Thomas Stefancik, age 78, of Linton, passed away peacefully at 9:44 am on Monday, March 11, 2019, at his residence. He was born on January 21, 1941 to John and Anna (Scecina) Stefancik in Linton.
Tom married Julie LeFebvre on September 3, 1962. He was a graduate of St. Peter's Catholic Church School and he also graduated in 1958 from Linton-Stockton High School.
He was a retired master electrician from Peabody Coal Company, although his first love was farming his land west of Linton. His ingenuity in adapting his equipment allowed him to keep on farming until just a few years ago even though he suffered from severe Rheumatoid Arthritis and Diabetes. He helped everyone he met as best he could in ways both big and small, physically and with visits to anyone who was ill or need cheering up.
He was a member of the Linton Jaycees, earning the Jaycee International Senatorship Award for community and charity volunteer work. He was also a member of the United Mine Workers Association and St. Peter Catholic Church.
Tom is survived by his loving wife of 56 years, Julie (LeFebvre) Stefancik of Linton; children, Brad (Deloris) Stefancik of Linton, Susan (Jeff) McKinly of Brownsburg and Sandra (Scott) Layer of Palm Harbor, FL; grandchildren, Brady Stefancik, Nick and Valerie Horein, Sevin Layer, Sylver Layer and Senate Layer; great granddaughter, Cambria Horein; siblings, Rudy (Daphyne) Stefancik, Dorothy (CB) Duncan, Steve (Margaret) Stefancik, Veronica (Terry) Weaver and Frank Stefancik.
He was preceded in death by his brothers, Alfred Stefancik and John Stefancik; sisters, Mary Hasara, Juliana Stefancik and Theresa Frabutt and niece, Theresa Hasara.
