Thomas Paul Hafner

January 2, 1961 ~ May 16, 2022 (age 61)


Thomas Paul Hafner, 61, affectionately known as "Tapper," of Toledo, OH, passed away Monday, May 16th, 2022. Tom was born in Toledo, OH, January 2nd, 1961, to parents, Leonard and Mary (Beno) Hafner, the 8th of 13 children. Tom attended Central Catholic High School after which he began a long career, the majority spent as Transportation Manager at Sofo Foods, before semi-retiring in 2014. Armed with an endless array of entertaining stories growing up in such a large family and having 6 children of his own, Tom's infectiously gregarious nature allowed him to make friends with a supernatural ease. Tom's love and loyalty for his family leaves an indelible and infinite inspiration for what is truly important in life. Tom enjoyed golfing, poker, home improvement projects, and rooting on the Ohio State Buckeyes, Boston Celtics and Miami Dolphins with friends and family. Tom is survived by his daughters, Lauren and Ella Hafner; sons, Nicholas, Alex, Ryan and Logan Hafner; sisters, Theresa (Brian) Burgin and Mary (Mike) Pederi; brothers, Daniel (Beth), James, William (Karen), Theodore (Pam), Joseph (Sue), John (Michelle), Raymond (Patti), Carl (Jody) Hafner; and former wives and friends, Lori and Heather. Tom was preceded in death by his parents, Mary and Leonard; and brothers, Charles and Lawrence.
