Thomas Edward Howe III

December 23, 1997 - February 15, 2022

 

Tommy was an amazing young man of outstanding kindness, integrity, and faith. His empathy for others gave him the ability to understand and share not only of himself, but to embrace the feelings and emotions of others.  He was everyone's friend. From the moment you met him, his smile and charm warmed your heart.  Tommy was the most humble person you would ever meet and had a heart of gold.  Tommy centered his life around his family and friends. He valued the time he spent with each and every one of them.  We can all cherish the memories and stories of Tommy in our hearts.  

Tommy attended St. Patrick's School (K-8), Wadsworth, IL, class of 2012, where he received the Christian Leadership Award. He attended Antioch Community High School, Antioch, IL, class of 2016, where graduated with Cum Laude and High Honors. He excelled in football, volleyball, and Sequoit Media. He was awarded the Daily Herald "Heart and Soul" Award for the inclusion of all students within the school and extracurricular activities. He attended Miami University, Oxford, OH, where he was a dignified brother of the Mu Psi Chapter of Sigma Alpha Mu. Tommy graduated in the class of 2020, where he earned a Bachelor's Degree in Chemical Engineering, with a Minor in Business Administration, graduating Magna Cum Laude.  He began his career as an Engineer in 2020, where he continued to excel in his field.

Tommy was born on December 23, 1997, in Libertyville, IL.  His life came full circle to his passing, where he was found on February 15, 2022, in Libertyville, IL, after an extensive search.
