In Memoriam

Thomas M. Mettler

1932 - 2013

Tom was a highly respected community leader who loved Palm Beach.  We will miss his support and enthusiasm for our mission of protecting the community.

A longtime Palm Beach resident, Tom was dedicated to the Town.  He served on the Town Council from 1975 to 1982 and as council president in 1981 and 1982.  He was a municipal judge for the Town and chairman of the Town’s Employee Retirement System Board.

Tom practiced law in Palm Beach for 50 years.  In addition to his involvement with the Civic Association, he served on the boards of Good Samaritan Hospital and the Rehabilitation Center for Children and Adults.

At the Civic Association, we will miss this very special man.  We extend our deepest sympathy to his wife, Sally, and his family.
