Tom and Dottie were the first persons we met at the Eaton Church of the Brethren when we visited that church for the first time in the summer of 1979. They were seated in the pew right in front of us and made us feel like so welcome. Must have worked as we have been there ever since!! Tom was such a sweet spirited man who was such a joy to be around. We are so sorry for your loss as a family and yet we know that he has heard the words of Jesus, Well done, good and faithful servant. Enter into the joy of your Master! May that joy also be yours in the midst of your loss. Martin and Debbie Peacock

So sorry to hear of your Dad's passing. He was a true man of God. Wayne took me to your home to visit your Mom & Dad right after John & I moved back to Eaton. I will be praying for you all as you transition into a "new" normal. I treasure our last visit at Frisch's. God Bless you all, Sunnye Gardner-Jones

We would like to offer our condolences and prayers to the family. Tom was truly a man who loved the Lord and daily demonstrated his devotion to Him. He was always happy and courteous to everyone with whom he came into contact. He had such pleasure in traveling with the teams going to Africa and enjoyed sharing those experiences with us upon his return. He will be greatly missed. Bob and Dianna Thomas

Rick & I will always remember Tom in church who sat behind us and always had something funny to say! One of my fondest memories of Tom is see in him wearing his Ohio state wrestling sweater from back in the day... And it still fit!
