Thomas L. “Tom” Weiler

June 24, 1949 ‒ February 27, 2007

Cardington, Ohio

Thomas L. “Tom” Weiler, 57, of Cardington, died Tuesday February 27, 2007 at the University of Virginia Hospital after complications from surgery.

He was born on June 24, 1949 in Marion, Ohio the son of the late Robert A. Sr. and Elsie C. (Mosery) Weiler.

Tom has been a vital member of the local farming community since his graduation from Highland High School in 1967.

Demonstrated by his high level of involvement in the community you always knew Tom was at a meeting; never afraid to express his opinion. He was very outspoken and loved to argue, but in the end he respected you and your opinion and would not hold a grudge.

He was actively involved in the Regional Planning Committee, Morrow County Comprehensive Land Use Plan, Morrow County Zoning, and The OSU Extension Advisory Committee. Tom also participated in agricultural demonstration and research plots since 1990 and was a host to Agricultural Days.

He was named Outstanding SWCD Cooperator of the Year in 2004 and made the largest land donation to the Ohio Farmland Preservation.

Tom was actively involved in 4-H and became known as “Uncle Tom” to hundreds of 4-H campers at Camp Ohio in Martinsburg, Ohio.

If you saw Tom out and about you know he never went anywhere without his dogs; whether in his truck, tractor, or combine.

In his limited free time he enjoyed making maple syrup and clay shooting.

Tom will be missed by his four brothers Robert (Marilyn) Weiler Jr. of Mount Gilead, Ohio, Larry (Kathy) Weiler of Mount Gilead, Ohio, Michael (Pam) Weiler of Ontario, Ohio and Stephen (Kim) Weiler of Cardington, Ohio.

He was preceded in death by his parents.

Friends may call on the family on Sunday March 4, 2007 from 4-8 p.m. at the Snyder Funeral Home, 76 South Main Street, Mount Gilead. A private family graveside service will be held at a later date.

In lieu of flowers contributions may be made to 4-H of Morrow County to assist with scholarships for future campers.
