He was born in Sheridan, MI on September 26, 1960 to his parents Dale and Shirley Signs.  He was raised in Edmore, MI with his siblings. He graduated from Montabella High School in 1979.  Tom worked at Printco in Greenville, MI for 13 years. He lived in Nashville, TN for 15 years continuing to work in the printing industry.  A time came when a change of pace was needed and Tom then worked in the boating-marina business for 10 years.

Tom is survived by his loving family. Wife: Lorraine Dodge; Daughter: Leah Signs;  Stepsons: Brigham Anglea, Jason Woodworth and David Woodworth;  Parent: Shirley Signs;  Brothers: Richard (Dianne) Signs, David (Beth) Signs, Michael Signs, Darren (Rhonda) Signs, Darrin Dodge; Sister: Terry (Peter) Depka; Nieces and nephews: Heather Signs, Tuleisha Signs, Jenny Gough, Karla Signs, Grace Clark, Hannah Dodge, Joey Depka, and Ryan Signs.

Special thanks and love to his friends and co-workers at Block Imaging in Holt, MI and Bee’s Sporting Goods in St. Johns, MI; Their support and love through this cancer battle has been amazing.

Tom was a loving man and cherished his family, and he will be looking down over them.  He loved the outdoors, boating, hiking, back-packing, camping, and being at the beach.  He loved the open road whether it was going on a road trip to anywhere or on his motorcycle, riding down the shores of Lake Michigan with his brothers or rolling thru the hills of TN with his motorcycle chapter.

Memorial services will be held February 10th 2014 at Trinity Church, 3355 Dunckel Rd. in Lansing, MI 48911. Visitation will be at 11:00 a.m., Service at 12:00 p.m. and a luncheon immediately following after. In lieu of flowers please make donations to Hospice of Lansing -Stoneleigh Residence in memory of Tom Signs.

    Leah – Your father and our good friend, Tom, was an amazing individual. He was like a brother to me and Mimsi, like a son to my Dad and Mom, a respected and revered friend to so many. Truly one of the best men I’ve had the good fortune to know in my lifetime. He was loved dearly and will be truly missed.
    Love, Brig & Mimsi
