Tom was the type to take on challenges with both enthusiasm and appreciation. He enjoyed working with children and had a great love for the outdoors. As Tom traveled the world, he was able to enjoy both of these. He was the type of person that when he was around children he would take them under his wing. Some of his best memories were of playing soccer with the children in Djibouti Africa when he was stationed there or being around the many kids he met during his time in Iraq.
In his honor, this foundation was created to combine two of his greatest joys and we will work hard to create something he would be proud of.
