Among his interests were Pilot, Motorcyclist, Fisherman, Precision Rifle/Gun competitor, creative wood worker and designer. Oh the wonderful things that would come from his mind and his talented hands. Always eager to share his abilities, he produced many custom items.

So proud of his boys, he delighted in their every achievement. Encouragement and firm direction were his tools of choice.Tom leaves behind his boys and his sisters Jayne, Cheryl and Carla as well as numerous friends and co-workers. He was predeceased by his parents, Henry and Helen Basch. He touched so many people with his easy wit and charming manner, his loss is immeasurable.
