Thomas Putman Obituary

Thomas Lee Putman, 74, of Lucas, Ohio passed away January 20, 2023, at Ohio Health of Mansfield after a brief illness. Tom was surrounded by his loved ones.

On October 18, 1969, in Harts, WV, Tom married the love of his life, Sharon Kay Conley. Soon after, they moved to the Lucas area to start their life and build a family. Their family was the light of Tom’s life. He cared so much for his children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.

If you came up the driveway you would often find Tom tinkering away with some project in the garage. He found a lot of joy in giving broken things a new life. He made many friends all over the area through his love for the CB radio.

His family will carry him in their hearts and continue his legacy of leading with love, loyalty, and integrity. The wonderful traits and special qualities he had will be cherished and passed on for many generations to come.
