Tom Kumpel passed from this life on July 28, 2018 to spend eternity with his Lord and Savior, Jesus. His Father, Paul Kumpel, was a lay pastor for many years and his mother, Laura, gave a great deal of support to her husband in his church assignments.
Tom was active in his church for his entire life: forming a youth usher group; shepherding a youth group; Sunday School Superintendent; organizing, leading and teaching a group called COGs (Children of God); leading music and directing Men’s Fellowship. For many years, he was also a proud supporter of Children of Promise, sponsoring a number of children and also paying for their education after they left the program. He also took four missionary journeys with Dr. Paul Maxfield, who became a good friend.
Tom is survived by his loving wife, Vicki (nee Weller), and daughters Stacie Albee (Rich) and Cynthia Kumpel as well as two grandchildren, Brooke and Ricky. At his death he asked for donations to be made to the Children of Promise Scholarship Fund so that more sponsored children can complete their higher education.
