He was born in Erie on January 3, 1953, the son of the late Robert and Genevieve Mehler. Tom was a graduate of OLCS and a 1971 graduate of McDowell H.S.

He was a life-time member of the Erie Maennerchor Club. Tom loved the sun! It was his happy place. He enjoyed relaxing by a fire and just being at home. He cherished his time with his granddaughter Hanna. The last few years really took a toll on his body; one issue after the other. As stubborn as he was, his immunity was just too weak to handle it. DAMN IT DAD. He was preceded in death by his parents and a brother Robert Mehler, Jr. Tom is survived by his wife and high school sweetheart of 47 years, Becky Middleton Mehler, two daughters; Ann Dunlavey (Kevin) of Fairview, Carly Heubel (Shawn) of Leesburg, VA, his granddaughter Hanna Dunlavey, two brothers; David Mehler (Paula), Jack Mehler (Meghan), one sister Jane Mehler, and his special sister-in-law Patty Sperry, and many close cousins.
