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 had many passions in life. He adored the sport of fishing and would spend as much time on the water as possible and taught his children how to fish as well. Thomas also taught them how to maintain their own vehicles. 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.
