He married Charlene Keena on August 2nd, 1986. They had two children; Ashley (87) and Bradley (90). Tom's love for his wife and children was evident in every aspect of his life.
Tom worked many years in the transportation industry; first as a driver for GFG. His driving career continued at Red River Cement (Strata) where he advanced into a dispatcher; a position he held for 18 years. He also worked as a dispatcher at Knife River (Bemidji, MN) and most recently at CHS Inc. in Grand Forks. He truly loved the concrete industry and was always "in the know" of projects happening around town.
Outside of work he enjoyed cruising in his 71 mustang, playing dominos and cards with family, cheering on the Packers, and ordering late night Jimmy Johns.
