Meet the New Lake Ogemaw Marina Owners
A familiar face at our marina, Tom Forton is taking on a new role as the owner of the marina. Joining Tom as owner and partner is Toni, his fiance who will be helping part-time in their new adventure. Tom and Toni are life-long residents of Ogemaw County. Tom grew up less than a mile from the marina and began his career there in 1996. He took a detour into law enforcement and spent the next 10 years as a deputy sheriff in Ogemaw and Josco counties. He rejoined the marina in 2011. Toni will also present a familiar face to many of our customers, as she has been a nurse on the surgical unit of West Branch Regional Medical Center since 1993 when she began her nursing career after graduating from Kirtland Community College. She also moonlights with Serenity Home Healthcare. Tom and Toni are very excited about their new adventure and look forward to celebrating with you next spring when they host a grand re-opening. Stay tuned for details.
