Born in 1925 as a fraternal twin, he grew up in Cincinnati. Tom was stationed in the Pacific during WWII as a paratrooper.  He earned a bachelor's degree from the University of Cincinnati in 1950.   His first job was Sports Publicity Director at his alma mater, and he went on to a career in automotive advertising and retired in 1986.  Tom lived much of his life in Cincinnati, Ohio and Detroit, Michigan and relocated to Sun City Center in 2006.

An extrovert, he made friends easily throughout his life.  Tom’s Catholic faith was important to him.  He was also an ardent fan of sports, movies, wine, and dining out in restaurants.  Due to COVID-19, arrangements will be held at a date to be determined in 2021.
