Tommy worked many years as an independent maintenance contractor. There wasn’t anything that he couldn’t fix and if he couldn’t fix it, he would give you a rigged-up job like no other!!
He was the founder of the House of Colors MC/SC in 1995 where he became affectionately known as “Mr. B”. and his wife known as “Lady B”. They ran the House of Colors MC/SC from 1995-2014.
Tommy loved his family and especially loved spending time with his grandkids and great grandkids. Riding his motorcycle was his passion. Tommy lived and enjoyed life to the fullest. The Frank Sinatra song “My Way” pretty much sums up his life because he always did things HIS WAY or NO WAY! He will be deeply missed by his family and friends.
*At Tommy’s request, there will be a viewing but no service. After the viewing friends and family are welcome to have words, share memories, etc. if they desire. There will be a processional to the cemetery that will pass by his motorcycle that will be parked in front of his home. Please honk your horns as you pass his motorcycle as a sendoff.
