Age 59, passed from this world into God's eternal love and grace on March 8, 2013, after a tough battle with liver cancer. He was born in Akron on May 25, 1953, and is survived by his loving wife, Maria; parents, Bob and Jane; sister, Kathy; and was predeceased by his sister, Diane. Tom grew up in Ohio, Mexico, Colombia, and Germany due to his father's assignments with International BFGoodrich. He served in the Air Force after high school. Tom graduated from KSU with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing. He retired from the Heartland Behavioral Center as a Registered Psychiatric Nurse after 30 years of service. Upon retirement in 2007 to Winter Park, Fla., he married Maria Madsen, whom he met when the two families lived in Bogota, Colombia. He continued his career until 2012 at the Florida Hospital Behavioral Center. His patients' testimony gave evidence of his compassionate, diligent and kind-hearted care. Tom had a loving heart and a respect for life. He will be missed by all who had the privilege of knowing him.
