Tom was a kind gentleman who loved everyone he met and was especially close to his church family. The family would like to thank the Alliance Visiting Nurses/Hospice for their tender loving care during his illness, and to his many friends for all they did for him and his spouse during this difficult time. A warm thank you to Dr. Simmons and nurse, Emily, for their wonderful care.

Services will be held at 1 p.m. Wednesday at Harvest Baptist Church, 5501 State Route 45, Lisbon, Ohio, five miles south of Salem, with the Revs. Ronald Laughlin and Doug Demar officiating. Calling hours will be held from 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. at the church prior to the service.
