Tom was a graduate of Honesdale High School, he enjoyed tinkering on things and working with his father at his garage which led him to follow in his footsteps to become a mechanic.  He also owned a plumbing business for many years.  He was currently employed as a mechanic at Mr. Tire in Sayre, PA.  He spent most of his time with his family and enjoyed time with his grandchildren.  Tom was full of life with a quirky personality who could always find someone to talk to.
