Thomas A. Roulston, age 78, passed away peacefully surrounded by his family at his home in Saint Louis, Missouri on Wednesday, August 8, 2018. He was the youngest son of Andrew and Dorothy (nee Pelt) Roulston, born October 13, 1939. The son of a vintage car enthusiast, he developed an early interest in automotive repair.

In his early years he worked in the construction heavy equipment field. He belonged to the Horseless Carriage Club, the Packard Club, and the Mercedes-Benz Club. He enjoyed antique car shows, traveling, and spending time celebrating holidays and parties with family and friends. He loved his dogs and insisted on having one even until the end.

He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Gail (nee Zdanowski) Roulston, his son Thomas (Martha) Roulston, and daughters Rita Roulston, Gina (Newt) Gorman and Sarah Roulston. He leaves behind his sisters Patricia (Roulston) Knehans, June (Roulston) Lurkins and preceded in death by his parents and brother Jack Roulston. He is the beloved grandfather of Jennifer, Katy and Jack, great grandfather of Alana, Ryan, Amos, Lydia and Sebastian and beloved dog Lila. He was a cherished uncle, cousin and friend to many.
