Thomas J. Wurm, 57 years of age, passed away Monday, January 14, 2013 at his residence. Born in Cleveland, Ohio on April 16, 1955, he was the son of the late Edward A. and Margaret (Desborough) Wurm.
A lifelong Aurora resident, he graduated from Aurora High School in 1973, where he was active with the wrestling team. In 1979, Mr. Wurm, along with his brother, Edward, took over the operation of Wurm Builders, the business started by their father, changing the name to Classic Homes, which remains today. An expert furniture maker, he also truly enjoyed the outdoors, including fishing and skeet shooting, and many fond memories will remain of the home that Mr. Wurm and his children built together at Pelee Island in Canada where family summers were spent. A gentleman of few words, he will always be remembered as a loving husband, and a great father whose cherished times with family will never be forgotten.
On September 15, 1978, Mr. Wurm married his devoted wife, Diane (Logan) Wurm, who survives at their residence. Also surviving are his loving children, Thomas J. (Ellen) Wurm, Matthew J. (Renee) Wurm and Megan (Robert) Romick all of University Heights, Ohio; his siblings, Edward (Cathy) Wurm of Mantua, Betty (Jerry Oriel) Wurm of Twinsburg, Kathleen ( John " King " ) Kolar of Aurora and Eileen Wurm of Plymouth, Michigan.
