75, died Sunday, December 9, 2018 peacefully and in true Tom fashion, on his terms after suffering a ruptured AAA. He leaves his children, Dana and Steve; his grandchildren, Brayden and Lee; his brothers Kenny and Danny as well as his “favorite” sister, Barbara.

After a career at Anheuser-Busch as an electrician, Tom proudly traveled the world. His true passion was found on the dance floor so it was fitting that with music playing in the room, God took him to heaven. He looked forward to rejoining his  parents, Joe and Dorothy; his brothers Joe, Gary and Michael; and his dear friend, Barbara Dinges. He has many stories to tell, and for anyone who knows Tom, they know he will keep them  entertained for an eternity.

The family will train a new Santa on Christmas Eve and look to fill the silence Tom always filled when he entered a room.
