Tom graduated from Fort Hill High School, in Cumberland, and earned a degree in art at Towson State College. He served in the U.S. Air Force, worked as an engineer for CSX and completed his career with the U.S. Department of the Treasury, in Martinsburg.

To honor the spirit of Tom, in lieu of flowers, the family would appreciate that donations be made to the renovations fund at St. Mary Church, 3334B University Ave., Morgantown, WV 26505, or the art department at West Virginia University, so that others may find comfort in faith as he did or pursue their creative dreams as he encouraged his loved ones to do.
