Tom Waechter, one of Union Street Players’ founding members and a former Board Member, was memorialized yesterday in a service at Second Reformed Church where he was a life-long member. Tom passed away last week. Several USP members were present to pay their respects including Walk of Fame members Bev Graves, Pat Moriarity, Arvin Van Zante, Pat Van Zante, and Lisa Witzenburg. USP also sent a beautiful bouquet of flowers for the service.

During the service, Rev.

  1. Tom was a talented and kind friend. Easy to approach. Always encouraging no matter the subject. Ruth and I were very fond of him.
