Obituary

Thomas Joseph Zebula was born on Thursday, May 4, 1939 in Detroit, Michigan. He was one of two children of Daniel and Julia Zebula. Thomas died on Friday, January 11, 2019 with family by his side.

Thomas worked for over 35 years at General Motors as an engineer. But he could have worked anywhere. He had three degrees from Wayne State University, a bachelor degree in mechanical engineering, a master degree in business administration, a minor in mathematics, and his fourth degree was a Juris Doctorate degree from Detroit College of Law, now Michigan State University. Thomas enjoyed reading books and debating politics which was a passion of his. He loved completing crossword puzzles and Sudoku puzzles and watching every type of sporting event. Thomas' true love was his family, especially his wife Patricia who he shared 49 wonderful years with. His first thoughts were always for his wife and children's happiness, and he was always there when ever they needed him. He loved providing for them and he lived his life through the lives of his wife and children.

Thomas leaves behind his beloved wife Patricia, and his dear children Natalie (Dave) Foote, and Matthew (Lauren) Zebula. He is the treasured grandfather of Henry Foote, Thomas Foote, Edward Foote, Ryan Zebula, and Andrew Zebula.
