He graduated from Zane Trace High School in 1969. He was a truck driver by trade with over 4.5 million miles traveled across forty-eight states of our beautiful country. Tom enjoyed farming and hunting where he grew up as a boy and like his mother, planting flowers and vegetables was a great past time for him. When Tom was not at home on the weekends, many times you would find him spending time at his campsite, working on the houseboat, lending a hand with anyone who needed it, and getting some fishing time in. He was also a long time member of the Belmont Better Hunting & Fishing Club where he was their Club President and Trustee for several terms. After being baptized, Tom became a member of the First Christian Church of Barnesville.
