The pair lives in a remote area of Montana’s Yaak Valley, fifty miles from the nearest grocery store. They had decided to move here when Tom was thirty-five-years-old, and Nancy was thirty-years-old.  

With almost half a century of togetherness, many speculated that the couple would have children. But, they have never revealed about having children. 

However, Tom had two children from his past relationship.

Children With Ex-Spouse

Tom was previously in a relationship with Jan Frazer. The couple had welcomed a son Chad Oar and a daughter Keelie Oar (born 14 February 1966). 

But the pair called off their relationship, and Tom married his wife, Nancy, while Jan married her husband, David Frazer.

Talking about his son, Chad Oar, he lives with his partner Kim Burnette in St. Pete, Florida. He sometimes makes an appearance with his father in the Show' Mountain Men.   

What Is Tom Oar's Net Worth?

The American Tanner and former rodeo star Tom Oar is a reality television personality. He was first introduced to the show by his friend Tim Linehan, who knew a film production rep. By this time, Tom has a large number of fans and followers.

Far from the hustle of modern life, the couple enjoys their life tanning animal hides and creating traditional buckskin moccasins, shirts, pants, and jackets.

You will be surprised to know that Tom and Nancy lived their first 17 years in the west without any electricity or running water. 

When asked about how the show has changed his life, To said-

“The show hasn’t changed me so far to any great degree. I do get more orders than I ever have before. I could never keep up with all the business we’ve got in the past year. When we make a jacket or a buckskin pair of pants, it’s all hand-sewn. We don’t use a sewing machine.”

Tom and his wife have a net worth of $200 thousand.
