We, Bob Fusco and I are so sad, visiting you and Mary when our trips to the cabin allowed we always got together for games of cribbage guys against the girls or partners win or lose who really kept track, with Tom’s specialty gimlet in hand . Tom was a thirst of knowledge whatever the subject he always found the resolution no matter if it were 2 trips or 3 tris to the Ace hardware store or maybe 4 … the problem was always taken care of. Our favorite going out for supper whether it was all you could chicken or or a nice burger or steak and drinks….Cheers to you our dear dear friend thanks for all the laughs and stories and the times well spent with you and Mary on the pontoon and swimming or just plain sitting and drinking around the bonfire… proud to say we have a few art pieces from Tom the snake puzzle probably the favorite of our grandkids Cam and Cody… Tom always had time to give to them too making them the captain of the pontoon! I could go on with the stories of Tom but knowing now he has no pain, that gives us some comfort. He’s with our Lord keeping an eye out to all his family and friends. We will miss you but never forget you Tom! I love you❤️

My deepest sympathies to Mary and family. Tom was such a kind and caring person who will be missed very much.

Mike and Marion Cumming

We’re so sorry to hear of the death of this beautiful man. We always remember him smiling with love in his eyes. I’m sure he’s with God in heaven because he was good, kind, and caring to everyone. Our apologies for not being there, but we are out of state. Our hearts are with you, Mary. Take good care of yourself as you learn to be without him by your side.

I am sorry to here about my friend and coworker Tom Passing. I very much enjoyed working with him , he had a vast knowledge of construction and maintenance. I relied on him often for help and advice. I spent time with him socially on the golf course, his sense of humor was contagious and we had a lot of laughs. We need more people like Tom in the world. He will be missed. My prayers go out to the Keyser family. Sorry I can’t be there as I am in Florida for the Winter. Dan

Tom taught me a lot things while he worked at NWTC if I had a question Tom always had time to help me out. We all had a good time working with him threw the years . Kathy an I are sending prayers to Mary and Tom’s family.

Jerry Homel and Susan Ellis

We just received the message about Tom passing to his eternal reward (and we are certain it will be wonderful) Tom and Jerry were the best of friends and had many interests in common—-woodworking, building and the great north woods. They were commonly referred to as Tom and Jerry at NWTC where they worked together for many years. Tom and Mary were also personal friends of Susan and Jerry and there were many happy times together—-partying, laughing and traveling and enjoying Tom’s great sense of humor. The world was a better place with Tom, Mary and the family and we will sorely miss him as will many others. Our prayers are with you all, God Speed to your eternal resting place and God bless you all. love and prayers, Susan and Jerry

Kathy Myrick Jerlinga

Oh, the wonderful times we have had over the 38 years I have known Tom and two of his brothers while working at NWTC. Tom made the best ‘gimmies,’ BBQ’d some great food, took us to some tasty breakfast places, and toured us around his beautiful northern woods and waterfalls. I have always treasured the several ‘wood art’ pieces he made for me. Rest In Peace, friend. Hugs and Prayers, Mary and Family.

Pat & Mary

You have our deepest sympathy thoughts and prayers are with you all. We love you!! Take care Mary.
