Tom served in the United States Army and was a part of Operation Iraqi Freedom and Operation New Dawn with his highest rank being a Sergeant (SGT E-5). Tom left the US Army in 2011 to explore other career opportunities outside of the military.
Tom was a big lover of music and movies. He loved to sing and was lead singer in a band with his friends. Tom could always find a way to put a smile on someone’s face, whether it was with his goofy wit or an imitation of Jim Carrey or some other comedic actor. Tom’s big personality was present as soon as he would enter a room.
Tom was a son, a brother, a friend and a dad. Tom will be sorely missed by many.
