Thomas Lloyd Drugan, 57, passed away December 28th, 2013.
He was born in Ravenna, Ohio in 1956 to parents Ralph W. and Frankie M. (Carrigan) Drugan. The sixth child and third son of eight children, he was much loved. He graduated from Ravenna High School and soon after, proudly served his country in the United States Army, stationed at Fort Ord, California. His crystal blue eyes reflected his joyful heart. You could always count on a smile and conversation every morning. He loved hats and in his later years was rarely seen without one. Tom loved music. Whether singing or dancing he embraced a true Irish spirit. He valued friendship and leaves many to mourn his passing and cherish his memory. His family is grateful to his loving friend, Avis Amidon for being at his side.
He was preceded in death by his parents and brother Daniel.
