Returning to Kentucky reunited him with his beloved family and introduced him to his new church family at First United Methodist Church Campbellsville. A devoted Christian, Tom sang in the choir, was president of the Upper Room Sunday School Class, and was always ready to help out with anything that involved the children.
His greatest loves were his family, his church, the UK Wildcats, the Baltimore Ravens, and the Cleveland Indians. Tom could play piano by ear and was excited to celebrate his love for music when he discovered the music program at Campbellsville University. He was a fixture for many years at all concerts and recitals he could attend. Tom’s kindness, generosity, and spirit will be deeply missed by all who loved him.
He is survived by his four sisters: Tula Peterson and Mildred White of Campbellsville; Christine Greenman of Winchester, Indiana; and Virginia Ward (Bill) of Madison, Indiana. He is also survived by 14 nieces and nephews whom he loved very much and he relished in spoiling them.
