The entire Roxbury Congregational Church community and the Town of Roxbury(VT) mourn the loss of Thomas ‘Tom’ Chester Chomentowski, who passed away at home on Sept. 11, 2020. A pillar in the community and the love of his wife Claire’s life, Tom will be greatly missed by all who knew him. A celebration of life will take place at a later date.
