Thomas was a 1972 graduate of Catasauqua High School and went on to further his education by achieving a B.S in Pharmacy from the University of the Sciences. He worked as a pharmacist for a variety of places before eventually retiring from Weis Markets. He enjoyed volunteering his time as a trail ambassador for the DL Trail, fishing at Leaser Lake, and was proud of his many wood carvings including a bear and friendly dragon that stood at the Catasauqua Park. He was a devoted husband, loving father and caring grandfather. He will be truly missed by all who knew and loved him.
In addition to his wife, Cathy, he is survived by his son, John T. Rutman and wife Alana; daughters, Natalie Rutman and husband Chris Bickert; and Maureen Rutman; grandson, Spencer Bickert; and many nieces and nephews. He was predeceased by brother, Ronald Rutman and sister, Sylvia Nicklas.
