He was born in the Sidney area to Dolly and Peter Stordahl, June 14, 1948. He attended school in Fairview before his family moved to Billings, Mont., where he completed his education.

Tom met Dixie Cowan in Billings and they married June 13, 1970, in Loring. When Dixie graduated from EMC, they moved to Whitewater, where Tom was employed as bus maintenance. He spent many years working with his father-in-law farming, doing carpentry, and trucking.
