The father of three sons, all Fitchburg High graduates, who played on Crocker Field, Tom spent thirty-eight years in the Fitchburg School
system as a teacher, coach, principal, assistant superintendent, and
superintendent, retiring in 2005. He helped re-establish the Crocker Field Restoration organization as a non-profit because as superintendent of the Fitchburg Public Schools he realized the
difficulty in maintaining this great facility for future generations
without major investments of public funding. A graduate of Fitchburg
State College, Tom is currently an educational consultant. He lives in Fitchburg with his wife Christine.
