    What a sad year thus far we lost tom Knapp and bob munden. George Jones never sang a truer song than who is going to fill their shoes?

    Truely nice fellow who will go down as one of the great "Showmen" like Herb Parsons and the Topperweins.

    Sad Day when we loose such a fellow as Tom.

    We had him a couple of years ago do a show at our club. Great guy and especially well with the kids. A lot of laughs at a dinner with him that evening, shooting wasn't the only thing he did well. So sorry to here of his passing. George Jones was right, Who's Gonna Fill Those Shoes has a special meaning now more than ever. God Bless them both, great showmen.

    God rest his soul.

    Tom

    Will be missed a GREAT SHOWMAN and a true friend he worked hard and was a big supporter of the Wounded Warriors..The Game Fair will not be the same.

    Rest in peace my friend.

    Chuck Delaney & all the people who you met and entertained.

    Saw his exhibition at the US Open at Caribou GC last year. I am really glad
    I got to see such a great Showman and a great Patriot.

    Great talent. Brought him to town twice for charity events and once to a gun club. Really enjoyed his shooting but vocal commentary was outstanding as well.

    Tom you will be missed by many. Sincerest condolences to the family and friends of a fantastic ole school exhibition shooter.

    How old was he? He most definitely didn't die of old age.

    I'm really crushed about hearing this.

    I'm sure i am not the only one interested in hearing what the heck happened. i didn't hear of any sickness or condition either.

    Details of his passing would be appreciated from anyone close to the family. There are many of us that really loved what he did for shooting. i always watched him when we was on TV.

    Crushed!!!
