Thomas Barrows was a graduate of Philips Academy, Andover and of Massachusetts Institute of Technology. He served with the Combat Engineers, 106 Infantry Division, in WWII where he fought in the Battle of the Bulge. After returning home, he began working for the Shepard and Morse Lumber Company and went on to become president.

He was a keen racer, not only on the "Irondiquoit II" with his grandfather, but also as skipper of his own yacht "Windrush."

He will be greatly missed by his family and friends.
