Tonight, after eating a fish fry on a Friday night, at the hospital where he did my son's surgery; I was thinking about how Dr. Tilkens was so nice to my son years ago. He was doing my son's ingrown toenail surgery at the hospital because my son was so scared. He was so kind and caring. I noticed that his office has been empty, and I decided to look him up, to see where he is now. I was planning to send him a thank you note, after all these years. I appreciated so much what he had done for my son, and I wanted him to know how much that meant to me. He was like a saint. I am sad to come across his obituary. I am too late. He was a wonderful doctor and man, and I am sorry for your loss.

I met Tom many years ago and he gave me recipes to make walleye and i still make the Chorizo and rice krispies recipe. it is delicious. i enjoyed his fishing stories. My sincere sympathies to Tom's family and friends. I will toast him Friday evening as he wished. - Debbie VanPay

I played hockey with Tom in the old "Huff 'n' Puff" league at the DePere Ice Center in the '70s and early '80s. A fun, genuine guy, competitive as well but never got into a fight. I'm glad I got to know him in that context. Later, when I went into the medical field myself, we'd see each other occasionally and briefly talk hockey.

My sympathy to Tom's family and loved ones. Too bad there are not more people like him in this world.

So very sorry to read of Dr. Tilkens passing. He did more than a few surgeries for me. We always laughed a lot. My Mom and His Mom worked together many, many years ago probably before we were born. God Bless and RIP Dr. Tilkens
