Born February 14, 1935 in West Allis, WI, he was the son of the late William T. Wambach, Sr. and Julia (Cleary) Wambach.  Tom was a 1957 graduate of Marquette University School of Engineering. He spent two years as a commissioned officer in the U.S. Navy.  He was employed by Allis Chalmers Mfg.

He was preceded in death by brothers James Wambach and Theodore Wambach.  Tom’s interests were golf, chess, classical music and watching the NFL especially the Green Bay Packers.  He was a member of the VFW of Hanover and Annunciation BVM Parish in McSherrystown.  Tom was very generous not only with family but numerous charities and donated time and blood every year until he became ill.  He was a Eucharistic Minister for his previous church in Maryland for at least 20 years.  He taught religious classes, assisted with coaching baseball and carpooled to many events.  He loved his family unconditionally.  Funeral arrangements are with Murphy Funeral Home, McSherrystown. Per Tom’s wishes, services will be private and at the convenience of the family.
