Dear family,

In 1972, when relocating to Springboro, Dr. “TC” became my family physician until his retirement schedule. He was not only an excellent physician but a genuinely caring person who knew you beyond his practice. You would feel heartened when he recognized you and would take the time to chat whenever he saw you in the community. The Boro’s positive spirit and growth continues due to his kindness. We have lost the one who founded a medical practice that became SureCare.

Joey, Janie, Brian, Joanne, Daniel-so very sorry to learn of your Dad’s passing. So many memories (I was the first patient he ever gave rabie shots to) when Mom worked with him. I know your memories will sustain you through your grief. I will be thinking of all of you in the coming days.
