Tom Somerville - Operations Manager

Tom Somerville

In Memoriam
1941-2017

Tom joined ReStore in 2005 after working in retail management for 40 years in several large organizations including WalMart and TG&Y/McCrory.  His previous roles provided Tom with multiple layers of expertise in both merchandise sales and the art of pricing.  Tom used this knowledge base daily when selecting items for ReStore displays, communicating with donors and volunteers, when scheduling staff, and arranging pick-up and delivery routes for large items.

Our beloved Tom passed away on September 2, 2017. He will truly be missed by the Habitat Cabarrus/ReStore staff, board members, volunteers and supporters. His jovial spirit and impact on our organization and community will never be forgotten.

Education:
B.A. Business Administration from Ohio University (Go Bobcats!)

Hometown:
Martins Ferry, Ohio

Tom and his lovely wife Therese have two children: Heather and Jason and are proud grandparents to three. 

Favorite Part of working for ReStore:
I’ve worked in the two previous locations of our local ReStore.  I really appreciate how loyal our customers are and to be part of this great community.

Loves cheering for:

Favorite place to visit:
Rome, Italy.  My mother is originally from an Italian village names Capo Daqua so the region really speaks to me.  I love to travel and lived in Japan for several years.  While living in Asia, I took the opportunity to see as much of the area as possible.
