Tommy was born and raised in Cobb County. He graduated from McEachern High School in 1968, and he completed an Office Technology program at Branell College in 1985. He was creative and talented in many areas, but his greatest joy was music. He loved to sing. Tennis was always his sport of choice. His most impressive career was as an apprentice to the well-known Master Glassblower, Don Lily.
He had a positive attitude, a contagious smile, and he enjoyed making people laugh. He was a people person, and he will be dearly missed.
