    I would like to extend my deepest sympathy to the Schingle Family for their loss in the passing of Tommy. It is also a loss to me and all of his friends for which he had many. Tommy and I were class mates as well team mates at Catholic High. Even though we lost touch with each other through the years, I’ll never forget what good person and friend he was. Sincerely, Frank Schadrack
