Thomas Rulon Osmond was born on the 26th October 1947 to George and Olive Osmond. The second of the nine Osmond children, Tom is the brother of: Virl, Alan, Wayne, Merrill, Jay, Donny, Marie and Jimmy Osmond.
Tom and his older brother Virl were born deaf and did not perform with their siblings. They eventually learned how to play several instruments and in later years made occasional appearances with their brothers and sister, most notably the Christmas specials from the 70′s and early 80′s.
Tom and his brother Virl were the first deaf missionaries set out from the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints.
Tom has worked for the United States Postal Service for the past 25 years and currently works at the post office in Epraim, Utah.
