Thomas Allen Sadler

Died: Tuesday, December 07, 2010
Age: 80
Thomas Allen Sadler, of Almont, passed away on December 7, 2010.

He was born August 28, 1930 in Muskegon to Claude and Ruth Sadler. Tom was the second born of four children. Tom enjoyed and loved his sisters Joan and Karen and brother Mike.

Married to his high school sweetheart in 1950, the Lord blessed Tom and Nola with nearly sixty years of marriage. They were the proud parents of three sons, Tom (Diane) of Dryden, Tim (Teena) of Almont and Ted (Amy) of Imlay City, and daughter Mari Lynn of Almont; nine grandchildren, Laurie O’Dell, Erin O’Dell, Mike Sadler, Michele Sadler, Debbie Stoldt, Darrell Soto, Gloria Soto, Ted Thomas, Michael Sadler and Kaitlyn Sadler. Also, eight great-grandchildren have delighted Tom and Nola as well.

Tom and Nola bought the Almont Times Herald in 1957 and later founded the Tri-City Times newspaper to serve the communities of Almont, Dryden, Capac and Imlay City. Their dedication and hard work brought many awards and much recognition to their entire team.

Tom enjoyed his work but even more, he loved time with family and friends. Many people found themselves at a dinner table with a terrific steak in front of them and great camaraderie. Tom also helped many local families in times of need and was quick to encourage someone starting out with some wise words or a job or both.

Tom was preceded in death by his parents, his beloved wife Nola and two grandchildren, Laurie O’Dell and Darrell Soto.

He was ‘one in a million’ and will be greatly missed.

Services were held at Muir Brothers Funeral Home in Almont on Saturday, December 11, 2010.
