After marrying, the couple moved to Lansing, Michigan, and then to Seattle, Washington for Tom’s career. They spent 15 years in the Pacific Northwest, raising their family and enjoying the beautiful outdoors. Ultimately, they returned to Tuscarawas County where Tom continued his professional career with Gradall, retiring as a Product Manager.
