Tom moved to Scottville in 1965 with his family when they purchased Anderson’s Nursery and Greenhouses on North Main Street and helped his parents operate the nursery until it closed.  He worked several different jobs around the area, most recently with Nickelson’s Needlefast Nursery in Ludington.  You could usually find Tom riding around in or working on his beloved Dodge truck.
