Thomas Edward Gassler was a loving dad, spouse, friend, and confidant. He had an amazing personality and was always willing to share his knowledge of the world with others. One of his favorite sayings was "you gotta be smarter than it is". He was the kind of person you could sit down and have a long conversation with, and not be judged for it, no matter that topic. He taught us all how to look at the world from different angles and forced us to see the world in shades of gray, not just black and white. Thomas was an Army veteran, a veteran long haul trucker of sixteen years, and the best man I have ever known.

Thomas was born on April 19, 1958 and later found his wings on March 7th 2020. After a long battle with small cell lung cancer he has gone to meet our Father in Heaven. Thomas is survived by his oldest children April Gassler and Alicia Gassler, his wife, Peggy Gassler, her three children, Cory Laone, Ashley Esparza, and Angelica Laone. Ashley Esparza and Antonio Esparza, gave Tom two wonderful grandchildren: Emily and Carmen. Cory Laone gave Tom his first grandson Jayden. He is also survived by his sister, Ann Inman, his brother Mike Gassler, and stepmother, Mary Gassler. Tom and Peggy were living with Ashley, Tony, Emily, and Carmen in Bakersfield, CA until he went into hospice on March 5th, 2020.

Tom is being cremated and will have a small private service. Family will scatter his ashes on Catalina Island when Alicia, Ann, and April go on the cruise they planned to take with him that was on his bucket list. Several members of his family have been laid to rest on Catalina Island and we're continuing that tradition.
