Thomas Schroeder

March 16, 1947 — November 30, 2021

On Tuesday, November 30th, 2021, Thomas Harold Schroeder, loving husband, father of two children and two grandchildren passed away at the age of 74.

Tom was born on March 16th, 1947, in Manning, IA to Harold and Bernice Schroeder. He received his Bachelor of Science degree in Agriculture Business from Iowa State in 1969 and had a long career in dairy production in many different places around the country. He was the proud parent of two children, Tommy and Tammy from his first marriage to Peggy Ann Lensing.

Tom was a simple man, but he loved to watch his sports. He had a passion for all his teams including the Iowa State Cyclones, of which Tom was given a scholarship to play football in his younger years. Tom could be counted on to have all the latest news on all the Denver professional teams, religiously watching the games and cheering for his teams - win or lose. His first date with his wife Kathy was to a Denver Broncos game. Tom also loved to support his kids and grandkids in their own sporting endeavors, always bragging about their accomplishments.

If you asked Tom what the most important thing to him was - he would always say his kids and his grandkids.

Tom was preceded in death by his parents, and his brother David. He leaves behind his wife of 18 years Katherine Jo Betts, his son Thomas Jacob Schroeder and his wife Sharon, his daughter Tamara Leigh Drozda and grandchildren Clifford 'Eddie' Drozda V and Emma Joy Drozda, as well as several step-children and friends.

a Graveside Celebration will be held on Saturday, June 4, 2022, at 10 AM at Manning Cemetery in Manning, Iowa. Tom's family also invites you to join them for a time of sharing at Cliff's Place following the graveside celebration.
