In 1987 he moved from Irving, Texas to Seven Points, Texas, where he was a member of the Seven Points City Counsel for almost 30 years and had an auto shop in Gun Barrel City, Texas for 25 years. In addition to his interest in cars Tommy greatly enjoyed his many grandchildren and great grandchildren.

We will be getting together up in town in Seven Points to celebrate our father's life on Sunday, April 14th, 12 - 3pm. We would invite everyone that has known him over the years to come out to share in this event. Because this is a celebration, we will eat, drink, laugh, and probably cry a little...and tell stories of Tommy's antics. He led a big life, so let's send him off in a big way. We will have brisket and fixins. We're asking everyone to bring a side or dessert to share.
