I knew Tom and Elaine as a child, they lived upstairs from us. I remember the day they got married. They were such kind sweet people, and Tom made a big impression on me as I watched him go to work and come home as a firefighter. My parents were very sad when they moved away, and we always wondered how they were. My sincere condolences to the family
You may of seen me when I was a child or never at all but may you rest in peace great uncle Tom. I don't get out much. But your funeral has touched my soul. Came in not knowing who u were and left like I did know. U are my family. Thank you for touching so many lives. You are a hero. Beautiful funeral it was. And the food was amazing. Happy someone was able to play that song landslide by Fleetwood Mac for ya, I cried alot. Hope you are having a nice time in heaven! Xoxo ps. Even tho I wasn't invited I'm happy I came, I met Bobbie my second cousin. She's really nice 🙂 funerals does make people come together. Hug your people was a point being said and I'll make sure to do so.
I was sorry to hear about Tom. He always made me laugh when we were young and hanging out at our Grandparents house. My condolences to Elaine, your family and to Tom's siblings...my Wagner cousins. Sending love from Denver. Lucy
There are very few people lucky enough to become a firefighter and to have the privilege to have worked with a be friends of Tom's is the greatest. I will miss the days when we were young guys chasing fires on our offs. I will miss Tom. My best to Elaine, Michael, Peter and Robert
I was blessed to have Tom as a friend and coworker on the Milwaukee Fire Dept. He had a heart of gold, was just, wise, hard-working, and full of life. His humor was endless. He'll be greatly missed. Rest in peace, Tom. May the space left by his passing be filled with fond memories for Elaine and sons.
Peace of mind is a call away. We’re here when you need us most.
Dan and I are so sorry to hear about Tom's passing.
We moved down the the alley from him almost 20 years ago, and Dan spent many hours talking with him about fishing, and many times for me asking about my father who served with him in the FF dept, he loved his liver and onions.
He will be greatly missed in the neighborhood.
May your tears of sorrow, turn into tears of laughter as you remember, the go0d times you had.
Dan & Janet Urbaniak

Tom was a true and honest friend -- both at work and socially. He broke me in on my first interior fire. We worked on many off-duty jobs also. He would always give his best. We had great times fishing and riding bikes -- his Harley and my Honda. I will miss you, buddy! Our deepest sympathies to you, Elaine and your boys.
I am privileged to say and know a man like Tom. Tom became a man made of gold , refined by fire, and pure at the finish. Tom’s wisdom, justice, courage and sense of humor was a gift to all of us.
I along with many others, have lost a great friend of many years, on May 5th, 2022. was a sad day for me & many others. We lost
