In memory of
Thomas Lafferty (Tom) Adleta
Thomas (Tom) Lafferty Adleta was born October 11, 1940, in Dallas, Texas, and passed into God's loving care on October 2, 2020, from chronic heart disease, just nine days before his 80th birthday. Tom graduated from Hillcrest High School and the University of Texas at Austin. A true patriot, he honorably served his country as a U.S. Army Military Police (MP) in Germany. Tom was intelligent, clever, flamboyant, and fun!! He loved golf, the Texas Longhorns, "planes, trains, and automobiles" but most of all, he loved his family and his God. Tom was the beloved husband of Elizabeth (Liz) Adleta for 41 years, and devoted to his 10 children and 19 grandchildren. A man who lived his strong faith, Tom received his Master of Arts in Missions at Regent University in Virginia and continued to travel the world with his family on a mission for Christ. Tom and his older brother, Jack, were blessed to be the sons of the late Marie and Charles Adleta, nephews of the late Dorothy and Howard Adleta, and cousins to Sue Adleta Mulhausen. In 1920, their late grandfather, E. C. Adleta, Sr., with the support of his wife, Myrtle, founded The Adleta Corporation which is celebrating its 100th Anniversary this year, and is now being led by the third generation. Jack and his wife, Dianne, along with the The Adleta Corporation family, lovingly honor Tom who fed thousands internationally during his mission work. In keeping with the spirit of his mission, a fitting tribute would be a donation, in memory of Tom Adleta, to the North Texas Food Bank give.ntfb.org which also feeds thousands every day. A memorial service was held on October 7, 2020. May God give us comfort and hope in knowing that one day we will reunite with Tommy.
