In his younger years he was the drummer in a band, and could be found in the garage practicing with the band, and playing gigs in bars in the surrounding areas. He had a love for music of all genres, and he often times could be found listening to Snoop Dogg and 2 Pac with his granddaughter Heather.

He loved to watch football and baseball, and the Hawkeyes and Cubs were his favorite teams. Tom is survived by his granddaughter, Heather (Lee) McDonald, and great grandkids Tyler, Liam & Finn McDonald, his son and grandson, and several cousins and friends.
