Thomas Bouillon

Thomas A. “Tom” Bouillon, 64, of New Riegel, left his earthly home and the love of his life to be with the Lord at 7:07 p.m. on July 1, 2022, at St. Vincent Mercy Medical Center in Toledo.
Tom was born in Tiffin on Sept. 25, 1957, to Edmund J. and Mary Alice (Smith) Bouillon.
Jan. 30, 1993, was a great day for Tom. He married Donna M. Fredritz at St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Kirby. After settling into marriage, they purchased Tom’s family home in New Riegel, where he still resided. Tom had a passion for cattle and tractors. Most vacations included a tractor or a trailer with Donna by his side. They were inseparable. Plow days and tractor drives were his favorite trips. He was a member of the Seneca County Antique Machinery Association and the Cattlemen’s Association.
Tom farmed with his father at a young age and took over after his dad passed. He farmed until his livestock hauling business took off and he was on the road more than in the fields. Tom loved to drive and haul all over Ohio, usually without a map. In 2019, when his hauling slowed down, he started at AutoZone in Tiffin to deliver parts.
Tom leaves behind his wife of 29 years and two children, Stacey (Joe) Dean of Carey and Jesse (Noel) Wentz of Wharton; seven grandchildren, Tanner Dean, Riley Dean, Tayler Ashburn, Jaxson and Westyn Dean, Seneca Conner and Arden Wentz; and three great-grandchildren, Zoey, Camden and Everly Dean. He is also survived by six siblings, Kathy (Rick) Bunge of Lambertville, Mich.; Dorothy (Gary) Hausman of Flat Rock, N.C.; Carolyn Bouillon of New Riegel, Diane Bouillon of Maumee, Linda Molyneux of Oakwood and Vicki (Todd) Riley of Oregon; nine in-laws, Laura (Ray) Hohman of Tiffin, Carol Fredritz of Tiffin, Norma (Howard) Fox of Millfield, Debbie Bennett of Avon Lake, Bob (Marsha) Fredritz of Carey, Joe (Sandy) Fredritz of Carey, Martha Weinandy of Carey, Teresa (Dan) Smith of Tiffin and Ed (Dolores) Fredritz of Carey and many nieces and nephews.
Preceding him in death are his parents; a brother, Fran Bouillon; four in-laws, Tom Fredritz, Donnie Fredritz, Earl Weinandy and Deb Rall.
A man of faith, Tom was a member of All Saints Parish in New Riegel. Tom’s faith drove him in many ways. The last was the donation of his kidneys in memory of his brother, Fran.
Visitation will be 2-4 and 6-8 p.m. on Tuesday, July 5, at Stombaugh-Batton Funeral Home in Carey.
A mass of Christian burial will be held at 10 a.m. on Wednesday, July 6, at All Saints Parish in New Riegel with Fr. Tim Kummerer and the Rev. Conrad Sutter, OFM Conv., co-officiating. The rosary will be prayed prior to the mass. Burial will follow at St. Boniface Cemetery in New Riegel.
Memorial contributions may be given to the Seneca County Antique Machinery Association or Seneca County Junior Fair Foundation and sent to the funeral home.
