Tom Dickey isn’t your average 41-year old. Sure, for 21-years he gets up to go to work at the local grocery store, he loves sports (he can quote you the NFL schedule for his favorite teams), he goes to church every Sunday, and he loves his family with all of his heart. But, there’s something more to Tom Dickey.
When you meet Tom ‘Cruise’ as he likes to be called, you’ll never forget him. He’s like the coolest kid at the party, but he doesn’t have to try. He has an electric, engaging personality that is impossible to ignore. He treats everyone he meets with respect and kindness. He’s a bonafide entertainer and comedian. I wouldn’t be surprised if we’re all watching Tom on TV some day. He’s that special.
But, there’s some things Tom can’t do, and somethings he had never done. Tom can’t eat seafood (we learned this after our fishing trip), Tom does not like heights, and Tom had never caught a fish. We wanted to change that – with a twist. We wanted to have him catch his first ever fish LIVE so everyone could experience the moment with him and more people could see first-hand just how awesome he truly is. Mission accomplished.
Thank you Tom ‘Cruise’ Dickey for all that you have done for everyone that you’ve made laugh, feel special, and inspired for 41 years.
