Tommy was a heavy crane operator most of his life; he enjoyed race cars, boats, motorcycles, anything and everything that involved going fast. Tommy had many special talents, one we can all agree on was his ability to tell stories and make others laugh. He will be greatly missed by so many but his memory will live on forever.
