Tom Breuer

March 17, 1946 ~ July 11, 2021 (age 75)


On Sunday, July 11, 2021, Tom Breuer, loving and faithful husband to Carol and father of four children, passed away unexpectedly but peacefully at the age of 75.

Tom was born on March 17, 1946, in Mt. Pleasant, Iowa, to David and Martha Breuer. He was the youngest of six boys on their farm, with large family and farm work ethic preparing him well to receive an engineering degree from the University of Illinois and subsequently to serve in the Navy under the legendary Admiral Rickover.

On June 16, 1968, he married Carol Parcheta from Elmhurst, IL.  They raised one daughter, Elizabeth, and three sons, Elliott, Matthew, and Luke, in Winchester, MA.  They have been blessed with nine grandchildren whom they cherished.

In addition to caring for his family, Tom was an accomplished entrepreneur and businessman leading multiple successful ventures over his career.

While successful in business, his passions extended over decades through extensive philanthropic work, hands-on involvement, and personal mentoring in churches, organizations and ministries.  His generosity with his time, talent, and treasure was both broad and deep, firmly establishing his legacy.

When not leading his various businesses or engaging in philanthropic work, he enjoyed getting back to his Iowa dirt-farmer roots on his “hundred-acre wood” in the mountains of Stowe, VT.  There were tractors to drive, trails to cut, driveways to plow, bears to watch out for, and much more.  Family and friends loved walking the trails with him and Carol whenever they visited.

Tom is survived by his wife, Carol, and his four children, Elliott, Matthew, Elizabeth, and Luke, and their four spouses, Paula, Kathrin, Doug, and Stephanie, his brothers, Jim, Dick, and Max, and his nine grandchildren, Ryan, Aaron, Caelen, Daniel, Tucker, Joseph, Deborah, Jonathan, and Botho.

A private Memorial Service was held in St. Albans, VT, on July 17, 2021 at 2pm. The family wishes to extend their invitation to those wishing to pay respects to join them for a Memorial Service on August 28th, 2:00pm at Park Street Church in Boston. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Teen Challenge: www.teenchallengeusa.org
