He worked as pipefitter for the Local 23 for many years prior to retirement. He was a faith filled man who attended Cornerstone Baptist Church. In his spare time, he enjoyed woodworking, fishing, and snowmobiling. Tom also liked to go out to eat at various restaurants especially with the supper club. But; more than anything he was a family man. He was a supportive husband, father, and grandfather who loved to attend all the school activities and sporting events.
