Tom owned a printing business and was a board member of the American Youth Soccer Organization. He loved coaching his daughter in soccer and watching Michigan State Spartans football and basketball with her. He and his wife enjoyed many long weekends at their cabin in northern Michigan, kayaking the Au Sable river and enjoying time with family and friends. When his son-in-law and daughter chose to move to Bismarck, he and his wife moved too.

Tom enjoyed the time he spent in Bismarck by admiring the sunsets, watching the wildlife, and taking some well-deserved vacations. Spending time with his daughter and four grandchildren brought him great joy. He lived a very happy life and was deeply loved.
