He was born July 13, 1958, in Ypsilanti, Mich., the child of Vern Tessier and the late Kathleen Freidhoff Tessier.
Tom graduated from Rochester Adams High School in Michigan in 1976, where he excelled in art. He moved to Colorado several years later to work in construction and felt he had found a home in the Rocky Mountains. His skill for finish carpentry led him to specialize in installing kitchen cabinets, and later his eye for design led him to designing kitchens for his longtime employer, Thurston Kitchen & Bath. While in Vail Valley, he developed close friendships with most of Vail Valley's best contractors and created loyal followers of his wit, talent and commitment in the construction/design businesses here locally. Tom will be greatly missed».
