He was a City and County worker, and drove 18 wheeler trucks, and he also assisted his baby sister in her business ventures helping whenever he could, Thomas was also proud to be a Ballot Box Handler. He loved fishing, playing golf, and he knew all the rules. When he was not working he enjoyed riding his bike. Thomas would out dance you all night, and was a Top Chef and loved to BBQ.
