He went to work for the City of Des Moines on the Fire Department and served as an Engineer/Driver for several stations throughout Des Moines before retiring after 29 years of service. In 1976, Tom moved to Stuart to make his home. Tom was a member of All Saints Catholic Church, VFW post 9127 in Des Moines and the Stuart American Legion.
