Tom Kyle List Obituary

Tom Kyle List, age 78, from Seaman, Ohio, passed away Saturday, August 6, 2022. He is survived by his loving wife, Barbara Herbert List; children, Theresa (Jon) Riep, Greg (Vivian) Herbert, Michelle (Thomas) Harris, Gabrielle Moss, daughter-inlaw Melissa Herbert, brother, Bob(Este); nieces/nephews Ruth Jones, Ed(Donna) List, Ted(Eileen) List, Barbara Kiser-Werner, Debbie Greenhill, Cathy Greenhill, Ron Greenhill, Jerry Greenhill(Gina), Sheli Morcom(Bob), Todd List, William “Tye” Schuttinger, Tom (Rachel) Schuttinger, 16 grandchildren, 10 great-grandchildren and his beloved pets Bootsie & Newbie. Tom was preceded in death by his parents Hugh & Eleanor (Allison) List; siblings, Jerry List, Hugh (Buddy) List, David List, Ann Greenhill, Terrie Schuttinger and son Michael Herbert. Tom was born July 23, 1944 in Seaman, Ohio where he lived and worked with his parents and siblings on the family tobacco farm through his high school years. He was a Boy Scout, and enjoyed playing baseball and working at Mound Park in Portsmouth. He attended Portsmouth High School played on the High School and American Legion Baseball teams until he graduated in 1962. After high school graduation, he attended Bowling Green State University and continued playing baseball at the college level while completing his studies. In 1966 he graduated from BGSU with a Bachelor’s Degree in Education. After obtaining his Bachelor’s Degree, Tom was a teacher at Eastland Career Center. He left his teaching career to become the Southeast Ohio Regional Sales Representative for The Balfour Company for 35+ years. Tom spent leisure time playing golf at the local golf course, softball or spending weekends during football season cheering his favorite College football team “Ohio State Buckeyes” to victory. He was a regular attendee at Scioto Down’s Harness Racing and Beulah Park’s Thoroughbred racetrack where he spent entire afternoons conversing with friends and betting on the horses. A majority of Tom’s life was spent attending numerous sporting events, providing moral support and sharing in the accomplishments of his children, grandchildren, nephew and nieces. He rarely missed those special moments, swimming meets, baseball and softball games, Lacrosse matches, a father/daughter school dance, high school/college graduations and recognition of personal achievements and award ceremonies. He always made a point of being there! Tom will always be remembered for his straight-forward approach to life as someone who was always honest about how he felt and willing to offer his point of view on any subject. He gave sound advice without judgement, to educate, encourage or to make you “think before you acted” in any situation. He was very dependable and willing to help no matter what. He liked to tell stories or to share a good joke, was very quick-witted and was usually able to “ruffle your feathers” any chance he got with his teasing. He had a zest for life giving the appearance that nothing ever got him down no matter what life dealt him and he carried that zest through-out his final days. Tom had a significant influence on many people through-out his life, he was dearly loved and admired by his wife Barbara and adored her with everything he had. His immediate and extended families, endless friends and acquaintances and will be missed by all, but never forgotten. He fought a long, hard and courageous battle and can now rest peacefully for eternity.
