Tommy Warren "Tom" Aultman

CHULA — Tommy Warren "Tom" Aultman, 71, died Friday, Feb. 15, 2013, at his residence following an extended illness.  Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. Monday, in the chapel of Bowen-Donaldson Home for Funerals.  The Rev. David Matthews will officiate with burial to follow in Oakridge Cemetery.  The family will receive friends Monday, from noon-2 p.m., prior to the service, at Bowen-Donaldson Home for Funerals.

Mr. Aultman was born on June 7, 1941 and was the son of Warren Aultman and Frances Hogan Aultman, both deceased.  Tom was a graduate of Ocilla High School and the University of Georgia.  He was an Independent Insurance Adjuster specializing in catastrophic losses.  During his career, he traveled across the United States to adjust claims caused by earthquakes, fires, floods and hurricanes, at times spending months away from home.

Tom's early years were spent on the Hogan Farm in Chula or the Aultman Farm in Tifton with his many cousins riding horses, swimming in the pond and playing the games of a youth that did not know computers were on the horizon.  The cousins who have all stayed in touch throughout the years and will miss him are: James "Buck" Aultman, Margaret Aultman, Kathryn Aultman, Robert Aultman, John Hiers, Mary Hiers Treadaway, Barry Hogan, Susan Sedlick Brennan, Frances Baltes Tidd, Dave Matthews, Joe Baltes, Ric Hogan, Jim Matthews, Mike Sedlick, DaBo Hogan, Steve Hogan, Ed Matthews, Michele Hogan Sheaffer and David Hogan.

The family gives special thanks to caregiver and friend, Susan Chambers, for her dedication in caring for Tom during his illnesses.  We also thank the other members of the team who assisted in his care.

Tom was also a very special nephew to his Mother's sisters - Virginia Sedlick, Betty Matthews, Becky Baltes (deceased) and Louise Hiers (deceased).

You may offer condolences to the family at the online guest registry at www.bowen-donaldson.com.  Arrangements for the Aultman family are under the care and direction of Bowen-Donaldson Home for Funerals.
