Returning from the war he began a long career at Liebel-Flarsheim Company working himself up from a draftsman to Materials Manger and at the same time attending The University of Cincinnati on the GI bill. He was the first person in his family to graduate from college. He helped his sister and brother – in – law start a business from the ground up and then took over that business when they retired. He grew the business, Casco Manufacturing Solutions, into a multimillion-dollar business still going strong today.
Tom was a true “Renaissance Man”. He continued his educated his entire life. He was self-taught in many areas. He studied engineering and gardening; design and art; music and photography. He was always encouraging his family to do the same. His entire life centered round his family from the time he was a small boy through the time be became a father then a grandfather. He will be sorely missed.
