Thomas G. Retzer
Age 84. At peace September 17, 2020.

Beloved husband to Rosemary for 59 years. Son of the late Reinhart & Althea, brother to Lori. Caring father of Dawn (Jon), Blake and Lew (Judy). Proud grandfather of Lauren, Haley, Cayden, Kylee and Sam. Great-grandfather to James. Uncle to Kathy, Alan, Karen, Cliff and Carol.

He gave his life to many as a veteran, therapist and devoted family man. In his words, “Be good, help others as much and as often as you can. Live a life with no regrets.”

Tom was a man who loved fishing, flying and building RC planes, animals of all sorts, baking his famous recipes, playing cards, cracking jokes and much more. He believed and stood by important traditions that are instilled in his family. He loved his yearly Up North trip to Hayward, Wisconsin where memories were made and will be continued in his name.

He impacted many, loved family, friends and strangers and brought joy to everyone he touched. He will be greatly missed and cherished and we will all be finding the footprints he placed in our lives everywhere we turn.

In memory of Tom, and to honor his wishes, please consider donating to the recreation department of Lad Lake, Inc. in lieu of flowers. He devoted most of his life to helping young boys at this residential treatment center and wished he could help more. Donations can be mailed to: Lad Lake Inc., P.O. Box 158, Dousman, WI 53118.

A private celebration of life will be held in the near future.

PLEASE NOTE: While this website offers links to "planting a tree" or "ordering flowers" this is not the wish of the family. Please consider a memorial to Lad Lake Inc. in honoring Tom.
