Tom was together with his wife and high school sweetheart Rhonda for 43 years and married for 36 years. Together they had four beautiful children and two grandchildren.
Tom had a vibrant personality, a roaring laugh, and a servants heart. He was passionate about his faith and was involved in many church ministries throughout his lifetime. We know he is at peace with the Lord and that heaven will enjoy his sense of humor. Tom loved working with his hands, playing competitive card games with his children, and making food for those he loved. He was an entrepreneur, a story teller, friend to many, and loved people well. Tom ran a marine repair business in Pulaski called Tom’s Marine Service and put integrity and care into each customer’s boat.
