Tom was born on May 11, 1946, in Kansas City, MO, son of Alfred A. and Hilda (Weiland) Leick.
Tom was a Vietnam veteran, who went back to Vietnam every day in his mind. He was a member of the Tri-State Vietnam Vets Association, AARP, St. Anthony's Church and a charter member of Taskforce Omega. Tom spent hours tinkering around fixing things. He was employed as an over-the-road truck driver for over 20 years, until his retirement in 2007. Later in life, Tom married his true love of over thirty years, Constance Lea "Connie" Murphy Stogdill on February 18, 2009, in Las Vegas, NV. He was "reborn" to live a very loving, happy and "adventurous" life with Connie. They loved traveling together. Tom was loved and adored by his family and friends and will be deeply missed by all who knew him.
