Tom and Helen spent a large part of their life together in Colton, NY running their Grocery store. He especially looked forward to his morning coffee with friends, and lets be honest, his golf outings! After moving to Florida, he enjoyed visiting with his family on his front porch and spending weekends at their camping lot in Salt Springs, FL. He cherished his time spent with his grandchildren, his weekends hunting at camp with the boys, family reunions and anything that involved time with family.

A Celebration of life in his honor will be held in South Colton, NY June 2, 2019, at John Briggs’ camp.

Memorial donations can be made to the American Diabetes Foundation.
