Obituary

Thomas Joseph Reiser, 69, passed away peacefully on October 15, 2020 after a brief illness.  He was born on July 24, 1951 to Jack and Joann (Schwartz) Reiser.


Tom was a 1971 graduate of Groveport Madison.  He was a retired meat inspector serving the state of Ohio for over 30 years.  After retirement, he enjoyed repairing boats and waverunners in the local area and at Hide-A-Way Hills.  He will always be remembered for his Hawiian shirts, funny stories and witty personality.  Everyone has a favorite Tom Reiser story.  Hot Doggie!
