Thom’s life can’t be summed up in a few paragraphs however we will try and touch on the highlights and character. Thom grew up in South St. Louis and would often reminisce about growing up there and his walks to Cherokee street with his mom, brothers and sister. He attended Cleveland High School and graduated “early”. After high school he worked odd jobs before becoming a machine operator for Alumax Foils. He then decided to go into the Plumbers Apprenticeship, eventually becoming a service plumber with Local 562. He won second place for Apprentice of the Year in 2006. Thom was well respected by his union and union brothers. If you ever worked with Thom on a job, he was well known for singing as loud as he could, and of course, off key but he knew it, and it didn’t matter because he loved to elevate anyone’s mood and often referred to his female friends and strangers, princess or beautiful to make sure they felt special. Thom was such a presence and could light up the room with his infectious smile and laugh. He loved music and movies – Science Fiction was what he was most known to have in his collection, however it certainly didn’t stop with that genre’. As far as his taste in music, you might have been texted a song from him, everything from Country to Hard Rock. He could recite one liner’s from most classic movies, especially comedy. Thom was a giver and “gave” to everyone he knew. Most anyone who was in his life could share a story about what he had done for them at one time or another. He loved life and his family and one of the happiest days of his life was his wedding day. He would say his greatest and most proud accomplishment was the birth of his Son Colin. He was so proud of him and was the best Dad anyone could ask for. From the time Colin was an infant, on most Saturday mornings or days off, he and Colin would be out and about going to museums to spending time at the park. Thom was always the “go to guy” for an answer to a question because he was the “guy who knew everything”, a walking encyclopedia. He could also fix just about anything. The saddest and most tragic day of his life was when he lost his brother Bill to a drunk driver in 1984. Thom will forever be remembered for all these things and for his genuine character. He loved his family and friends, and was loved in return. He will be forever missed.
