SubscriberWise Honors Lifelong and Proud Massillon Resident Tom Hilbert with One Thousand Dollar Donation to Stark County Humane Society

SubscriberWise founder and CEO directs Massillon-based CRA to pay tribute to a devoted family man, local legend, friend-to-many, lifelong Tigers fan, and animal lover

MASSILLON, Ohio--()--SubscriberWise, the nation’s largest issuing consumer reporting agency for the communications industry and the leading protector of children victimized by identity fraud, announced today a $1000.00 cash donation to the Stark County Humane Society in memory of Thomas Harry Hilbert 1937-2018.

“Like so many others, I’m distinctly privileged to call Tom Hilbert my dear friend of more than 34 years,” said David E. Howe, SubscriberWise founder, FICO champion of the world, United States Credit Czar, and America’s child identity guardian. “I was fortunate enough to meet Tom because of my friendship with his son, Dan,” Howe explained. “When I received the news of his passing, it literally hit me like a ton of bricks. I can only imagine the experience for his family and the myriad of others who knew and loved Tom."

“Today, like every single person who had the good fortune and pleasure to know Tom, I am feeling the loss with sorrow while also trying to reflect on the good times with delight; I’m glad there were so many good times indeed.

“But it’s an understatement to say that I will deeply miss Tom,” acknowledged Howe.

“It’s remarkable really,” continued Howe. “Everyone who knew Tom, each will instantly and personally acknowledge this man’s natural ability, including his undeniably genuine desire, to lift others up and to always make everyone feel special and welcome. Indeed, everyone has a story or a circumstance that they can recall fondly. At the same time, it was Tom’s warm, easy-going, and happy disposition that moved so many to distinguish him as the truly kind person and real friend that he always proved to be.

“Today, I want the record to reflect, Tom certainly demonstrated this thoughtfulness and kindness for me personally in a number of meaningful ways that I will never forget,” the Credit Czar emphasized. “Among all the positive attributes that I sincerely appreciate, Tom was a person who ‘lived and let live’ -- and that’s no mere cliché as it related to his kind manner and character. Frankly, that’s who Tom was and that’s why he was loved by so many,” the chief executive stated. “It’s too bad the rest of the world is so slow to imitate the life and actions of this gentle giant. No doubt the world would be a better place if that were the case."

“From my perspective, there’s no doubt that the Stark County Humane Society most reflects not only Tom’s open and generous humanity toward others, but also his relentless love and compassion for the four-legged friends that he adopted, cared for, and cherished over the decades in his family’s warm and welcoming neighborhood home.

“Blessed be Tom Hilbert -- a true friend to all in not just words but in deeds,” David E. Howe concluded.
