Tommy grew up in Galveston, Texas, and attended Kirwin Catholic High School for boys making many friends which lasted his lifetime.  In 1953, Tommy and his friends formed a country western band called "Broomstick Cowboys" starting at a talent show then performing at the Menard Youth Center and around the Galveston area.  Tommy was active in the Coast Guards and achieved a Black Belt in Karate.

Tommy and Charlotte were married in 1969 and celebrated 51 wonderful years together. Along with music, Tommy enjoyed spending time in the kitchen creating wonderful meals and desserts which were passed down from his mother and grandmother and shared with everyone. Tommy also enjoyed the outdoors camping with his family, fishing, and hunting, however, playing music and his family were always the first loves of his life.

Tommy was an active member of Mary Queen Catholic Church and a 4th Degree Knight in the Knights of Columbus.  He was a District Manager with Mutual of Omaha and retired after 31 years, in 1992.  After retirement, to keep active, Tommy went to work part-time with Crowder Funeral Home and later with Jeter Funeral Home.

    Charlotte,

    I am so sorry to hear about Tommy's passing. Reading the piece in the Galveston paper this morning, Tommy seemed to have a very blessed life. I hope that you will find peace in life without your partner as well. And Charlotte also so sorry to hear about you and Charlynn's. I pray that will get resolved and you both will be able to have a sister relationship very soon.

    My best regards,
    Deanna Kasper

    Charlotte,
    I was so surprised to find this obituary for Tommy. He was a great guy. May he RIP and may you may you do well without him. It isn't
    easy. As you may recall I lost Mellette a little over five years ago.
    God's Blessings,
    Gary Townsend

  5. The world will miss Tommy, as will his friends, and of course, his family. It seems life is too short for the good guys.

  6. Cheryl and I have such fond memories of time spent with you and Tommy. The music, the laughter; those mornings on the ski slopes- you and I being the only one's to brave night skiing in below zero temps! Tommy, shaking us all awake with that loud declaration: "The mountains are calling!"
