    Great man always had your back. I would see him at RCW. The last time I saw was this last April at the Cornfeed car show. He would make it a point to come over and say hello! Tom you will truly be missed.

    It was sad to hear of the sudden passing of Staudenmayer. He gave me the final push to join the department. He was a longtime friend and partner of my father at CIM. Staudenmayer took me out one night and gave me a long talk about how well CDC treated him and what it can do for my future in whatever path I choose to do. I applied the next day and a few months later I landed at CIM and was able to work with my Father and Staudenmayer. I was very fortunate to know him. Tallest and Happiest guy around. Best Mustache Award!

    It was a surprise to hear of Tom’s passing. We worked to together at the CIM/RCW facility where Tom proved to be an exceptional and hard working employee. He never turned down difficult special assignments to help ensure the expeditious processing of inmates out of the reception center. Tom was always conscientious about getting the job done. He also had a very positive and bubbly personality. I am deeply saddened by his passing. Rest in peace Tom!

    A good friend at CIM for 25 yrs. He was always upbeat, and had a keen sense of humor. Not mentioned above Tom was a Vietnam era Army veteran. We promoted,
    and worked together as CC-I’s from 2000 to 2007 when we retired. He was FUN to work with.
    Tom was VERY dedicated to his job, and burned a grand total of ZERO sick time in 25 yrs!! NOT an everyday achievement. I am greatly saddened by his passing, and will truly miss my good friend! CDCR has lost one of it’s most exceptional employees! God Bless!
