Tom worked for many years as a truck driver in New Carlisle, IN. After retiring from that he went back to work as a self employed Landscaper in the New Buffalo and MIchigan City area. Tom never left the house without a hair-comb in his pocket. He loved to be outdoors and specifically enjoyed fishing, with a giant collection of fishing poles. Tom was proud of all the traveling he did during his lifetime. He loved to tell stories of his time in New York City. He read auto-trader magazines daily, never missing an issue. He loved flea-markets and antique shops with tons of collectibles to show for it. He was known for his great spaghetti and meatball recipe. There was never a day where his favorite music by Frank Sinatra And Yanni wasn’t playing. Tom loved to spend time with his family and thought every bond that he had was special.
