Tom had a passion for many things, including Harley Davidson’s, football, cars and water skiing. He was a very detail oriented, hardworking man who enjoyed detailing and fixing up cars to sell, driving semi for local businesses and listening to AC/DC. Once Tom started a project or task, he was one to get it done. But nothing brought him more joy than spending time with his family and friends. Although he may not have shown it in the traditional sense, he was a very loving, caring and sincere man who will be missed by many.
Left to cherish his memory are his sons; AJ (Kim), of Winnebago and Jesse (Alesha), of Ft. Worth, Texas; his parents, Tony and Leta, of Winnebago; sister, Tamara (Tom) Haight, of Rochester and Tara (Brent) Collins, of Minnetrista; nieces; Ashley (Dan) Stensland, Kathryn and Kristin Collins; nephews, Seth and Eli Haight; as well as many other extended family members and friends.
