The Dundalk Eagle - - OBITUARIES -

— Thomas Lee Grove, 68 of Abing­don, MD, peace­fully passed away on July 24, 2020. Thomas was born in Bal­ti­more, MD on April 14, 1952 to the late Elmer and Hazel Grove. He was lov­ingly sup­ported by his guardians Kathryn Long and the late Wil­liam Long, Jr. He grad­u­ated from Spar­rows Point High School in 1974.

He is sur­vived by his wife, Robin (Fer­rara) of 34 years; his daugh­ters: Kristin and her hus­band Ja­cob Evans; Lori and her hus­band Michael Dick­ens; grand­chil­dren: Gabriel and Ge­or­gia Dick­ens; broth­ers: Charles and wife Ginny Long and Wil­liam Long, III and wife Kathy Long; and sis­ter, Lenora Long. Also sur­vived by many lov­ing ex­tended fam­ily mem­bers and friends.

In April 2012 he be­came the re­cip­i­ent of a left ven­tric­u­lar as­sist de­vice (LVAD). Even though the odds were stacked against him, he never gave up and he fought with a smile on his face un­til the very end.

Thomas was an avid John Wayne fan. He en­joyed swim­ming, bil­liards, cards, hunt­ing, fish­ing, and roller skat­ing in his younger days. You could often find him in Ocean City, Mary­land sit­ting on the benches watch­ing the boats go out in the morn­ing. Al­ways smil­ing, he ap­proached life’s chal­lenges with hu­mor and proved time and again that he had “True Grit.”

A Cel­e­bra­tion of Life will be sched­uled at a later date.
