Tom spent his childhood living on Beckford Drive, then on Sardis Road, and made lifelong friends in each place. During his school years he was a member of Sardis Presbyterian Church. As a member of Boy Scout Troop 33, he earned the rank of Eagle. Tom attended East Mecklenburg High School and graduated from Camden Military Academy, where he played football and was a member of their military drill team. He loved the outdoors, and enjoyed camping, hunting, and fishing. He loved motorcycles, enjoyed riding and trips with others. He was also an avid reader. Tom's career was in transportation, logging several decades of safe driving hours serving others and as an instructor for beginning drivers. His over-the-road career allowed him to tour much of the country and served his interest in people, history, and the beauty of America. Tom was a hugger, loved to laugh, big-hearted, enjoyed a good joke, and entertained people with his stories.
