Tom Debuse was an extraordinary man. He lived his life to the fullest each day. He was always the first one up in the morning and often the last to go to bed. Time spent with him was always an adventure and being in his company meant that you were bound to learn something. Though Thomas was taken from us February 17th, 2011 he lives on in each of us; through our memories of times with him and in the ways he changed us. Tom was survived by his loving parents Carole and David, his beloved sister Catherine, his soul-mate and fiancee Julia and his dearest little girl Lucia (Lucy).
Two funds have been created to support Lucia Marvin DeBuse’s development with the loss of her father,
Tom DeBuse. The families involved are both modest & hardworking. They will never make a request
themselves for your contribution to these funds, but everyone shares in the strong desire to support
Lucia’s development. Please join us with your contribution to a college savings plan or a trust fund that
have been set-up in her name.
A 529 College plan is a formal tax protected savings plan for college education. It is similar to the 401(k)
savings plan for retirement with age-based mutual funds. Earnings from the account can only be used
to pay for qualified educational expenses for the beneficiary and this fund has been set up as a Minor
Owned account with Lucia as the single owner and beneficiary.
Other life events can and will come up for Lucia where she might need more flexible financial assistance.
This fund has been started with a generous contribution by the DeBuse family.
We encourage you to support either of these funds. This is a much better way to honor Tom’s legacy of
helping others than toasting a glass (you can do that too); please help enable Lucia to have all options
open to her as she grows into a young woman.
