Tom was a man who enjoyed the outdoors, fishing & hunting with his family & friends. He was a loving husband, father, grandfather, & uncle. If you met Tom for the first time, he came across as a bear. As you got to know him, you realized he was a large teddy bear at heart. He'll be especially missed for his generous spirit, a smile that could brighten anyone's day, and his large brown laughing eyes. He loved God, and left a strong Christian heritage for his family.
