Condolence & Memory Journal

Brad 2007?

Posted by Cyril and Judy Pfeiffer - FORT WAYNE - friend   August 02, 2020

Sympathy and fond memories to Turflinger Family. I keep thinking of Tom and checking to see if he is home. We had many good times together that I will never forget. Steam, car, and antique auctions to name a few. Occasional drinks at Legion, VFW, or Billy's South Town Tavern.

My condolences to the family of Tom Turflinger. I worked with Tom at the downtown Belmont Liquors in the early 1980s. He was a good guy with a lot of insight.

Jason & Bradley, So sorry to hear the passing of your dad! Always enjoyed getting his yearly Christmas card, and the friendship he developed with my mother Betty L Turflinger) in her later years. Heartfelt sympathy sent!

It so saddened me to hear this. I got to know Tom while bartending at the Legion. He would bring sweet Dorothy in just before closing on Wednesday nights after hitting the VFW first. He drove me a little bonkers at first because he always grabbed a wrag first to wipe the bar when I thought I always kept a clean bar...ha ha. But it was always a pleasure talking to him. He helped me out by counting my tips for me while I was closing up and always offered to stay until I was done so I wouldn't have to leave by myself. I usually told him I was good, but there were many nights that he and I and Dorothy would leave at the same time. Rest in Peace Tom....

This was a fitting tribute to a class man and real gentleman. He was a best friend. He loved his family, past and present.
My sincere sympathy to Brad, Jason, Verna Rita, Dorothy and all the grandchildren.
He will be remembered often in my thoughts and prayers for he and his family and friends.
A real honor to have met and known him.

Tom was always kind to me whenever I'd see him on the streets of FW. I thank him for his service on the FWPD, and in our military. May he rest in peace now
