I always enjoyed going to Tom for my haircut. He loved to talk fishing and now he´s fishing whenever and forever. RIP Tom the Barber

Like many others I knew Tom as my barber for the last 8 years until his retirement. From the first haircut I always felt comfortable and welcomed in his shop. And I always looked forward to my visits. Loved hearing his fishing stories. He had a wonderful quiet nature about him. Was so sad to hear about his passing all too soon. Sincere condolences to his entire family.

I would like to send my condolences to Tom's family. Tom was my barber and my son's for more years than I can count. I hated to see him retire, but we all do eventually. The last time I seen Tom he told me, now I will be able to go fishing anytime I want. I wish he would have had more opportunities to catch all those big ones. Tom was a good man! I still miss you as my barber! Rest in Peace and God Bless.

Tom was my barber for over 30 years. He was a quiet but nice man who was a great barber. I was sorry to see him retire but he has earned it for over 40 years in Onalaska. Rest In Peace Tom and condolences to his family.

Since moving to Onalaska almost 30 years ago, Tom was the only barber I had. He was a man of few words and had to work to stretch my cut to half an hour. I was sad when covid hastened Tom's retirement plans, but happy for all the fishing he would now be able to do. I just wish he could have done more of it. Thanks for everything, Tom. You are, and will continue to be, missed by many.
