Tom and Judy founded Cape Communications in Cape Girardeau, Mo. in 1977 and retired together July 1, 2004. In 2005 they moved to Cumming, Georgia. Tom loved cruising the Tennessee and Cumberland rivers on his boat "Blue Highways", therefore he invested in Moon Bay Harbor Resort, a community of caring, supportive nature lovers.

Tom supported Navigators ministry for 30 years, his daughters spent many summers at their camps, serving, learning and teaching young people how to walk in the ways of our Lord Jesus Christ and not the ways of this world.
Okay, as Tom always said, Judy "This is no hill for a climber".
