Life Story / Obituary
Mr. Thomas Rice Costas, age 72, passed away Friday, November 3, 2017, surrounded by the love of his foster family, the King Family, of Rothbury. Tom was born in Indianapolis, Indiana on October 23, 1945 to George & Jane (Lambert) Costas and honorably served his country in the US Army during the Vietnam War. A quiet man, Tom personified the proverb“ Still waters run deep”. Intelligent, thoughtful, always courteous, Tom loved to read, favoring the writings of war veterans like himself. He often comforted others with his favorite psalm, Psalm 61:2, “When my heart is overwhelmed, lead me to the Rock that is higher than I.”
Tom is survived by his sister, Barbara Costas of Oak Park IL; brother, George Costas of Cambodia; several nieces and nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents and brother, Peter.
