As a maintenance engineer he traveled several states maintaining the cell saver medical equipment.
Tom loved fishing and camping at Edisto Beach, traveling, gardening and working in his workshop. Tom was a member of Millbrook Baptist Church of Aiken, S.C. where he enjoyed spending time with his fellow Sunday School friends. They enjoyed sharing fishing stories, cooking, and having fish frys and delicious desserts with their wives.
Tom was a kind gentleman always willing to help anyone in need. Tom's jovial personality expressed all that he loved about his life's blessings! His love for life he shared with everyone! His story telling, his sense of humor, jokes and laughter was loved by all that knew Tom! Tom's love for His Lord, his beloved wife Betty, his family, fellowman and his Love for our Country is the legacy that he leaves behind to all that knew him, and he will be greatly missed!
