I am a native of Michigan City, IN and graduated from M.C. Rogers High School in 1982. I attended Vincennes University and graduated in 1986 and passed my National Board exam at that time. I served my internship in Washington, IN. and became a licensed funeral director in 1987. I moved to Garrett, IN in 1988 and worked at another funeral home until 1998 when we built and opened Thomas Funeral Home.

I married Tina Marie (Fetter) in 1989 and we have 2 very busy daughters, Lauren and Taylor. I am a member of the Garrett Lions, Garrett Rotary, and 4th Degree Knights of Columbus. I am a board member of the Garrett Chamber Of Commerce, D.A.R.E., DeKalb County Heart Association and the Garrett Public Library Foundation.

I enjoy attending my daughters activities and ALL high school sporting events, collecting sports memorabilia and playing in charity golf events.
