Tom was 82 years old and very proud of that number; he would allows make sure to mention his age in any conversation!
Tom served two years in the Army stationed in Fort Hood, TX from 1954-1956. He enjoyed his training and service he provided and liked to tell stories of this time in his life. He went on to work as a mortgage broker, develop land and work in real estate for many years...he was 82 years old after all. Tom enjoyed gardening, painting, watching documentaries, cracking smart aleck jokes and most all spending time and picking on with his great grandchildren. He was a wonderful Grandpa and lit up every time his grandchildren walked through the door. He was loved very much and will be greatly missed. Did I forget to mention he was 82 years old? 
Tom is survived by his 6 children, 12 Grandchildren and 11 Great Grandchildren.
A small graveside ceremony will be held at Fort Snelling National Cemetery for family and close friends.
