Tom was a member of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints. He worked most his life in the Oil fields. He enjoyed farming and raising his kids on the farm. He was a good example of hard work. He was a handyman and could fix anything. He enjoyed the mountains, and building things with his hands. If there was something he wanted to do, he did it. He loved to cook and fill your plate. He would tell you when you were done eating. If there was something he wanted to build, he built it big. He loved hunting with his family.
