He belonged to Holy Rosary Catholic Church in Graceville, Knights of Columbus, Farmers Union, and he served on the Toqua Township Board.

Tom is lovingly remembered by his brothers: Ed, of Graceville, and Richard, of Browns Valley; his sister-in-law Marietta Heck of Browns Valley; and many nieces and nephews.

He was preceded in death by his parents; his brothers: Joe, Bart, John, and Bernard; and his sister, Theresa DiBrito.
