Tom and his wife Rosemary married in Reno, NV on 5Sep1982. It was the second time they married one another. He had a large family, all of whom loved and adored him deeply.
Some of the places he traveled to while in the Army were Japan, Vietnam, and Hawaii where he lived for some time. He recounted his experiences to anyone who would listen, and I for one never tired of hearing them.
Perhaps my favorite quote of all time from Tom is "There's only been two people on this earth who ever walked on water--and I'm one of them."
Cremated, Ashes given to family or friend.
