Thomas H. Upp Sr., 66, passed away suddenly at his Pleasantville farm, on February 12, 2013. Tom took great pride in his family and the family farm. He will be remembered as a hard working man, quick to help a neighbor or friend in need. To Tom, the day was over when the work was done.
Tom is survived by his wife, Sherrie; children, Tim Upp, Sherrill (Mike) King, Jim Upp and Tom (Pam) Upp Jr.; grandchildren, Elizabeth Upp, Ryan King, Levi Upp, Taylor King, and Dylan Upp; brother, Robert (Lois) Upp; sister, Barb (Allen) Stanley; and nieces and nephews.
He was preceded in death by his parents, Herbert and Leefe Upp; father in law, John McCain; mother in law, Anna McCain; sisters, June Boyer, Delores Hite and Flo George; and brother, Richard Upp.
To honor Tom, an informal memorial service will be held at the family farm from 2-4 p.m. on Saturday, February 16. Friends and family are welcome. Cremation has taken place with a private burial. Tom took all his jobs seriously: husband, father, farmer and friend. We will miss him dearly. The Sheridan funeral home is handling the arrangements.
