Married, Father of 4, Grandfather of 16 



                     Thomas R. Eades III is a loving father of four children, two step-children, and has fourteen grandchildren. He was born in 1951 and grew up in Richmond, Virginia. He attended St Bridget's elementary and Benedictine HS and went on to Ferrum Jr. College in 1969. He stared in football at both and then his football career ended just before signing with a major football team due to a back injury. His rough life as a sinner included biker gangs, bar fights, gang fights, addictions and more. He was also a business executive and owner, where his skills made him a needed asset throughout his career. Even after having two near death experiences he didn't learn. Because of his parents strong devotion to The Mother of God he was pulled back to his Catholic Faith. 

Then in May of 1993 through an experience at a religious apparition site he was pulled from the pits of hell. Through redemptive sufferings, prayers and the rosary Our Lady interceded for him to her son Jesus and pulled him from Hell's gate. Knowing he was giving a great gift he then became Gods servant. Tom served as a missionary in Siberia as part of the fulfillment of the Fatima promise, Mexico and many slums of America. In 1999 he became Seminarian, he finished all his Philosophy credits. Then during a leave of absents he was called to help the troubled youth. Moreover, at St. Luke's Mission in the slums of Buffalo, NY, he started The St. Don Bosco House for troubled youth where he brought the light of hope to the downtrodden, those battling addictions, trying to escape gang life and those struggling to attain the basics of life. He also spent time in Mexico at an orphanage doing the Lord's work. He has been a firsthand witness to personal miracles and experienced the healing power of Jesus. 

He is a Fourth Degree Knight and State Chairmen and District Deputy 6 in the Knights of Columbus. He is also active in his Church parish where he Chairs the Liturgy Committee on the parish council, teaches Religious Education and is involved in the youth programs and the prison ministry. He is the author of "Hope in the Darkness" and now is working on his second book on the individual missions. He is also the founder of a aftercare project to help these troubled youth, The Hope in the Darkness Project, which is in its start up phase. He is a Speaker who has spoken at hundreds of events. In 2010 he was married to his soul mate, Theresa. They live in the Potomac Highlands of West Virginia
