Obituary for Thomas N. "Tom" Pendergast

Thomas (Tom) Neil Pendergast of Muskego, WI passed away on September 30, 2023, at the age of 86 with his beloved wife Shirley beside him.

Thomas left behind his loving wife Shirley, daughters Vickie Marasco (nee Pendergast) and Christy Rodriguez (Mike Talarczyk), son Scott Rodriguez (the late Heather) and grandchildren Anthony, Michael and Sophie Marasco and Mark Rodriguez (Stephanee), and great granddaughter Lilliann Rose. Thomas was preceded in death by his parents William and Hazel Pendergast, son Ty and sister Carol.

Tom was born May 27, 1937 and raised in Milwaukee where he enjoyed playing the trumpet in his Bay View high school band. He then attended both University of Wisconsin-Madison and UWM graduating with a degree in business.

Tom proudly served several years in the military as a Captain in the United States Air Force. He was a very dedicated worker who carried a long-standing career with Allis Chalmers, followed by the start of his own machine parts business, as well as a successful career in real estate. He also worked side by side with Shirley implementing store merchandising into his 80's.

He loved working in his yard, taking care of their pets, and spending time with his family. Tom was a quiet, reserved man who expressed his loyalty and love in an unassuming way.

The family will be holding a private memorial gathering.
