Tom worked as a gardener for a number of customers on the North Shore over the years. He had a fierce love of nature, enjoyed studying maps, and was an avid weather watcher. He followed world events closely and had no shortage of opinions on current topics, which made him a force to reckon with in conversations with family, friends and sometimes the casual acquaintance!
