 Tom was raised in Chicago, where he  met  and  married  Sue
Norton and started his family. He moved them to the  country  of
small  town  Lowell, Indiana.     He  spent  his  life  working  as  a
pipefitter out of Local 597. He  was  a  genius  when  it  came to
building things. He  was  also  avid in energy efficiency and built
an 85’ tall  windmill  to  help  avert  the  increasing  expenses  of
power. He  also  designed  and,  with  the  help  of  his daughter
Tammy, built  a  boiler  to  heat  their  home.

Tom and his motorcycle went hand in hand. He was a member
of  the  GWRRA  and  GWTA  as  Director  of  Safety  for  many
years, and  put  thousands  of  miles  on  traveling  the country.
Gardening was also one of Tom's many hobbies.   After his girls
were grown, he  and  Sue  divorced, and  he  eventually  retired
and moved to the mountains in Tennessee. There he opened a
greenhouse  to  sell  produce  from  with   great   help  from  his
special  friend  Carolyn. He will forever be in our heart,  may  he
Rest In Peace.
