Tom was born on September 13, 1938 in Marquette, MI where he graduated.  In June of 1958 he joined the U.S. Airforce serving until April of 1961 both over seas and in the states.

Over the years Tom enjoyed golf, bowling and softball and was an avid Packer fan.  Tom enjoyed playing any kind of a card game which he did often with friends and relatives.  He enjoyed hunting and most of all, time at the hunting camp with friends and relatives, where he was a great one for passing on the same stories year after year.  He always loved Christmas with his family.  Until his recent illness, he passed time weekly with friends at Tuesday “Burger Night” at the Konteka and then Friday  evenings at the White Pine American Legion Post 462 where he has been a member for years.
