Tom was born November 2, 1943 in Milwaukee, WI to the late Edward and Dorothy (Peters) Densch. He grew up in Rudolph, WI attending St. Phillip's Grade School and graduated from Assumption High School in Wisconsin Rapids.

After high school, Tom married Elizabeth "Libby" (Sanford) Densch on October 13, 1963 and celebrated 54 years of marriage together. They have three daughters Barbara (Thomas) Miebach of Malta, NY, Deborah (David) King of San Diego, CA and Roberta (Peter) Lukasiewicz of Glenmore, NY and three grandchildren Olivia Lukasiewicz, Trevor King, and Holly King. Tom is also survived by his sister, Mary Lou (Mark) Sanford of Mosinee, WI, and several brothers in-law, sisters in-law, nieces and nephews. He was proceeded in death by his parent and two brothers James and Robert Densch.

Tom worked for 37 years at the former Georgia Pacific paper mill in Port Edwards. In addition to spending time with family, Tom enjoyed hunting, playing cards and working in "Grandpa's Shop" creating things from wood. Many people have benefited from his handiwork or enjoyed his humorous conversation starters. Tom always had a silly nickname ready for small kids and convinced them that they didn't know their colors correctly.

The family would also like to express their gratitude to the personnel at Aspirus Hospital and Aspirus Comfort Care and Hospice Services for their dedication and support.
