Obituary of Thomas Betz

Thomas Bisel Betz, “Fubert”, died suddenly in his home on Oct 10th, 2017 in Egg Harbor Twp., NJ at the age of 56.

Tom is survived by his wife, Pamela Betz (nee Cookson); children, Thomas Betz Jr., Andrew Betz (Silviya), Jillian Betz; siblings, Randal Betz (Betsey) Judy Zuch (Frank) James Betz (Donna) and many aunts, uncles, cousins, nieces, nephews, and friends; He is preceded in death by his mother, father, and grandparents. 

Tom was born on Dec 18, 1960 in Philadelphia, PA to James and Lois Betz. He graduated from Neshaminy Maple Point High School in 1979. Tom married and settled down in Langhorne, PA where he raised his adored three children. His children brought the greatest joy to his life and he always said, “They are the biggest accomplishments in my life.” His occupation was supervisor of shipping and receiving at the family owned George T. Bisel Company for over thirty years.

Of his many skills, some of the proudest achievements he had were: an accomplished swimmer having mastered the butterfly, an avid skier on snow and water, and an instructor who enjoyed his annual skiing trip at Shawnee Mountain. He delightedly embraced his summers spent with his St Charles Place family every year in OCNJ and always looked forward to the next summer. In his spare time you could find him mastering his next model ship, running his H.O. trains, surfing the Mid-Atlantic, and strumming on his guitar to the inspiring Led Zeppelin. More recently, his greatest pleasure was cruising around town in his ’78 Corvette. Tom was the epitome of trial and triumph and he will be most remembered for his infectious smiles and laughter to everyone in his presence. 

Please join us for a celebration of his life on Sunday Oct 29th at 1pm, Greate Bay Country Club, 901 Mays Landing Rd, Somers Point, NJ 08244.  In lieu of flowers, and in his honor, please donate to Big Brothers/Big Sisters of America.
