Graduated Kootenai High School 1968. Attended North Idaho College for business. Worked for Union Pacific Railroad. Was in the Army Reserves 1971-1977. Tom worked in the woods, sawing, and his most loved job was hooking logs. Tom was very well known for his ability to hook logs. Tom had many nicknames "Mutt Mutt"," Mini Brute", and occasionally the "Little White Goat." Tommy trained several men to hook logs. No matter who he was working for or with he loved his working family, in his heart they were all his brothers and at least one occasion his sister.
He was an avid outdoorsman, his hobbies were hunting, fishing, trapping, camping, just spending time with nature.
The dearest to his heart were his family and his life-long friends, and his brothers and sisters in faith. Those that knew him know it was always a pleasure to have known him. His greatest love of all was the Lord, our God.
