Also surviving are mother in law, Ruth VanMullen; brother and sister in law, Dan & Dory VanMullen; special friends, Doug & Michele DeBok, Doug & Jenni Hoonhorst; and “Dutch”, Tom's dog. Tom was preceded in death by his father, John Roedema. A funeral service will be held Monday, July 2 at 11 AM at Heritage Life Story Funeral Home, 2120 Lake Michigan Drive NW.
