He loved his antique vehicles, cruising in his Camaro and driving his pick-up in the Johnstown Halloween Parade. Tom enjoyed racing, hunting and making the best deer jerky around. He loved spending time with his grandsons, working on cars or driving his tractor. Tom fought a long battle with cancer, but never let it stop him from doing the things he loved.
