It is with great sadness that we announce the passing of Tom Kepler. He passed away peacefully at home on Sunday, October 22, 2023 after a two-year battle with ALS . Born in Dover, most of his early years were spent in Rockaway Township. He graduated from Morris Hills and later he moved to Byram where he resided for the past 37 years.
Tom was a dedicated worker who had a 30-year career with Howmet Aerospace. While his children were young, Tom was present in their lives, working midnight shift to ensure his children would always have someone available.
