A true leader and (perhaps unknowing) mentor to many, Tom saw only good in others, to whom he provided continuous warmth and encouragement.

One of the most intelligent and driven people I have had the pleasure to be acquainted with, who was always approachable and delivered any solution with honesty, humility and humour.

Despite feeling like the apprentice in the presence of the master, I always felt any task was never insurmountable after time with Tom - his passion for solutions and diligence were absolutely infectious - I hope I am able to do him proud in any further tasks I undertake.

We shall not mention the cricket...

"Ta", Tom, for furnishing me with your time, knowledge and ethos - an inspiration and example to many - you will be missed.

Deepest condolences to Tom's family.
