Condolence & Memory Journal

Tom was my cousin, we grew up together in Milwaukee. He was also my friend. Tom and Linda always opened up their home to me when I visited from California. At times he would call me, and disguise his voice, he got me every time! And then there were his fishing stories. Always with a hint of being naughty. Made me laugh. My dear, Tom, who will I mail Easter decor to for their birthday? Love, you, Blue Cheese Louise

Linda and Family,

Tom was one of the coolest people we knew. Always wore a smile and just an incredible human being. His fight with cancer, just showed what a "true" marine he stayed till the end. Our dear friend will be missed. Very sorry for your loss.

Prayes, Love and Peace,

Retired MCSO Captain Mark Witek and Captain Kathleen Sullivan-Witek.

We wish to extend our deepest sympathy in the passing of Tom, to Linda and her family. Tom will be greatly missed by us, and by very many others. He was a very happy and outgoing person, always with that infectious smile, and a few jokes too. We will always remember him by one of his favorite expressions.....
"WINNER, WINNER..... CHICKEN DINNER!"
Tom's suffering is now over, and he is at peace with the Lord in heaven.
God Bless you Tom, and keep you in his heavenly care!
