Dear Tess and family, It was a privilege to work for Chief Roberts as a paramedic firefighter in Kaukauna. I have nothing but the utmost respect and gratitude for this man. It was truly a pleasure to work under him. May the Lord Jesus continue to give you comfort as only He can.

DearTess, I am so sorry for your loss. You had mentioned he wasn't feeling well the last time we met and as I remember we all were in a hurry to get to our appointments and didn't have much time to talk. I will miss seeing both of you in the future, but that may be considered good luck as you,Harry,and I will be healthy. You are a strong woman with a sharp mind , hopefully, with that going for you, you will be able to endure the pain and suffering of the future. May God bless you and ease your pain Love, Tom

Tess , Ann & Steve and the entire Roberts family. My sympathy and condolences for your loss of Tom. He was a man you could truly say, “Never met a person he didn’t like”. Tom liked everyone and always had a kind word. After returning to Kaukauna after 30 years it was great to reconnect with Tom. We recently sat together at the wrestling matches and reminisced about good times working on the fire department, talking about sports, and things going on in the community. Conversation with Tom always covered a diversity of topics but the one thing he was really focused on was family and relatives. He was proud of them all and amazed me how he could remember each of them. RIP my good friend.
Peace of mind is a call away. We're here when you need us most.

Tess, Ann, and Family, It is with great sympathy that we write this. You always expect to have just one more day with those you love. Tom will be missed at St. Vincent dePaul, in this community, and by everyone he came in contact with. At St. Vincent dePaul, he continued to come in no matter what his struggles. He was diligent in what he could do. He loved finding those "treasures" to bring home to you Tess, to the grand kids (great grand kids), and to others he thought might need that little something. We are praying for you and know that Tom is forever in our hearts.
