Pensinger, twin brother Allen R. Pensinger, his nephew Charlie Pensinger and wife Laura Pensinger and their son Allen J. Pensinger.
Thomas proudly served his country in the United States Air Force from 1960-1964.
In his younger years Thomas lived on his grandparents’ farm in Pennsylvania. He loved reminiscing and telling stories about life on the farm. He lived most of his life in Houston, Texas where he worked at Brown and Root. Thomas loved taking his son Tommy Jr. on fishing trips and his daughter Maria ice skating at the Houston Galleria. He loved and always wanted to help all animals, especially dogs. In his later years his beloved dog ‘Heavens to Betsy’ made her way to a new and loving home so Thomas could live at Riverside Nursing home. There he enjoyed playing Bingo and listening to old country music favorites. He met his best friend Robert “Bob” Kotell there and spent many years forming this new friendship.
A Celebration of Life Memorial Service will be held for Thomas at Trinity Lutheran Church 431 Philadelphia Avenue, Chambersburg, PA on Thursday July 22, 2021 at 7pm. He will be inurned at a later date at La Piedad Cemetery in McAllen, Tx.
