After his service in the United States Army, Tom and Mary moved to South Florida where he began a 35 year career as a tree farm/nursery manager. Tom managed some of the largest and most respected Nurseries and Landscape Companies in South Florida. During his career his accomplishments were many. What he created in this field was not only beautiful but will live on forever and leave the earth a better place. Tom had a very loyal following of friends in this industry. Many of these people stayed with him throughout his entire career. He was loved by many and will be missed by all. Tom loved spending time with family and friends, fishing and telling tales. He was an instant friend to all. His family and many friends will miss his sense of humor, comical laugh and generous heart.
