He started working at Radio Shack in high school. He loved music and did some local deejaying. Tom worked some summers at The Corps of Engineers while Mr. Bob Creswell was Resource Manager. He then went to work at Baggett Electric working with Mr. Max, Sr., Mr. Max, Jr., Miss Susan and Wilson Grandison. He then went into business for himself as an appliance sales and repairman for the rest of his life.
In his growing up years, he loved to hunt, fish, explore the woods, find old bottles and other treasures. He was always tinkering on whichever vehicle he had in his teenage years. He loved to sit and reminisce and contemplate life. Tom never met a stranger and loved to talk to folks. He had a great memory for a tremendous number of events in his life. He helped a great deal of people out with his vast knowledge of all types of equipment, electrical systems, air conditioning and heating systems, and all appliances.
He was a loyal son, brother, uncle and friend.
