Thomas Edward Budde

BUDDE, Thomas 84, of Centerville, Ohio passed away peacefully at his home on December 6,
2022. He was born January 12, 1938 in Dayton, Ohio to Harold and Mary (Keller) Budde. He is
preceded in death by his wife, Sandra Budde and son, Harold Budde. Tom is survived by his
daughters, Angela Haller and Lisa (Ty) Walk and his step-daughter Candace Howard; his
grandchildren, Patrick (Kristen) O’Bryan, Alexandra (Garrett) Morris, Christopher O’Bryan,
Casey (Olivia) Walk, and Tyler Budde; his nine great grandchildren. Tom graduated from
Fairview High School in 1956 where he established many lifelong friendships. Tom was loved by
all who knew him. He took great pride in serving as the President of Budde Sheet Metal Works,
where he happily worked over 63 years. He was a highly respected influence in the sheet metal
industry and also served as the President of the Sheet Metal Contractors Association. Tom was
an active member of the Dayton Rotary Club. His philanthropic nature has benefitted many
people and organizations throughout the community. Tom was a dedicated Dayton Flyers fan his
entire life. Not only did Tom work hard, but he also played hard…snow skiing, boating, bike
riding, bowling, participating in numerous social groups, and attending any activity his grandkids
or great grandkids were involved in. His deepest sense of pride was his family who adored him.
Tom Budde represented all that is good in this world and will surely be missed.
