He started his career when he was 15 years old with Big Bear Stores where he worked for 25 years as a Store Manager at German Village, Northern Lights, Lincoln Village and assisted in the opening of several new stores. Tom continued his career with IGA and finally retiring from Save-A-Lot Stores after a 45 year career in the grocery business. Tom would always tell you he was an “Old Grocery Man”. Lovingly referred to by his kid as “The Colonel” because he was The Boss until the day he died. Tom will always be remembered by all who loved him for the twinkle in his eye, his beautiful smile, his line of BS a mile long, as the prankster of the family, everyone’s favorite and his heart of gold. Tom’s Daughter Kathy would like to thank her Daughter Madison, Son Tim, Cousins Lori and Tanny, and Uncle Kenny (for being her Hero) for all the love and support they have shown during Tom’s final journey.
