Upon his return from service, Tom earned a Bachelor of Science degree in Mechanical Engineering from the Milwaukee School of Engineering. This led to his successful employment of 38 years with Harnischfeger Corporation in the sales of construction and mining equipment, specializing in the sales of electric mining shovels used in open pit mining. His career with Harnischfeger led Tom and his family to move many times. They lived in California, Illinois, Minnesota, Wisconsin, and Johannesburg, South Africa. An honor that he was particularly proud of was his selection as one of the Mining Men of the Century in the state of Wyoming. Tom was a wonderful husband and father, he loved his family and the Lord very much. He was very patriotic and was a devout Catholic and active member of Christ the King Church in Evergreen, Colorado. Tom enjoyed hunting and fishing with his buddies. He also enjoyed watching nature programs, Bluebloods, westerns, and loved Irish music.
