  1. Mikki Sechen (Pawlik) condolence:

    Yes Tom, you will be missed. Knew you as a neighbor but always as a friend. Brookfield was certainly a better place to live with you here. But now you’re in a wonderful worry free,pain free, tax free place. God was waiting for you but you just wanted to make a grand entrance.

  2. Tony Pawlik condolence:

    Tom was always a good guy to talk to, we had many talks over the fence between my home and Kathy & Joe’s, Brookfield 4th of July parades, etc. May he rest in peace with the Angels.

  3. Judy & TomJung condolence:

    We have known Tom since 1994 when he became our daughter, Tara’s, father-in-law. Since then, Dorothy & Tom have become our good friends, having fun together in AZ, a cruise, & a couple of visits at our lake home in MI. We have wonderful memories from family gatherings at Tara & Rick’s home & also at the family home in Brookfield. We had lots of “toasts” around the family room bar while the biggest turkey that could fit in the oven was baking! Tom was a wonderful “chef” & host! He will be missed by all who knew & loved him. He is so blessed to be with our Lord, happy & healthy. We’ll all rejoice when we meet again in that perfect place we call “Heaven”.

  4. Sandy Bloch condolence:

    I am an AGH Volunteer and met Thomas once. When I asked if I could visit him again, he replied “any time”. My heart and Prayers go out to all of his Family.

    I know Thomas is at Peace now and I thank God I got to meet him!

    Blessings, Sandy
