Thomas Joseph Even, 79 years old of Gilbertville, IA, died Friday, July 15, 2022, at the Cedar Valley Hospice House in Waterloo, IA.

Tom was born March 8, 1943, in Black Hawk County, IA, the son of Anthony Herman “Tony” Even and Ella Catherine (Weber) Even. On May 20, 1963, he was united in marriage to Gloria Jan Walitshek at St. Joseph Catholic Church in Waterloo. Tom worked for Deere & Company in Waterloo until retiring in 1991.
