Thomas Eugene Greve was born on August 14th, 1942 to Herman Albert and Esto Delloma (Benjamin) Greve in Tyler, the youngest of eight boys. He went to school in Russell, where he completed grades 1-8. He married Vicky (Peterson) Greve on August 21, 1964, and together had four children, Jeri, Eugene, Malinda, and Thomas Jr. Thomas was employed at the Schwan’s Ice Cream Plant for many years.

Thomas had many passions in life. He adored fishing and hunting bear in Canada. Thomas taught his children and grandchildren many lifelong skills. He loved to travel and they went on many camping trips as a family and he had also enjoyed moving around the country with his brothers while they were enlisted in the service. While at home he got a kick out of playing Solitare on his computer and later on his cell phone once his daughter Malinda taught him how to download the apps. His grandchildren and great-grandchildren were the light of his eyes.

Thomas passed away at his home on Saturday, December 31st, 2022. He is survived by his wife Vicky, brother Gary, children Jeri (Timothy) Mitchell, Malinda Searcy (fiancé Mike DeVos), Thomas Greve Jr, grandchildren Chrystal (Mike) Klumper, Tabatha (Owen) Larson, Tara Grotjohn, Cody Grotjohn, Preston (Sydney) Peters, great-grandchildren Alexis, Lauren, Brayden, Layla, Lida, and Brady Thomas, numerous nieces, nephews, cousins, and in-laws. He is preceded in death by his parents Herman and Esto, brothers Donald, Raymond, John, Terrance, Delbert, and Frank, son Eugene, mother and father-in-law Luella and Percy Peterson, brother-in-law Rodney Plantz, sister-in-law Deanna Lange, and nephew Doug Greve.

Thomas’ Urn Bearers are his beloved grandchildren Chrystal, Tabatha, Tara, Cody, and Preston. His Honorary Urn Bearers are his beloved great-grandchildren Alexis, Lauren, Brayden, Layla, Lida, and Brady Thomas.
