Tom was born April 7, 1967, in Des Moines, Iowa. He attended St. Theresa Grade School, was a proud graduate of Dowling Catholic High School, and an Alumnus of Loras College. Tommy's sparkling blue eyes and infectious laugh opened our hearts and made him easy to love. His friends knew him as an avid video game and fantasy football player. But mostly he was known as the #1 fan of the New York Yankees and The Fighting Irish.
He was a loyal and faithful son, father, brother, husband and friend. He leaves behind his mother, Janet; daughter, Anna; Kathleen, to whom he was married 23 years; three loving sisters, Mary (Larry) Phillips, Janelle (Tom) Beebe, Peggy (Craig) Miller; and numerous nieces and nephews.
Tributes may be sent to Ernst Funeral Home, P.O. Box 986, Waukee, Iowa 50263.
