From his birth on September 6, 1964 in Milwaukee, until his passing on January 10, 2018 in Mayville, Tom filled the lives of those around him with joy.
He grew up in Wauwatosa and graduated from Messmer High School. He decided to pursue his passion of caring for others. He graduated from Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Minneapolis in 1999 and has served his patients for many years at Aurora Health Care in Hartford and Waukesha.
Tom and Melanie were united in marriage on May 18, 2002. They are blessed with two amazing children, Avi (13) and Haven (10).
Nothing made Tom happier than spending time with family, building memories together. Growing up, he especially loved summertime at the family resort on Lake Thompson near Rhinelander. Tom shared his wife’s passion for travel. Their favorite adventure was their yearly family vacation to Aruba.
Tom is survived by the love of his life, Melanie; his treasured daughters, Avi and Haven; his parents, Norbert and Jane Siegel; father and mother-in-law, Red and Trudy DeKarske; his siblings Lynn (Tom), Jim (Kathy), Julie (Scott), and Dave (Jenny); his nieces and nephews, Simon (Jena), Aaron, Isaac, Angie, Jonathan, and Karissa; aunts, uncles, many cousins, friends, neighbors, co-workers, and patients.
We were all touched by Tom’s soft-spoken compassion, patience, humor, and generosity. We will carry forward with those memories forever in our hearts
