Obituary for Thomas Jeffery Babb

Thomas “Tom” Jeffery Babb, 69, of Fostoria, passed away on Monday, April 15, 2019 at the Bridge Hospice Care Center in Findlay.
He was born in Fostoria on September 2, 1949, to the late Donald William and Eunice Irene (Shultz) Babb. He married Ardella Dieter on July 2, 1971 at St. Wendelin Catholic Church in Fostoria, and she survives him.
Also cherishing his memory are his three daughters, Janelle (Michael) Blackburn, of Ada, Jeannine (Jason) Schubach, of New Riegel, and Nicole Sterling, of Fenton, MI; former son-in-law, Sean Sterling, of Fenton, MI; 6 grandchildren, Claire and Mallory Blackburn, Macy and Evie Schubach, and Meghan and Grant Sterling; brother, William “Bill” (Ivy) Babb, of Fostoria; two brothers-in-law, James Dieter, of Port Charlotte, Fl and Greg Dieter, of Fostoria; two sisters-in-law, Denise (Steve) Brown, of Fostoria and Lindy (Kirk) Eynon, of Bowling Green,Ohio; as well as numerous nieces and nephews and great nieces and nephews.
He was also preceded in death by a grandson, Jack Tillman Sterling, and father-in-law and mother-in-law, Jim and Joyce Dieter.
Tom was a 1967 St. Wendelin High School graduate, and a member of St. Wendelin Catholic Church.
A U.S. Army Veteran, Tom served his country in Vietnam, for which we are a grateful nation. Having worked previously at the Fostoria Foundry, and General Dynamic’s Lima Tank Plant, he retired in 1997. He then drove the Fostoria Community Hospital’s van, helping to transport seniors for various medical appointments. In his leisure, he enjoyed cooking, traveling, and all sports, however he most enjoyed his grandchildren and any events they were involved in.
He was a devoted husband, father, and grandfather; truly committed to his family, always available and attentive to all of their needs.
Visitation will be held from 4-7 pm on Thursday, April 18, 2019, at HOENING & SON Funeral Home, 133 W. Tiffin St., Fostoria. Funeral services will begin in the funeral home on Friday, at 10 am, Rev. Daniel J. Ring, officiating.
