Thomas " Tom" loved driving, listening to good music, and supporting his local businesses. One of his favorite go to spots was The Brunch Club in Downtown Dayton. Tom was considered a regular there and even had a breakfast item named

after him. He developed friendships with the staff and the customers. His most recent venture was to take pictures of murals in the Dayton area and he created a book with narrations on many of the pictures. The family would like to thank the Dayton Physician's Network and Hospice for their incredible care of Thomas. No service is planned. If desired, contributions may be made to Hospice or Discover Classical Radio
