Obituary

Thomas Loraine Voss passed away Monday, May 3, at the age of 91 with his loving family by his side. He was born to Tena Letson Voss and John Henry Voss, Oct. 12, 1929 at his lifelong home in Lake, Michigan. Tom married his first and only love, Alma Maxine Hall in November of 1949 who preceded him in death in 2007. Together they had two daughters, Maxine Vader and Christine Rhoads and an adopted grandson, Christian Voss.
He is survived by his three children; 4 grandchildren: Jerry Vader of TX, Fred and Marci (Vader) Randolph of MI, Mark Vader and fiancé Ashley Nichole of MI, Ben and Amber (Voss-Lape) Toomer of CO.; 3 great-grandchildren: Angel Randolph, Jeremy Randolph and Levi Toomer; plus one great-great grandchild Dakotah who was Grandpa Tom’s best friend, and dear friend Leon Seiter; sister-in-law’s: Betty Voss, Evelyn Henry, Suzie Hall, Marge Hall and brother-in-law Duane Mercer; also many nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, wife Alma, infant son Robert Gene, father and mother-in-law, John and Pearl Hall; brothers: Farron (Ping), John (Doyle), Charles, Bob, and sisters: Annie McClung, Gwendolyn Thompson, and Christina Singleton; plus, many sister and brother in-laws.
As a child growing up on the family farm, he had many great adventures, one of those involved befriending animals. At around age 6 or 7 Tom is seen in an old family photo with his two pet badgers by his side, Peggy and Sport. They were two little critters he rescued that were trapped in the ruins of an old log cabin basement. They were friendly little buggers who even showed up uninvited to a family reunion a couple miles from home.
Tom was a long-time member of the Community Church of Christ in Farwell, MI. In his later years he could be found taking little cat naps during the services. He also belonged to the Farwell VFW Post, and was a veteran of the Korean War. He spent most of his life working in maintenance and construction for different companies. His final and favorite job was working for the Chippewa Hills School System. There his titles included bus driver, maintenance man, and janitor.
He loved to hunt in his younger years and to go fishing with his grandchildren, and other friends and family. He also loved to garden, ride snowmobile, listen to music, hunt for mushrooms, and watch cartoons with Dakotah (his great-great grandson), visit family, play horseshoes and cards; even ice skate and ride bike until his late 70’s with family. Grandpa Tom will be missed by all his family and friends.
Tom will be laid to rest in the North Brinton Cemetery next to his wife, Alma. A celebration of his life will be held at a later date.

Awwww, soo sad to hear this. I had pleasure of working at school with Tom quite a bit. Not a kinder, easy going guy could you ask for in my opinion. I never once heard Tom have a bad word about anyone. Good people like Tom seem hard to come by anymore. Tom, you will be missed no doubt, and for sure Rest In Peace my friend. 😪🙏🙏
