November 26, 1942 — December 30, 2023

Captain Thomas Joseph Herold was born November 26, 1942, in Toledo, Ohio, to James and Alice (Persik) Herold. Thomas graduated from St. James Grade School, St. Francis de Sales High School, the University of Toledo (B.B.A. in General Business and Economics), and the Ohio State University (M.B.A. in General Business and Economics). He served as an altar boy at St. James Church and later trained other boys to be altar servers. Occasionally, he sang in the church choir. After completing his formal education, Tom entered active duty with the U.S. Army and served in the USA, Korea, Vietnam, and Germany. He was married for seven years to Mary Watson Herold of Fayetteville, North Carolina. They had no children.

After military service, Tom worked in the USA for several years, eventually returning to Germany, where he lived for more than 22 years, most of them operating his own business as a tax preparer for United States citizens and small businesses. Of particular interest to Tom was spiritual development, meditation, quantum mechanics, and metaphysics.
