Thomas (Tom) Zabrecky, of Carrington, North Dakota passed away suddenly and unexpectedly of apparent natural causes on Thursday, September 29, 2022. Tom was 58 years old.
Tom was born and raised in Broadview Heights, Ohio to parents Richard (Dick) and Eva Zabrecky. Tom was the third child and oldest son of 6 siblings.
After graduating from Brecksville High School, Tom enlisted in the United Stated Army, honorably serving for 4 years, being stationed at Fort Sill, Oklahoma. After returning home from military service, Tom worked various jobs, while making time for friends and family. Tom was known as a man who was big in stature, but much, much bigger in heart. He didn’t know a stranger and thoroughly enjoyed holding conversations with anyone he’d meet.
In the mid 2000’s Tom set off on a new adventure that led him to Carrington, which he ultimately chose to call home. Tom worked at Dakota Growers Pasta Company as a machine operator. When he wasn’t working, he was busy meeting friends at the local coffee shop, bowling alley or anywhere else he could find someone to talk to. Tom also made sure to keep in touch with his family back in Ohio with constant phone calls and visits when he could.
Tom will be deeply missed by his mother Eva Jacob Zabrecky, Sisters, Jane (Greg) Pintner, Mary, and Linda Kuehn, brother Mike as well as best friend/brother James Richter. Loving uncle to Kevin (Ansley), Ashley, Chris (Megan), Brandon and Carson. Tom was very excited about becoming a Great Uncle to Emma Grace. Cousin and friend to many. He was preceded in death by father Richard Zabrecky, siblings Veronica Zabrecky Fasching and Mark Zabrecky.
Thomas’ Visitation will be Thursday, October 6, 2022 from 2:00PM-3:00PM followed by a Funeral Service at 3:00PM all at Evans Funeral Home, Carrington.
A Mass of Christian Burial will take place at The Church of the Assumption in Broadview Heights, Ohio at a later date.
Condolences are reviewed by staff.
