He then earned his master of business degree at Illinois State University in Bloomington, IL. Tom married his high school sweetheart, Annette Book, in 1977. They lived 41 wonderful years together. His banking career took him to Peoria, IL, then to Dallas, TX, and then to the Kansas City area where spent the last 30 years. He was a dedicated, loving father to his two daughters, Katherine and Susan. He truly lived for his children and selflessly wanted the best for them. He loved organizing family events, to Estes Park, CO, for more than 25 years, to carry on the tradition his father set in place. His favorite past time was spending time with those that he loved and cherished most.
