Thomas was born in Troy, Vt., Jan. 16, 1939, the son of the late Arah and Alice Dunn (Field). He graduated from Hardwick Academy in 1957, before enlisting in the United States Army in 1958, serving until his discharge in 1961. Following his discharge from the Army, he met and married Geneva (Bouchard) in 1963. Tom and Geneva were married for 41 years, until her death in 2004. Tom worked locally before deciding to continue his education at Lyndon State College, where he graduated in 1975. Following his graduation from college, he went on to work as a substance abuse counselor for Washington County Mental Health, eventually leaving to form Apple Counseling in Barre. He ultimately retired in 2003 and went on to work as a bus driver for Wildcat Busing, often calling it the best job he ever had.
