Tom Bender

Tom Bender
September 24, 1941 - March 4, 2020

Tom is now an Ancestor. He marched fourth intentionally using Oregon's "Death with Dignity" protocol with his two sons by his side when his metastasized bone cancer was no longer bearable. It was just before the pandemic hit so there was no memorial service though there were several small ceremonies to carry out the extensive list of local places he wanted his ashes scattered, the last of which went into a ceremonial fire.
