He graduated from Northwest Classen High School in 1957 before attending Oklahoma City University.

During his career he worked in several cities including Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Cache, Oklahoma, Lawton, Oklahoma and Duncan, Oklahoma.
After retiring from banking, he spent his time volunteering most notably at the University of Central Oklahoma in the Math and Science Department.

Seems like yesterday that the four cousins, Tommy, Jerry, Mary Ruth and Harriet were playing cops and robbers and cowboys and Indians. I’m so glad I got to talk to Tommy recently and reconnect. I know he was a wonderful husband and father and will be terribly missed. Glenda, Sabrina and Faith Mary, you are much in my thoughts and prayers. The wonderful memories will carry you through your time of grief. Love, Harriet
