Thomas Alfred Strausbaugh
June 12, 1940 ‒ July 06, 2020
Thomas Alfred (Tim) Strausbaugh, 80 years young, of Sunbury Ohio peacefully transitioned on the morning of July 6th, 2020.
Tom was born to June and Herbert Strausbaugh on June 12th, 1940 in Chillicothe Ohio. He graduated from Catholic Central of Chillicothe in 1958 and also attended Ohio University in Chillicothe for the studies of History.
Tom went to work for the US Postal Service from 1963 to 1970 and then went on to the US Postal Inspection Service as a highly respected Postal Inspector from 1970 until his retirement in 1990. Tom then went on to join the Nevada Attorney General’s Office in 1993 and retired from there in 2003 as a Senior Investigator in the Insurance Fraud Unit. He was also a member of The Fraternal Order of Police in Van Wert Ohio, where he worked diligently in helping to solve the murder of a postal employee.
Tom was awarded numerous accolades for his outstanding and hard work with all of the above employments. He was well respected and loved by all of his family, friends, employers, and co-workers throughout his career and life. He went above and beyond in whatever he set out to do.
Tom is survived by his wife and best friend of 34 years, Linda Strausbaugh, along with their beloved dogs, Lainey, Chewy and Gracie Mae, who all miss him and love him very much.
He is also survived by his children, Kelly Strausbaugh, Tim Strausbaugh and Mike Strausbaugh; and his grandchildren, Anthony, Parker, Avery and Devyn who he loved very much.
Tom will be so missed by everyone who knew him. He leaves a great void in all of our lives.
One of his most loved and favorite places to go in this life was Jamaica. He loved sitting on the beach drinking Rum Cream and partying with many great friends there. This will be his final resting place one day along with a celebration of his life. We were all so blessed to have him in our lives.
A special quote from a special friend of ours, Rosie. Thank you.
Grief never ends……but it changes.
It’s a passage not a place to stay.
Grief is not a sign of weakness, nor a lack of faith…
It’s the price of Love.
