During Tom's career, he built campers for trucks with his brother Jim; designed, built, and sold furniture; and built fishing planers for his favorite hobby. He loved fishing for walleye and perch and was known to his friends as the “The Eye Guy." Tom was also a Ham Radio Operator throughout his life: licensed at age 12, he took over his father’s call letters of "W8LKE" and even taught and proctored new generations of Ham Radio Operators.
