Tom graduated from Elmwood High School in 1960 and enlisted in the United States Army in 1962, serving during the Cuban Missile Crisis.  Tom worked at 3M for 37 years, retiring in 2000.  He enjoyed his days of retirement and was busier than ever.  

Tom loved working on classic cars, building houses, and fixing anything and everything. He was definitely a “jack of all trades.”

He is survived by his wife, Barbara; daughter, Michele of CA; sons, Brad (Christa) of FL; and Brent (Denise) of Hudson; grandchildren, Sarah & Erin Anderson, and Megan & Wyatt Anderson; along with his siblings, many other relatives and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, Lester and Viola Anderson; and brothers, Jerry and Roger Anderson.

A Gathering of Family and Friends was held 2:00 to 6:00 p.m. Sunday, February 28 at the O’Connell Family Funeral Home, 1010 Newton Street, Baldwin, WI.

He will be greatly missed.

    • Barb & Family – So sorry to hear about Tom’s passing we never saw any write up in the paper until yesterday morning. If we had only known we would have come to show our respect to him and all of you. It sure has been many years since we all had contact with each other, but we sure had a lot of good times and laughs when everyone played the co-rec softball here in Hudson, that seems like a lot of years ago doesn’t it. Just to let you know you are in our thoughts.

    • Barb and family,
      Please know we are all thinking of you and keeping you in our prayers. Tom was a wonderful father, husband and had a smile that lit up a room. He loved all of you so much and was so proud of his wonderful family. Our deepest sympathy is there with you and we wish we could be there to support you now as you say good bye. Lots of hugs and love.
