Tom is a California native and currently resides in the Mojave area. He is a Senior DeMolay from Semper Fidelis Chapter in Livermore, CA, where he met the first of many lifelong friends. Though his Masonic life began in DeMolay in the 1970s, it was more than 30 years later, 2004, when he was first made a Mason and admitted to Holbrook Lodge. He served Holbrook Lodge in several offices, including Worshipful Master in 2008. Tom also made himself available to assist in degrees and other events for Holbrook and other area Lodges, and served several years as the Rainbow Dad for Hillsboro Assembly.
Tom served in the U.S. Navy, living in places like San Diego and Japan, and his service allowed him to exotic places like Hong Kong and Maldives
Tom moved to Oregon in 1997 where he worked for an Internet Service Provider and an Electronic Transactions company until he retired in 2009, then moved to a small mountain town in California in 2011.
Tom is still active in Masonry: Life member of Holbrook Lodge as well as Acacia Court (Amaranth) and Tualatin Chapter (OES), in Hillsboro, OR; member of the Tehachapi Chapter (OES) in Cummings Valley and soon to be a member of Tehachapi Lodge. He will be a dual member because he does not want to let go of his home Lodge.
