It is with a very heavy heart that we inform you of the passing of our Executive Director, Tom Shrump. Our deepest condolences go to his wife Heather, children Rylee and Kassady, parents Thomas and Barbara Shrump, and the rest of their family.
Tom has been the TRWEA Executive Director since 2016 and was a contest coordinator for many years prior. In addition to his TRWEA roles, Tom was the head of the WGI Pittsburgh Regional, former chair of the Norwin Band Aides, and involved in many other ways. This activity was truly a family affair for Tom, and the TRWEA family was part of that. Tom always kept the focus on the most important part of this circuit, the performers. Tom will be sorely missed by everyone.
In lieu of flowers, the family suggests to please consider a memorial donation be made to Norwin Band Aides, P.O. Box 303, Irwin, PA 15642. Friends will be received from 6 to 8 p.m. Saturday and 2 to 4 and 6 to 8 p.m. Sunday at Ott Funeral Home, 805 Pennsylvania Ave., Irwin, PA 15642. Services and Interment will be private.
