Tom, nicknamed “Poppa” by his granddaughter Shyanne, has lived in Canowindra for 13 years. He moved back here after living in the Gooloogong area because he’s always loved country town living and working and likes the small community atmosphere. Tom is a self-employed builder at Central West Building Services, he has been in the building game for 34 years. His business specialises in renovations and maintenance.
Tom has a daughter and two grandkids who also live in the town. He starts his day with four or five cups of coffee whilst going over the paperwork. In his spare time he enjoys looking after his grandchildren and taking his boat up to Wyangala Dam.
Tom’s worst habit is picking Saint George’s Dragons to win and they lose. He shows his support by the giant flagpole of their flag out the front of his house.
