Tom was an accomplished musician, having played a variety of instruments. He was a founding member of Hanover Concert Band, Swing Time Band, and devoted time to many volunteer bands in the community. Tom was Pipe Major for St. Andrew’s Pipe Band for years. He was currently Pipe Major for Clan MacLeod Pipes and Drums, a new group in honor of his long-time friend and colleague, the late Tim MacLeod. Together they founded the Benedictine College Prep Pipes and Drums program. He lived a full life, especially enjoying his hound dog, Sammie, coffee, camping, and red Jeep Wrangler.
