Throughout Tommy’s many years as a business
and civic leader, he worked tirelessly,
with Mary Frances’ support, to establish a

has been credited as being one of the most
influential persons in the region for bringing
the University of South Florida to Fort Myers,
as well as Florida Gulf Coast University.
In addition to his highly visible community
work, Tommy was a successful business
leader, holding the position of President and
Chief Executive Officer of First Federal Savings
and Loan Association.
