    The hardest working man I've met. Tommy always had a great sense of humor! "Boy if you think this water is shallow, just wade right on in....lol. Tommy was a good man and always willing to help others and go the extra mile. I wiil always remember the great memories at Anheuser-Busch we had together as a family, boy was that beer fresh and cold, right off the line on a very hot August day. Tommy aka (Hitman) you will be missed but never forgotten, thank you for all the great times, the sad times and most of all for being a Father figure to all us young bucks at AB. I will keep your family in my prayers as you keep watch from above. With all my Love to the Hitchens family I ask our Lord and Savior, Jesus Christ to touch each and everyone and to give you comfort in your great loss. I pray blessings and abundance of peaceful healing, in Jesus' name Amen.

    One of the coolest guys to ever walk the halls of James Blair High School. And cruised one of the coolest cars down The Duke. When he reversed the primer-painted '55 Chevy into his usual spot at the Burger Chef on Richmond Road - he immediately became the center of attention! He loved his parents, he loved Vicky, he was proud of his children and loved to talk about his special granddaughter, Piper. He was truly a son of James City County. He will be missed by many. My thoughts & prayers for his entire family.

    I’ve known Tommy for 51 years and never knew a harder working man that would do anything for you. As you walk through life you meet people who you can truly call your friend and he was one. Love him and miss him.
