Tom was the owner/operator of Hillcrafter’s, Winfield Marina, California Imports and Madhatter’s Comedy Club. He has left a legacy of amazing feats of engineering along the Lake Erie shoreline. Tom had a true passion for life. He was the embodiment of love. He was a kind and loving husband, father and grandfather. He showed all he knew what unconditional love really was. Tom could be found whistling while he worked on his numerous tractors, backhoes and cranes. He was a true water baby, scuba diving, fishing, swimming and boating, a master floater. It seemed nothing could stop him from smiling, hence his nick name “Smiling Tom”. Tom’s true love was his wife of 56 years who passed on their anniversary, August 26th 2021. His smile, twinkling eyes, laughter and whistle will always be fondly remembered.
