Thomas (Tom) J.

After leaving the Air Force, he attended The Ohio State University majoring in business. Tom went on to work as the candy buyer for Lazarus for 25 years, and, after retirement, established Devine Foods, a gourmet foods brokerage. He loved boating, fishing, playing cards, family vacations, animals, and all sports, especially his Buckeyes.  While we will miss Tom’s mastery of the chicken dance and his penchant for Dr. Seuss quotes and limericks, he will long be remembered for his warmth and keen sense of humor.
