WARREN, Ohio (MyValleyTributes) – Thomas Adam Spuhler, 84, passed on Monday February 3, 2020, in Siesta Key, Florida. Thomas was enjoying his winter in a place he held so dear, when he lost his three-year battle to cancer.
Born in Massillon, Ohio on October 4, 1935 to Miles and Billie Spuhler (Speakman), he was the first of three children.
Thomas is preceded in death by his late brother, Robert Miles Spuhler
He is survived by his sister, Janice Sue Spuhler; his special niece, Diane Lennon and the love of his life, Betty Jane Spuhler (Bupp).
Married 64 years, Thomas and Betty enjoyed many memories together, especially the birth of their two sons, Blake Alan Spuhler and Bret Adam Spuhler.
Among Tom’s favorite activities, spending time with his six grandchildren and 15 great-grandchildren was very dear to his heart. Traveling with their motor home, Thomas and Betty enjoyed taking their grandchildren on trips with only one rule, they had to be potty trained.
Thomas was a master craftsman who specialized in woodworking and would create beautiful pieces for his church and cradles for each of his grandchildren. Always fixing things and being as efficient as possible in everything he did were just a couple of Thomas’ endearing and admirable traits. Thomas’ sense of humor was unmatched and people enjoyed his company and his conversation.
