He loved making bird houses and painting knick knacks with Bekah. Papa will always be her favorite.Tom worked at Target for many years and created many friendships. He enjoyed stocking the shelves so that he could get a first look at what new Hot Wheels that were coming out and get first dibs. He also was a mechanic for many years with companies such as Good Year and Nobles Tires. He was not afraid to tell you what car not to get.For being a strong, hardworking man, he was very loving and empathetic of others. He always gives big hugs and kisses. If you were having a bad day or felt sad, he was always there to get you through it. He would tell you light hearted stories or try to make you laugh making goofy faces and jokes. Sometimes you couldn’t take him seriously, but he always took his family seriously and did everything he could to provide for them and spend time with them.Tom will never be forgotten. He shared with us beautiful memories of smiles and laughter. Although he is not with us physically, he is always with us in our hearts and watching us every day. He would not want us to cry, but to smile and celebrate the wonderful life he lived.
