Anyone that met Tom knew he was a hard working family man with an always active social life.  He had weekly outings with friends and was an active member of the American Legion, AMVETS, the Moose, and the VFW.

Tom was a man of great faith and attended Saturday evening services at Saint Richard’s Catholic Church in Barnesville, PA.
