Obituary: Tom McDevitt

Wednesday, May 5, 2010 11:50 AM - GateHouse Media, Inc. 

The Rev. (Father) Tom McDevitt passed away May 3, 2010 at the age of 77. He was born Oct. 5, 1932, the son of Gerald and Alice McDevitt. He was a 1950 graduate of St. Mary’s High School, Jackson. Fr. Tom was ordained on June 29, 1958 in Louvain, Belgium. After attending Sacred Heart Seminary in Detroit, he completed seminary at the American College in Louvain, Belgium. In 2000, he reached Senior Priest status (priests never really retire) at St. John Student Parish, East Lansing, but continued to be active in many areas. He was on the retreat team at St. Francis Retreat Center in DeWitt. He has been priest/chaplain and presenter at Retrouvaille weekends around the country and on the board of Retrouvaille International.  He has continued his love of learning, teaching, and preaching the word faithfully and with love: studying at Catholic Theological Union in Chicago and elsewhere, and teaching classes. As an International Fellow of Catholic Relief Services, he has traveled to Palestine and Israel and spoken at parishes throughout Michigan and beyond on behalf of the work done by CRS. Tom deeply loved his God, his family and friends, his fellow priests and his own life as a priest, celebrating the sacraments and ministering to the people. Prayer and meditation were staples of his life.  He liked a good game of cards or Scrabble, enjoyed bowling with the Knights of Columbus and with family and walking or riding his bike. He loved to sing, saying, “I believe everything when I sing.” He was enthralled with nature in its many forms; birds singing, surf pounding, stars at night. He had a great spirit of adventure both spiritually and concretely. Spiritually, this led him to explore different forms of spirituality and prayer, both Eastern and Western. Concretely that spirit led him to travel to many parts of the world, including a trip around the world with priest friends. In those travels he delighted in the culture, sights, and foods of each place he went. Now he is on the greatest adventure of his life. He was preceded in death by his parents; sister-in-law, Kay McDevitt and brother-in-law, Stas Karasek.  He is survived by his brothers, Jerry (Shirley) and Pat (Phyllis) McDevitt; sisters, Shirley (Bill) Phillips, Mary Karasek, and Kathy McDevitt; 18 nieces and nephews; 27 great-nieces and nephews; his much loved best friends, Fr. Jake Foglio and Jean Mather and family. A funeral Mass will be celebrated at 11 a.m. Thursday at St. John Church and Student Center, 327 MAC, East Lansing. The visitation will be held from 2-8 p.m. Wednesday at the church with a Scripture Service at 7 p.m. and one hour prior to the Mass on Thursday. The Rite of Committal will be held at 11 a.m. Friday in St. John’s Catholic Cemetery, Jackson. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Catholic Relief Services, 228 N. Walnut St., Lansing, MI, 48933-1122 in memory of Fr. Tom McDevitt. The family is being served by Gorsline Runciman Funeral Homes, East Lansing, Michigan. Online condolences may be made at
