Tom was born in South Florida on November 9, 1953. He attended the University of Florida where he met his wife, Betty (Elizabeth) and earned his degree in Accounting. He is survived by his wife, Betty, two daughters: Meredith (Camille) Oostwegel and Allison (Aaren) Riley, and three grandsons: Spencer and Winston Oostwegel, and Sawyer Riley; as well as his brother Gene (Jean) Stark and sister Patricia Stark.
