Tom and the entire Elwart family has always been one of the most pleasant families I have ever had the experience to know. Lead by Tom and Barb, the family has the biggest hearts and rallies behind each other at all times. I hope in the time of the tremendous loss, your families love and support and the many prayers from all of us fortunate family friends and loved one's can help you deal with life without this great man/husband/father/father-in-law/grandparent!

You will be missed Tom!

All my love to the family!

I will always remember Tom as a generous, kind soul with a wonderful sense of humor. His Aunt Bunny always told me he was special and a great guy to be around. He made an effort to reach out where it was needed. I am so sorry for your loss.

To all of the Elwart family- I am so very very sorry for the loss of your husband and father. Tom was one of the nicest guys I have ever met. May God give you all strength and comfort in these coming days. Nancy Haugh

It is so sad when we lose one of our friends or family members.

Tom was a really good guy, and just remember, God takes all the good ones first!!

I am so sorry to hear about Toms passing. My prayers are with all of you at this time.

Tom will always be remembered for his very dry humor!! In high school he was very quiet but always witty! The last three members of the "Seven Boys" will certainly miss him, but we shall all meet again in Heaven where Tom is reserving our seats!! Rest in peace Tom, you deserve the rest!! Love ya, Corky

Another heartbreak loss for the LaDuke families. Tom was such a special cousin. He was blessed with a wonderful marriage and soulmate, Barbara. How he loved his children and grandchildren as well as his sisters and all of his first cousins. You join many other first cousins as well as all of our aunts and uncles. It is obvious that our dear Lord will say, Welcome home my good and faithful servant. He will live on in our hearts forever but his presence will be missed. Love you Tom!!
