Tom was a 1968 graduate of Keyser High School and a 1972 graduate of Tri-State Beauty Academy. He worked as the owner-operator of TC Originals, Hairstylist, in Keyser from 1974 until retiring in May 2011. He had many long term patrons and formed close relationships with them. They were like his family. He greatly missed all those patrons who went before him. He and Kathy married in October 1977 and had two sons who were raised on C Street in Keyser, where their backyard was a “Paradise” due to Tom’s talent for gardening and landscaping. Tom was a great father and loved his kids and grandkids with all his heart. He will be deeply missed by all. Our sincere thanks and appreciation to Dr. Zalzal, Joy, Ann and Destiny for caring for Tom during his illness. Thanks also to the employees at Potomac Valley Hospital for their care.
