Tom Mason

Devoted husband, father and friend to many, Tom Mason, 64, of Sac City passed away suddenly on Saturday, May 29, 2021, at Loring Hospital in Sac City. Thomas Glenn Mason was born on Dec. 23, 1956, the only child to parents James and Ruth (Zimmerman) Mason in Sac City. He was delivered by Dr. C.D. Gibson, the father of his future wife. He grew up in Sac City where he attended grade school and graduated from Sac Community High School with the class of 1975. Tom continued his education at DMACC in Ankeny, where he studied mechanical drafting. Sadly, in his early twenties, Tom was diagnosed with stage 4 Hodgkin’s Lymphoma, but he was not about to let that hold him back. After being treated with chemotherapy and radiation, he went into full remission. This is a testament to the strength of Tom’s brave spirit and tenacity.

BGS Wraps: Tom Mason, “Little Elvis, King of the Elves”

In Their Words: “The holidays are all about nostalgia, and what could be [more] nostalgic than Elvis? As a kid I’d stare longingly at the guitars in catalogues. When I got older, my first traveling gig was with an Elvis impersonator, so I suppose I have a soft spot for the King. I imagined ‘Little Elvis’ as an elfin Elvis impersonator on a cartoon Christmas special we’d see as kids, watching in our pajamas just before going off to bed to dream of the arrival of Christmas. In these crazy, splintered times I wanted to make a holiday CD that was fun and inclusive, focusing on the joyful aspects of the season. I set out to write new songs that would tap into the nostalgia of the holidays. If ever I doubted a song wasn’t Christmas-y enough, there was a simple solution: more sleigh bells!” — Tom Mason.
