I first met Tom 3 year ago, when I join the PPS IT department. Tom was such a character, making everyone smile. Tom always had a joke to tell or a great story. He will truly be missed. See ya later alligator, after while crocodile.

I honestly can't remember the last time Tommy and I actually saw each other. However, I'll always remember the easy going guy from our being childhood neighbors and later in high school. I've worked for the Army now as a contractor for three years and greatly appreciate his personal commitment and sacrifice to our country. I trust God will comfort his parents, wife, childeren and friends with his passing so early in life. Please accept my best wishes!

Having Tom come to our building to help with technology issues or needs was always a treat. His positive attitude and sense of humor always brightened my day. Nothing ever seemed to get him down. I retired in 2012 and didn't realize Tom was sick. I'm so sorry to hear about his passing and your loss.

The last time I saw Tom was at our Classified Connection. "Gloria, what do you want?" He would always tease me about how many classes I was taking of his (taken ten years of classes). "Tom, how else would I see you," He would laugh and that's the sense of humor I will miss. Tom has touch many of our lives and he will be missed.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

I'm proud to say that Tom Voight was my friend. I met him initially at IT training sessions for Portland Public Schools. He was funny, charming and made learning about computer programs fun. His training sessions were always the most popular - it was always standing room only! I also had occasion to call on Tom when I was making changes to our school's master phone schedule. I could always count on him to respond quickly and to make all the needed changes, no matter how small. Tom also helped me set up our school's copier code system. That was when I realized what a great teacher he was. The entire "training" was by phone, and he walked me through my understanding of the entire process. He could break down complex tasks into small, understandable parts, which isn't easy to do. I'm happy that in the course of one day's conversation with Tom, I was able to thank him for his service to our country. He attained the rank of Sargent Major, which is quite an accomplishment. I'm lucky to have met Tom. I'll never forget him.

I am so sorry for your loss. I was devestated when I read the news. I have worked closely with Tom at PPS for 14 years. He was always willing to help, revise plans to make things work, respond to my inquiries with amazing speed; even when he was working from home last month. Tom's smile, silliness and kindness will be very missed. God bless you all and may you experience the nearness of God as you go through this greivious time.

When I joined the 104th Division, 3rd Brigade in 2001, I met SGM Tom Voight. He is the key inspiration for me to have fun in uniform and get the job done. From his willie nelson wig at family day to showing me his Vietnam draft card a few years ago, I never stopped learning from, laughing at (with), and loving this great man. To his family- may you cherish the humor that God gave us with SGM Tom. I truly wish he was still here.
MSG (ret) Gannon Sorg left a message on May 22, 2014:
Sergeant Major, I just want to thank you for always having my back. You won arguments by being right, not loud. You could totally disarm people with well placed humor, and OMG, you knew how to "work the system". You always had time for me, so I can only believe you did for everyone else. Until we meet again, keep the Bud Light cold.

Tom was such a funny, sweet, and always helpful coworker. I will miss pestering him with computer lab and tech questions, which he never grew impatient with, his always entertaining fantasy football picks, and his friendly smile and spirit in the halls. So sorry for your family and PPS' loss.

Claudia J Egan left a message on May 19, 2014:
I am shocked and so sad to hear of Tom's passing. As a PPS secretary, I had many IT training classes over the years with Tom as the "teacher". He was alsways so kind and patient to those of us who were/are "Tech Challenged". His light-heartedness and humor created a very fun learninng experience. I believe I can speak for many when I say Tom will truly be missed.

Lokie and Mrs. Voight, I was saddened to read about Tommy. I have many good memories of our times in DeMolay. One in particular involves staying over at your house so we could get an early start for a Conclave in either Richmond or Hampton Rhodes when we were about 14 or 15. I am very sorry for your loss. I am sorry I lost track of him over the years.

Mary and Mr & Mrs Voight , my thoughts and prayers are with you and your families during this most difficult time. Tommy was a special person and a great friend. He was an original part of the 7 of us who hung out together during our junior and senior high school years. Many many wonderful memories together including borrowing the Voight family pop-up camper for the seven of us to take to senior beach week. Tommy was a one of a kind personality who will always be fondly remembered.

With my deepest and most heartfelt condolences, I will miss Tom, so much. I wish I could let him know just how special he was to me. I will miss his wonderful personality, he would never allow anyone to feel inferior. Job aside, which he did with expertise. He was just a wonderful human being and this world has lost one of the really good ones. My deepest sympathies to the family.

I had the honor of working with Tom here at PPS, we both started in 2000. Tom was such a pleasure to work with. I have never worked with anyone who was as positive, kind, and hard working. Loved his sense of humor. Plus, he occasionally laughed at my jokes too :). I am very sorry for your loss. My prayers are with all of his friends and family. I will miss you Tom! Love, Jonathan

My sincere sympathies to Tom's wonderful family. In his 14 years with Portland Public Schools, Tom always knew exactly how each job needed to be done, and did it with his quick wit, and caring attention to every trainee. His last major responsibility was to organize the massive training effort for a successful roll-out of our new student information system. As evidence of his planning, he displayed a large color-coded masterpiece of a calendar, with every hour of every class carefully thought out. He had prepared for every detail, and the training went off without a hitch. He has left us a legacy and many terrific memories, and will be greatly missed.
