  1. To Tom’s family,

    Members of Transit South 2 would like to express their sincere condolences. Tom was truly a great man, full if respect and integrity.

    When arriving at as our Sergeant, he at once showed us what he was made of.

    A patient man, full of respect and integrity. He made a huge impact upon us in the short time he spent with us.

    More importantly, Tom was more than a great man at VicPol. He was a family man. He spoke of his wife and children, saying this was a new chapter in his career where he could spend more time with his family, with his kids.

    The temptation to take up a position at the Academy was far to tempting to let it pass by. He grabbed it without blinking.

    “This is the first time in my career I’ll have weekend’s off to spend with my kids”, he said.

    You father, your husband, always put you first.

    May he rest in peace.

  2. All the best Jane, Ruby Tom and Pippa.
    Our thoughts are with you and while we’ll miss the wonderful Tom Snr, his legacy will always remain strong among you all.

  3. To Jane and family.

    Although we have never met, I would like to pass on my sincere condolences at losing Tom. I was a member of Squad 17/93 and did my recruit training with Tom. He was extremely well liked by everyone in the squad, always being happy and positive in his own quiet way. Although we didn’t cross paths often after that , I always knew Tom to be a person of great honesty and integrity.

    Met and worked with Tom at Melb CIU. Hard not to be touched by him. A rare genuine man with a ready laugh. We connected thru a love of renovation and Kennett River. Taken way too soon. Thankful for great memories. Deep condolences to the family. Our hearts go out to you.

  20. When we looked at the photos of the many times you shared
    And all those little glimpses that showed how much you cared
    Although you never would have gloated we all knew it was true
    You had the kind of happiness life gives to very few
    A home that you treasured, a family you held dear
    And a love with Jane that grew even deeper with each passing year.
    Your family and friends did you proud today Tom.
    A beautiful person through and through. How lucky we all were to have known you. RIP xx Lyn

  21. Jane and family,
    Sorry for your loss. I can still remember meeting Tom for the first time on day one of our police academy intake. Smiling and thoughtful, trying to find our way to the theatre to start recruit training – at least he had some idea 🙂

    Thoughts are with you and your family today. RIP

  22. What a lovely service, thank you for sharing it online. Tom was a wonderful man to work with,a true gentleman. My thoughts and prayers go to you all.

    Sending much love on the passing of Tom. You are all in our thoughts.
    A wonderful bloke who exuded calm, strength and cheekiness at every quick catch up or longer chat, especially during Covid lockdowns.
    We will remember him.

  30. Dear Jane,
    we didn’t know Tom well. However, what we did observe over many years was a happy wife and beautiful children living a wonderful life. This was clearly a testament to a great husband and father and there is little more important than that. We are deeply saddened for you and your kids and your extended family. May your great memories of him give you strength over the coming weeks, months and years. Lots of love from the Blackmans.

  31. To the family of Tom Hogan,

    I was very fortunate to have been taught by Tom at The Centre for Crime Investigation. I will be forever grateful for knowledge, wisdom and life experiences Tom imparted upon me during that time. The token 264 graduation socks with Tom’s face printed on them will be an ongoing reminder of the fun nature of his personality. Not only was he a fine Detective, but a true gentleman. He will be sadly missed by all of those who had the pleasure of knowing him. Please accept my sincerest condolences on the passing of Tom.

    Deepest sympathies.
    Jess Johnston

  32. To Jane, Ruby, Tom and Pippa – our deepest condolences. It is so unfair that such a wonderful husband, father and friend was taken too soon. May his presence be felt in all your future endeavours. x Georgi, Paul, Matilda and Harriet.

  33. To all Tom’s family and friends my condolences to you all on the passing of Tom. He was such a great person to have known on and off the football field he will be sadly missed. May you rest in peace Tom.

  34. To Jane and family
    I am so sorry for your loss. Tom was a remarkable man who will be sadly missed. I was very fortunate to work with him at The Centre for Crime Investigation prior to his transfer to Southern Region and will miss his unassuming nature, good grace and friendship. Unfortunately prior commitments prevented me attending today but you are all in my thoughts.

    Sharing your grief,
    Brian Montgomery

  35. To Jane and Family we wish to extend our sincere sympathies on the death of our lovely cousin Tommy. I was very happy that I got to talk to him after Aunty Phyllis death. May He rest in peace. Love Eithne and all the O Mahony families.
