After an honorable discharge, Tom moved his family to Colorado, Georgia, and eventually settled in Noblesville, Indiana. After a long and impressive executive sales career, he retired from Johns Manville Inc. and moved to Seminole, AL with his wife, Carol, to be closer to family (and the beach).
Tom loved spending his time with family, especially his grandchildren and great- grandchild. He loved being at the beach, by the pool, or sitting in his family room telling stories and sharing memories.
