Obituary for Thomas F. Koesel

September 4, 1953 - May 27, 2018
North Royalton, Ohio | Age 64


Thomas F. Koesel, age 64, passed away peacefully on May 27, 2018 with his beloved bride, Vicky, by his side. A proud veteran of the United States Navy, Tom served on the flight deck on the maiden voyage of the U.S.S. Nimitz.

Following his service in the U.S. Navy, Tom embarked on a 35-year career in retail management, forming life-long bonds and friendships with many of his colleagues at Pick-n-Pay, Finast and Tops Markets. In 2013, Tom became owner of Pawsitively Pure All-Natural Pet Food. Owning the store, meeting amazing new people and their four-legged friends, gave him great joy.

Tom is survived by his bride, Vicky, his twin brother Daniel J., his brother Richard J. (Rosalie), sisters Margaret M., Mary Jo Day (Michael F.), Lori A. Griffiths (Gregory), and Joan M. Schentur (Raymond), and 15 nieces and nephews. Both his parents, Richard H. and Ruth M., and his sister, Nancy J. Day, preceded him in death.
