Thomas Allen Ankley Obituary
Thomas Allen Ankley Ruby Thomas Allen Ankley, 53, died Friday, June 27, 2014. Tom was born August 13, 1960 to Donald and Patricia Ankley and grew up in North Branch, Michigan. Tom was a loyal and loving father, partner, brother, friend, neighbor, worker, and he was, using his own words, "a good dude." Tom was a veteran of both the United States Airforce and the United States Marine Corps. While he spent twenty-eight years at Pepsi Co., he also found true joy and purpose in helping anyone around him who needed it. He was an avid outdoorsman, and loved to go out of his way to make people laugh. He is survived by his daughters, Rachael and Jessica Ankley; his longtime partner, Teresa L. Irelan; his three sisters, Susan Hodgkinson, Karen Wilton, and Christina Swain; and his two brothers, David and Donald. He was preceded in death by his father, Donald F. Ankley, and his mother, Patricia Ankley. There will be a memorial Mass July 12th at the Immaculate Conception Roman Catholic Church in Lapeer at 11 a.m. with a luncheon to follow. If you wish to make a donation to the family, a memorial college fund is being set up for Rachael and Jessica Ankley. Arrangements are in the care of the Stone Funeral Home of Petoskey.
