Tom was a devout Catholic and lifetime member of St. Augustine Church in Barberton.  He was a Eucharistic Minister, Lector, member of the Holy Hour Program, and catechetical teacher. When he was a student at St. Augustine School, he began serving Mass, many times beginning his school day walking from his west side Barberton home to serve 6:00 a.m. Mass with Msgr. Schmitz.  As an adult Tom took great pride in the Adult Altar Server Ministry at the parish. He was responsible for serving and scheduling adult servers for the 8:00 a.m. Sunday Mass, scheduling servers and serving at the altar for all funerals at St. Augustine Church.  For many years, Tom was a daily Mass attendee.
