    My Brother James Weins and I, John Weins, cousins of Tom are shocked to hear about the death of Tom. I always enjoyed seeing Tom and Cindy at the 4th of July parade in Longville after he retired from Johnson Marine. Our regret is that we did not have more opportunities to visit over the years.

    Tom Larsen was always the “GO TO” man when any of our boats needed service, winterizing or any other service when he worked at Johnson Marine in Longville. I have always missed Tom after he left Johnson Marine. I send to his family my deepest sympathy and condolences on his death.

    I worked with Tom for many years at Johnson Marine and we spent a great deal of time together. He was a wonderful man and I learned so much from him. I very much enjoyed our friendship. He will certainly be missed and my sympathies to his family.
