We met Tom at the Lomira American Legion and he always had a smile on his face and he always had something nice to say to put a smile on your face. We will always have our memories of him driving around town with the top down on his convertible and stopping by our house when we would be outside with something smart to say with that smile of his. We will hold our memories of him forever in our hearts. Rest in Peace Tom!

Tom was a wonderful neighbor when we lived next to each other in Lomira. He brought the neighborhood together with his genuine laughter, friendship, and smiles. I'll never forget that he always kept a box of dog treats in his garage specifically for my dog. She made a beeline for his place the minute I let her outside. He will truly be missed.
