Uncle Tommy also had many wonderful nieces and nephews.
Tom graduated from Davenport High School and Eastern Washington University.
He served proudly in the Marine Corp. for 11 years.
He and his wife Joyce spent 13 years in Arizona during the winter months dancing and Tom playing pool with his buddies.
Summers were spent at 7-bays where many hours were spent fishing on Lake Roosevelt.
Many times the fishing would end after dark as Tom would say “let’s go around this corner just one more time”.
Tom worked for various construction companies and finally retired from the city of Spokane in the signs and markers department.
Tom was very kind and generous and will be missed by all who knew him.
