Tom was born on August 01, 1954 in Hobbs, NM. He passed away on Tuesday, May 15, 2018.
Tom loved his family and friends and was an outdoorsman. There was not a deer in the woods that could get away from him or a fish in the water that could swim away.
"That man was my father and I wouldn't have it any other way." His children reflect, "Every morning I wake up to a blue sky-- knowing you're up there. I will always have a blue sky. That's why we called you blue!"
"There is no other like my brother!" - Tom's siblings.
