous faith, courage and his indomitable fighting spirit. We shared so many good times over the years that I will cherish. He was the Best!!!!

I have only known Tom for a short time on the Pickleball court and at SportFit but always appreciated his kind encouragement and generous spirit. He was a delight to know and will be dearly missed. My heartfelt sympathies for Sandy and all of the family.
