Thomas was born on January 31, 1934 to Edward R. and Elizabeth (Kothe) Mahoney in St. Charles Township. He served in the United States Army from 1955 to 1957. Thomas married Julia M.

During his life, Thomas was very active in his community. He was a member of the Knights of Columbus where he held many different offices, including past Grand Knight. He was responsible for supplying Amigo mobile scooters to disabled veterans at the Saginaw VA.

Tom and his wife were past Grand Marshalls of the Showboat parade. Thomas was also a master craftsman and talented woodworker and clockmaker. He was a survivor of male breast cancer.
