Knowing he would be drafted he joined the US Navy in 1950, served on the USS Picking a Navy Destroyer and saw the world during the Korean war. He served 2 years and returned home. He received an honorable discharge June 1954. He then felt the Lord call him and became a Franciscan Brother for 2 yrs. Tom started a career in the printing industry from which he retired. We all know God calls the shots and thru his divine intervention & providence Tom met Shirley. Shirley was a Sister of St. Joseph for about 5yrs. What are the odds Brother meets and marries a Nun? At some point he became an AVID St. Louis Cardinal baseball fan. I would send him a Cardinal schedule every year so he could cheer them on. Beloved husband of Shirley Ann (Self) Owens. Brother of Eileen Bertani, uncle, brother-in-law and cousin. Tom was a loving, caring man dedicated to the Lord and truly loved Shirley. He had a gr8 sense of humor and could really make U laugh. He treated people with dignity & respect. He loved life and is now in the arms of Our Lord. My dearest love, I hope and pray that we will meet again in our heavenly home.
