We knew Tommy for many years. We remember his quiet passion for turning his hand to difficult tasks, and doing superior work. He could build a sturdy vehicle from seemingly diverse parts, craft or remodel almost any structure, and much of his handiwork is still present at OxBow Farm.

A man of the modern world who maintained and practiced old-world skills.
