Thomas Earl Weller, a beloved husband, father, and community leader, passed away on Friday, March 3th, 2023, in Fort Myers, Florida, at the age of 77. Tom was born in Centerville, Ohio, in June 1945, to his parents Earl and Frances Weller. He was predeceased by his parents and his sister, Sue Van Voorhis, who passed away in 1992.
Tom attended the University of Cincinnati, where he earned his degree in Business Management while also excelling on the basketball team. He went on to have successful careers in various fields, including innovative marketing technologies, owned and operated multiple businesses, a decade-long tenure at Amtrak, and finally telecommunications sales.
Tom was not only a successful businessman, but he was also a passionate philanthropist. He co-founded and operated the charitable organization “He is Pleased,” which helped over 300 men recover from addiction and rebuild their lives through work and gaining a pathway back into society.
Tom had a zest for life and was an avid sports enthusiast. He loved boating, fishing, golfing, bowling, and any other sport he could find competitors. He shared his love for sports with his family and friends, and his competitive spirit was contagious. He was a teacher and mentor who never met a stranger.
Tom is survived by his wife of 53 years, Carole Diane Weller; his two sons, Geoffrey Weller and Michael Weller, and their respective spouses, Alaina and Jessica; as well as his five beloved grandchildren, Victoria, Zayne, Aden, Francesca, and Dylan.
Tom will always be remembered for his passion for life, his kind heart, and his dedication to helping others. He will be deeply missed by his family, friends, and all those whose lives he touched.
