Tom spent most of his working years as a production manager for Experimental Nylon Products, an injection molding manufacturer.

He enjoyed long vacations with his wife and family as well as social activities such as golf and bowling leagues. He also loved telling stories, especially about his homeland of Scotland. He loved to laugh and always had a humorous angle to his tales.
