Later he would find himself in Littleton Colorado in 1986 where he would live and work for the Vitamin Cottage full time and transition into par time due to some health issues with his kidneys until December 31st 2021.
Tom absolutely loved the mountains and the outdoors. Tom loved to go hike and explore Colorado trails! Tom was an avid guitar player and spent many hours writing poetry and music! Tom also was a math genius in high school! And an amazing artist! Tom was a quiet and gentle soul. He was always willing to help anyone he could and he went out of his way several times to befriend and help people in need and walk with them through the valley of the shadow of death. He had a beautiful smile that lit up a room. He loved music and he loved the Beatles!
Tom was a scholar of the Holy Bible he had read the Bible several times through and was in love with his Savior Jesus Christ!
He loved sharing the hope that he had in his heart and wanted other people to know what an amazing God and Savior and friend that he served and walked with almost his entire adult life. Tom led his sisters and brother, Mom and dad and many others to the saving knowledge of Jesus Christ and His Amazing Grace. Tom will be missed! We have assurance that we will see him again through our LORD and Savior Jesus Christ in Heaven One Day soon!
