Born and raised in the lakes and mountains of western Maine, Tom grew up fishing, hunting and skiing in the great outdoors. He joined the Army in 1967 and served four years until his discharge in 1971. Tom spent 30 years as a Union Ironworker and achieved the office of President of the Maine Local and General Organizer in New England.

He has an extensive history of volunteering with organizations such as the Special Olympics and has also served on the Volunteer Board for the MS Walkathon and as ski and bike instructor and advisor for Maine Adaptive Sports and Recreation. Tom holds certifications from the Professional Ski Instructors of America in Alpine and Alpine Adaptive Instructing.

Tom is recently retired and enjoying being with his wife Mary Etta, his spoiled Scottie, Brady and skiing, hiking, biking and traveling.

With his experience as a returning Veteran and love of dogs, Pets for Vets Portland is a perfect match for Tom.
