THOMAS G. KRACH age 59. Tom, (a.k.a. Big “T”) lived a full and happy life. Tom grew up in the suburbs of Cleveland with his parents, John and Elaine, as well as his four siblings—Mark, Johnny, Karen, and Jan. He graduated from Bowling Green State University in 1983, earning his Bachelor of Science in Accounting. He excelled in his career as a financial advisor, working at Prudential from 1983 to 1997 and New York Life from 1997 to 2020. Tom met his wife, Michelle, in 1989, which was the beginning of almost 30 laughter and loved-filled years of marriage. He was the proud and devoted father of two children, Tommy (28) and Megan (26), and his many fur babies throughout the years—Buttons, Casey, Winston, Max, Zoey, Louie, and Lily,
Tom enjoyed spending time with his family, whether it was taking their yearly road trips to Hilton Head Island, visiting his extended family for many memory-filled celebrations, or hanging around the house with his wife and children. In his free time, he loved traveling, gardening, and riding his bike with his wife.
Over the years, Tom brought smiles and laughter to everyone he met. He could make friends with anyone he met and engage in long conversations. Tom was an extremely hard-working person and prided himself on helping support his family. Although Tom left us too soon, he left knowing he was loved and cared for by many.
