He attended University of MI and graduated at the University of Toledo with a degree in finance.

Tom loved offshore fishing and then turned to sail racing his J-24 named “Watercolors” on the Indian River. He became a member of the East Coast Sailing Association where he served as river race chairman at the Melbourne Yacht Club.
Tom met his future wife Jackie, graduate of Toledo Central Catholic High School, at a family wedding in San Francisco in 2001.

After retirement, Tom bought a cabin on the northern shore of Lake Huron near Cedarville MI where he refurbished a 1957 Chris Craft which he named “Oh Jackie.” Tom and Jackie enjoyed cruising amongst the Les Cheneaux Islands and were often visited by family and friends. Jackie turned to her passion and became an accomplished water-color artist serving on the board of the Les Cheneaux Arts Council. Tom and Jackie have enjoyed their retirement in Indian Harbor Beach Florida and continued cruising around on a Grady-White on the Indian River.
