Tom really enjoyed spending quality time with his family, fishing, camping and being outdoors. He truly adored the bond he shared with his dogs, Petey and Polly. From a young age, Tom had a true passion and talent for playing music of all types, primarily Rock and Roll; and his love for playing guitar couldn’t go unnoticed. He particularly enjoyed the frequent “jam and Karaoke” sessions with a few of his closest friends and his children of whom he taught all his boys how to play guitar and had the girls covering vocals. He was an avid collector of guitars and was very proud of the many custom designed guitars he created. He frequently told his children that his guitars were going to be his legacy. It is no surprise that his children developed that same passion for music that he had.
There will be no services at this time. A Celebration of Life, gathering in true T-Tommy form, with music, jamming and karaoke will take place at a later date to be determined.
Memorial contributions may be made to the family.
