Obituary

Thomas C. Jagger, Jr. of Greensburg passed away on Sunday, December 29, 2019 surrounded by his loving family.  Ninety-two years old, Tom was born March 24, 1927 in Braddock, a son of the late Thomas C. Sr. and Madeline (Ralston) Jagger.  He was a graduate of Robert Morris College. Prior to retirement he worked as controller for T & W Forge Co., Alliance, Ohio. Always happy to be helping others, Tom was an active member and volunteer at Harrold Zion Evangelical Lutheran Church, Greensburg.  He was also a member of the Elks and volunteered for the Red Cross. A veteran and a member of the Greatest Generation, Tom served in the Navy during WWII. For sixty years, Tom was married to the love of his life, Edith (Phillips) Jagger. They were married on September 18, 1959, and she survives at home. Tom was a wonderful husband and father with an irrepressible sense of humor. He delighted in provoking laughs with quietly uttered outrageous comments, and he loved spending time with his family. In addition to his parents he was preceded in death by his brother, Robert Jagger.  In addition to his wife Edith, Tom is survived by his son, Thomas C. Jagger, III and wife Amy, of San Francisco, CA; his daughter, Linda (Jagger) Comm and husband Joseph, of Greensburg; and four grandchildren, Christian, Caitlyn, Chloe, and Matthew.
