He will be cremated and his remains brought back to Minnesota where he was originally from. There will be a military service with burial at Ft Snelling in Minneapolis this spring. I will forward details when we have them.

Tom's son, Tom Jr., would love to hear by phone or email, from any friends or Marines who served or knew his father.
