Jarrettsville, Maryland- Tom Schwind, cherished husband of Diana Steese, died on December 5, his 71st birthday.  He was a devoted father to his son Brian Steese and daughter Sabrina (Daniel) Moore, and proud grandfather of Caroline Moore.  Tom was a loving brother to Debbie Rowlett, Bobby (Zita) Schwind, Sandy (Art) Schwind, Gene (Pat) Leuba, Carl Leuba, Kathy Leuba, Chris (Steve) Leuba, Mark (Carolyn) Leuba and the late Ginny Leuba and was beloved by a host of family and friends.

Tom served in the United States Marine Corp, doing a tour in Vietnam, for which he received a purple heart.  He avidly followed the many activities of his children, coaching both baseball and softball for many years at Jarrettsville Rec Center as well as volunteering in Boy Scout troop 165.  Tom recently retired after more than 40 years at Winner Distributing, where he was affectionately known as "Tom, the Bud Man."  He loved his Maryland crabs and cheering on the Orioles, Ravens and his daughter's alma mater, Virginia Tech.  With a penchant for bad jokes (not that he'd admit it...) and a contagious laugh, Tom never knew a stranger.

A service and celebration of his life will be held at the Manor Tavern 15819 Old York Road Monkton, Maryland  21111 on Monday December 11, 2017 at 1:00 PM.  In lieu of flowers Tom would wish that you consider a donation the Disabled Veterans of America,  E.G.

Diana, Brian and Sabrina,
Sorry the laughter has dimmed and for your loss. He was a well loved man (even if he told terrible jokes). Love Theresa

Just received the news minutes ago.I don't know what to say.

I first met Tom in 1983 when I started to work as a sales rep at The Winner Distributing Company.We hit it off immediately as we were both former Marines and now were sharing life in the beer business. I could type for hours of stories and adventures that we shared. Without a doubt Tom was the very BEST, Number 1,head and shoulders over and above any other beer man on the street.He took care of his product,his customers,his co-workers and made it a huge part of his life.

I was very fortunate to be invited to his annual "tree trimming" party and shared dinners with Lady Di and he at Joseph's,and we always got together ,or at least in touch on 10 November; our Marine Corps Birthday.

I retired and moved to Myrtle Beach,SC almost 5 years ago.We continued to stay in touch and Tom and Di visited here and we spent time together.

To Di and the children I want to express my sincerest sympathy.I know condolences are tending to bounce off of you at this time.I am so sorry for "our" loss,but want you to know how fortunate I was to have shared in life with Tom !

My thoughts and prayers are with you !

Diana, I was very sad to hear about Tom. He was such a wonderful person! Jack and I were prepared to come. The snow just didn't cooperate. I am thinking of you and your family. I really wanted to be there for you, like you have always been here for me and my family. I love you and will be praying for you. If you are up for me to come, after the weather clears, I would love to come visit you. When you feel up to it, I'll come, you can let me know when that is.
Love you,
