They Die in 3s: Two TV Toms down, one to go?

Today we learn of the deaths of two classic TV sidekicks named Tom:

Tom Poston, who goes back to the Golden Era but is best remembered from Newhart, at 85, and Tommy Newsom, Johnny Carson's backup bandleader and comedy foil from the heyday of the Tonight show, who made it to 78.

Sadder still:

They Die in Threes.

Which TV Tom will complete the deadly trifecta?
