    Tom played some pro football after graduating from Michigan. After that, he took a job as athletic director for the Detroit police department. He appraised real estate and lived in Dearborn, Michigan for many years. His wife Monica, taught school at Clara Bryant Junior High School in Dearborn until retirement. Tom never lacked for confidence, held strong opinions on many topics, and held forth on those opinions with gusto. A picture of the five brothers taken in their 40s shows shows four tall reasonably trim men, and Tom a few inches shorter and wider than the others, but not fat. He was athletic into middle age. Eventually Tom bought out the other family members and lived on the S.B. Anway farm from the late sixties until his death. While living there, he wrote a column for the local paper called "The Old Crab."
