Thomas graduated Dutchtown High School in 1940. He served in the United States Coast Guard, Seaman 2nd Class during WWII. He was Honorably Discharged on April 4, 1946.

He was a jack of all trades who could build or repair anything that he put his mind to. During one of the strikes at Shell to make ends meet, he started selling and delivering fresh eggs in Norco and New Sarpy and became known as the “Eggman”. He loved to cook, hunt, square dance, going to as many Mardi Gras parades as possible, but most of all Family gatherings.

In 1948, he married Betty M. Simon and they had five sons, Thomas III, Jimmy, Glen, Dan, and Bob.
