Tommy sailed from Ireland to the United States in 1954 where he traveled to Michigan and started working as a plasterer with Local 67. He sent for Elizabeth, married June 11, 1956, and settled in Detroit to raise their family. Tommy was an avid Tigers' fan and loved to listen to the games while tending to his large rose garden. He was a very active retiree who was always willing to lend a helping hand to his children and neighbors with any home improvement project. His quiet manner, quick wit, and infectious laugh was loved by all who had the pleasure of calling him Dad, Gramps or G-Dawg, Brother, Uncle, and friend.
