Tom began his career at the age of 14 with Gorges Meats in Harlingen and continued to work for them for 10 years. For the next 45 years he worked at several other food sales business as a salesman. His last position was the Performance Food Groups where he retired in February of this year. During the first cold front, Tom loved to make chili.
