Beloved son of the late Thomas and Ruth (nee Zerges) Mason, loving brother of Dianne Berger (Joseph) and Timothy Mason (Mike Hulme), caring uncle to Michael Stehlin (late Catherine), Marc Stehlin (Monica Villaboy), Julie Mason (Scott) Jenny Stehlin (Todd Overbeck), great uncle to Oscar and Clara Stehlin and Talon Mason. Tom was a teacher and counselor at Elder High Scholl for forty years. He was proud he never had a sick day since grade school.
