Tom worked for several years and retired from Bob Evans Farms as a meat processor and had a dairy farm for a period of time. He was known as a hard worker in all the tasks he performed. Tom enjoyed his family and his favorite things to do were to spend time with his kids and grandkids, with whom he shared a special bond with each of them. Tom was a member of Vinton Baptist Church for many years where he served as a Deacon, as well as a Trustee. He has enjoyed all his time at Vinton Baptist Church with all of the wonderful friends that God has blessed him with.

He also has several wonderful nephews and nieces, that have been a blessing to him.

Along with his parents, Tom is preceded in death by one sibling, Paul Ragan, formerly of Wellston, Ohio.
