Tom was a Devout Catholic and a member of Immaculate Conception in Dardenne Prairie, Mo. He cherished spending time with his family the most and always put their needs before his own. He was a humble and practical man who enjoyed working with his clients and providing sound advice outside of work, even to those who didn’t necessarily want to hear it. Tom worked very hard until he retired at the end of 2017 and passed his work ethic onto his family, whom he was very proud of. When he wasn’t working, he enjoyed visiting with others and fishing with family, friends, and clients who became friends.
In lieu of flowers memorials may be made in Tom’s name to JDRF, Mid-America Transplant or American Heart Association.
