OBITUARY

Thomas Paul Wuebben

17 May, 193311 February, 2021

Thomas Paul Wuebben, our Uncle Tom, was no ordinary man. He was a special person, and a strong disciple of his Catholic faith. He was passionate and devoted as evidenced by his daily church attendance and how he lived his life.

Tom was the youngest of six children of Frank and Odelia Wuebben, born May 17, 1933 in the City of Dayton. He graduated from Chaminade High School, class of 1950 and he attended the University of Dayton, where he acquired a degree in Electrical Technology.

Tom honored his country with a commitment and enlistment into the United States Air Force in 1951. He was a Radio Repairman. He served in South Korea during the Korean Conflict, where he earned the Korean Service Medal. He was Honorably Discharged in 1955.

Tom went to work for the United States Government at the Wright Patterson Air Force Base. His long 31 year career as a Logistics Management Specialist spanned from 1956 until his retirement in 1987.

Tom was a loving and dedicated man especially to his mother. When she became widowed in 1965, Tom took her into his own home, cared for and provided for her until her death in 1982. Tom was good to his five brothers and sisters as well as being generous and giving to his many nieces and nephews.

Tom enjoyed woodworking and painting. He would spend hours in his workshop making and creating many remarkable arts and crafts, mostly from wood. Anyone who was the recipient of one of his projects lovingly treasured that design because it was handmade with care by a skilled and talented craftsman.

Lastly, our uncle was an exceptional man and human being. Tom prayed and walked with the Lord daily. That was his devotion and worshiping of his Catholic faith. Tom was a lifelong bachelor, having never married. He gave his love to his Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. Tom took on a special mission and task by making rosaries daily for hours on end. Over his lifetime he tediously handmade over 30,000 rosaries and sent them to missionaries all over the world right up until the time of his passing. Tom was a simple and humble man. Although he earned financial wealth, he strongly believed in not spending the money on himself, or acquiring material possessions. Instead, he recognized many charities and missions, and faithfully donated to those causes helping the poor and less fortunate. Tom was a role model to all those who knew him. He will indeed be missed by many.

Tom is survived by many nieces and nephews.

A Mass of Christian Burlal will be held on Saturday, February 27, 2021, at 11:00 a.m. from The Church of the Incarnation, 7415 Far Hills Avenue, Centerville, Ohio 45459. Tom's final resting place will be in Calvary Cemetery with his mother.
