    Tam, was one of a kind. Always the first to be there to help someone else, even a friend he had not met yet. Hunting with Uncle Dave Malloy, who I am sure he has already spent some time with to share stories. My heart goes out to Darla, Josh and family. He will be missed by so many people. We are blessed to have him touch amour lives and gives us so many wonderful memories. Gods Blessings ????????❤️❤️❤️

    I am sincerely sorry for your loss. I had the opportunity to work with Tam for a little while and it was always a pleasure. He was very kind, sweet and funny. It breaks my heart to hear about his passing. Your family is in my thoughts and prayers.

    Tam was a coworker and friend of mine here at ODOT. He was a hard worker and always wanted to do things the right way. I only knew him for a few years, but it was always a pleasure when I got the opportunity to talk to him or spend a bit of time with him. He will definitely be missed here at the Department!
