Tom was born the youngest of six children in Ferndale, Michigan in 1941. He attended Michigan State University before setting off on a nearly five-decade career as a merchandising executive. He spent the last 30 years as Director of Merchandising for Glacier National Park, Inc. where he impacted the lives of countless colleagues, employees and friends.
Tom loved sports, especially as a fan of MSU basketball and football as well as being a dedicated Phoenix Suns fan over the years. He loved the outdoors and his time living in both Arizona and Montana. He loved traveling, hiking, reading, and spending time with his lifelong friends including Jim and Mickey. But more than anything he treasured his family and spending time with them in Michigan, Montana, California, and Arizona while watching the younger generations grow. He will be deeply missed by all.
