Sept 13, 2014

Tom Branch, great friend of mine, super fellow. I met Tom not through the Ham radio, I purchased a house from Tom ( I was seeking for a Realtor that was a Ham Opertaor) Tom (K4NR) found us a house, and we were friends and business partners ever since. Tom was famous in North Dallas in Realtor profession, he is an author, and published books for Realtors. He also was a veteran of 21 years in the Airforce...! I will truly miss Tom, great spirit, super friend and always there for anyone... Here is the official information about Tom Tom left us way too soon in the early morning hours of September 13, 2014 after a courageous 9-month battle with kidney cancer. He is survived by his wife Gina, sons Thomas and Jack, step- daughters Ashley and Jordan Adams, his father Parker, his brother Patrick and his wife Shelly, and his sister Helene. He also adored his three grandchildren Ė Kaydence, Parker and Ava, along with his many nieces and nephews. Tom proudly served his country for 21 years in the United States Air Force. He began as a Russian linguist and retired as a Senior Master Sergeant in Air Force Recruiting. He was awarded the Meritorious Service Medal after serving in the first Gulf War. Post military, Tom was a Human Resources Director briefly, but found his calling as a residential real estate broker. Tom served on the Board of Directors for the Collin County Association of Realtors, chaired several committees, and was voted the 2013 Realtor of the Year for all of Collin County. He will be remembered for his servant leadership, and his unselfish gift of time and expertise to help others become better at their craft. When not working, Tom enjoyed amateur radio, traveling, and live music. He always said life is about experiences, not material objects.

I am dumbfounded. I also purchased a house thru Tom and Gina. He was a very capable realtor and a very nice guy. He will be greatly missed and long remembered. My most sincere condolences to the family.
