Thomas Joseph Ammerman

Thomas Ammerman

Tom Ammerman, a 1974 graduate of Villanova and marketing manager for the shipping firm United States Navigation, Inc., was returning home to his family after a three-week trip to Europe to set up marketing for new services between Europe and Saudi Arabia. At Tom's memorial service, he was eulogized as "an interior sort of man; there was a quietness, an inner calm, a depth of being about him." The Thomas Joseph Ammerman Family Papers, including several photographs of the damage to Rosebank and Sherwood Crescents, have been donated by his brother, Bert Ammerman.
