April 15, 1926 - December 15, 2017
Thomas P. Moffett, age 91, of Saginaw, passed away peacefully on Friday, December 15, 2017, in Saginaw. The son of William and Matilda Moffett, Thomas was born on April 15, 1926, in Saginaw, Michigan. Thomas was proud to serve the US Army Air Force during World War 2, where he met his beloved wife, Ernestine “Anna” Jezek. After an overseas courtship, Tom was able to bring Anna here to the United States and live a life of love with four children and many grandchildren. Tom worked hard as a master electrician, belonging to the IBEW for 55 years, where he helped put his stamp on Saginaw. He helped in the building of Douglas MacArthur High School, Eisenhower High School, and many other landmarks in Saginaw. Later in life he could be seen playing with his grandchildren at Berberovich Park, singing karaoke at the American Legion, or walking his many dogs. But the thing he loved and was most proud of was taking care of his family. Thomas is survived by his loving son, Donald P. (Karen Hoefling) Moffett; grandchildren, Stacey (David) Egerer, Angela (Jason) Rychel, Jennifer (David) Fries, Sarah Jeffrey, Aaron Moffett, Cam Moffett, and Callie Moffett; great-grandchildren, Anna and Gracie Egerer; Tyler, Zachary, and Tanner Rychel; Madison and Anthony Fries; and Erica Jeffrey. Thomas is also survived by his dear friend, Lori VanOchten; a daughter-in-law, Sue Moffett; and several nieces, nephews, and cousins. He was preceded in death by his wife, Ernestine Moffett; children, Thomas Moffett, Terri Blakely, and Jon Moffett; siblings, Bill Moffett, Donald Moffett, Daisy Turner, Evelyn Husen, Blanche Baranic, Richard Moffett, and Roy Moffett.
