Thomas Donald Letterle, age 36, passed away unexpectedly March 18, 2017. He was born November 25, 1980, in Parma to Thomas and Doris (Trimmer) Letterle. Affectionately known as Tommy, loved by more than he'll ever understand. Tom was a fun-loving soul who always somehow ended up with the "broken" game controller. Always dancing goofily and making faces. We're all 98% sure he practiced those faces in the mirror. Tom was a natural born artist, never stopped creating something new. He had a passion for bringing the unimaginable to life. Musician, Artist, Ninja-Turtle Enthusiast, 80s-cartoon lover, son, grandson, brother, uncle, and friend. Tom is survived by his loving parents, Tom and Doe; younger sisters Jessica (Cole) Morgan, Lisa (Justin) Shiflet, Katie Letterle; nephew and niece Desmond & Charlotte Morgan; grandparents Bud & Sue Trimmer, Patricia Peterson; fiancée Mér C. Hall; former wife Kate Reynolds; and numerous cherished aunts, uncles, cousins, and friends. He was preceded in death by his paternal grandfather, Donald Letterle.
