Tom and Dawn we’re introduced by a mutual friend in September 2005 while Tom was visiting Austin, Tx to attend “Austin City Limits Music Festival” and the two met. They both loved music and this brought them together, changing his life forever. They were married in 2006 and their daughter Emma Jane was born later that year. Tom, Dawn, Megan and Emma moved to Olathe, Kansas in 2007. In 2017 Kent Worden married Megan and became part of his family. Grandson Chase was born in February 2021. He loved his family and was very proud.
Tom enjoyed living life and spending time with family and friends. Some of his passions were fishing, Formula One Racing, Raiders Football, cooking (Dawn was his sous chef), Beer (IPA’s) and always looking for a new beer to try. Music was a love for both Tom and Dawn. They attended many concerts together and enjoyed going back to Austin to celebrate their first meeting at the “ACL” festival.
