Obituary for Ivor Thomas Groman

Son of Edward and Ivah Kimbrel Groman, Tom was born April 29, 1933 in Dodge City, Kansas. He was raised and schooled all over the United States, as his family moved frequently. From 1952 to 1956 he served our country in the Air Force. He married Virginia Kathryn Blum on November 5, 1955. Tom and Virginia received Jesus Christ as their Savior on July 4, 1962 while watching a Billy Graham Crusade. Tom went to Multnomah School of the Bible and became a pastor and missionary. Tom and Virginia worked for Youth for Christ and had a halfway house for teenage boys for two years in Portland, Oregon. In 1968 the Gromans moved to Edinburg, Texas to attend language school. They moved to Mexico in 1969 and became full-time missionaries for the rest of their lives serving the Lord faithfully, leading many to the Lord Jesus and planting churches in Mexico, New Mexico and Oregon. Tom’s greatest passion was to share the love of the Lord Jesus with others so that they might put their faith and trust in Him. Tom was a loving, kind, playful, fantastic dad, grandpa, and great grandpa.
He was preceded in death by his wife, Virginia and by his son Matthew.
He is survived by his daughter Julie Kay DeForrest and his sons, Thomas and Andrew Groman.
His grandchildren: Kirsten Giesy, Zahuindanda DeForrest, Judah DeForrest, Audrey Groman, Alexa Groman, Jacob Groman, and Zander Groman. His great grandchildren: Zion DeForrest, Wyatt Giesy, Isabella DeForrest, Asa Giesy, and Mila Groman.
