In Saskatoon he was fortunate to have many long term friendships and considered many of these friends to be a part of his extended family. He also worked multiple jobs in Saskatoon: a meat cutter, janitorial, odd jobs and even his own window washing company. Tom found pleasure in watching football and cheering on the Montreal Canadiens, going to concerts and joining a group of friends who met regularly for coffee at Robins. As a younger man he enjoyed baseball and was an umpire. He had a "windmill" pitch and was known to break a few windows. Tom was a very friendly man with a big heart who cherished his independence. He never forgot a face or a name.
