Remembering you fondly Mr Tomak, you were a wonderful caring teacher and I consider it an honor to have been taught by one of the best!

Mr. Tomak was a great coach and guidance counselor. I knew him in the mid 80's at Hannibal Central School. He will be missed

Larry and I worked together in Hannibal for six years. He and I and our wives became fast and close friends. Many great coaching memories and times together. In fact we bought a lot and shared the same well for our first homes. He was a great guy and was sooo sorry to hear of his passing. RIP my old friend.

Mr. Tomak as I always called him, is the single person I can look back on who inspired me to "keep on running", as he wrote in my yearbook. I will always thank him and Gary Wilson for pushing me to be my best. I doubt I would have had the sports career and coaching career without Mr. Tomak. Thank you for all you did for me. Don Hass Jr.

He was a great science teacher and was also my Guidance Counselor in my Senior year. He gently nudged me into attending college. I'm so glad that he did. Thanks for having faith in me Larry.
RIP my friend.

A great teacher and mentor, may your spirit and wisdom live on through the thousands of people your life touch while you were with us.

Sorry to read about this. He was a new teacher when I attended Hannibal in early to mid 1970s. I was in his class and on the Track and Cross Country teams; class of '75. A very caring man. Will be sorely missed by many.
