On his happiest days you could find Tommy being "Poppa T" to one of his foster kids or grandkids, on the lake with a fishing pole in hand, cooking up something for his family, in HIS chair watching football, or at a church singing (and the following potluck of course). If he could teach a lesson or bring a smile, no costume was too over-the-top. If you caught him in the winter then you've witnessed his beard preparation to play Santa every Christmas. He brought his enthusiasm and determination to everything he did; from training dogs, to knitting scarves for his family, to his faith in his Lord and Savior. His joy, kind heart, and infectious smile will be missed by all.
