Thomas H. Witte (Tom), age 87, of Prospect Heights and Molokai, Hawaii formerly of Glenview, passed away peacefully July 11, 2021. Loving father of Laura Sukowaty, Thomas, Frances O'Keefe, Michael, Christopher, David and Joseph; cherished grandfather of 23, great-grandfather of 2; dear brother of the late James, Nancy Stuercke, and the late Jerry.

Tom touched many lives as an energetic and lovable teacher for over 50 years. His passion was excitement for learning and he made every effort to encourage every young person he met or knew to further their education. His financial acumen was outstanding and he was an accomplished investor and advisor to those who sought his knowledge. Tom traveled the world and enjoyed seeing new cultures but most of all, meeting people who were then privileged to experience his never-ending charm and humor. He will be greatly missed but we take comfort in knowing he is at peace in a better place, and we know with certainty it is definitely more lively!

Visitation will be held Saturday, July 24 from 9:30 am until time of the service at 11 am at N.H. Scott & Hanekamp Funeral Home, 1240 Waukegan Road, Glenview. Entombment private at All Saints Cemetery. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be made to Oakton Educational Fund, 1600 E. Golf Rd., Des Plaines, IL 60016. Funeral information 847-998-1020.

Tom was one of the good guys. I wouldn't be where I am today without Intro to Electronics with Tom. May his memory be a blessing.
