Tom graduated from Chillicothe High School in 1956. He retired from the Ross County Sheriff's Department where he was a Reserve Deputy as well as from Chilpaco Paper Mill where he was a millwright. Tom was a HAM radio operator for 30 years. He raised Texas Longhorn Cattle and was instrumental to their success in Southern Ohio. After his retirement, he went on to work for several Texas Longhorn breeders as a ranch hand. Tom spent much of his life calf roping and team roping; his true love was being a cowboy. His life-long dream became a reality four years ago when he moved to Oklahoma. He always said Oklahoma was his home and his dream was to one day live there.
Tom had given his life to the Lord and he was a member of the Waterin' Hole Cowboy Church of Garvin, Oklahoma.
