Thomas Robert Webster, long time resident of Wausaukee, and more recently of Crivitz, died peacefully on Saturday, May 25, 2013. Tom was born in Milwaukee, Wis., on January 8, 1949, to Robert and Ann (Denton) Webster.
He attended school in Milwaukee and participated in programs offered by Milwaukee County. On the death of his parents he moved to Wausaukee in 1980 to live with his sister, Ruth (Paul) Schroeder, and her family. He was hired at Wausaukee Enterprises where he worked happily with its terrific staff and fellow employees until last year. Tom was a person of routine, the most important was having a beer and pretzels at precisely 5:00 p.m. every evening. He participated in many Knights of Columbus sponsored Olympic events, treasuring his medals and loved the chance to fish at Camp Daniel and Kelly Lake. Tom moved into the first Rost-Huebner House in Crivitz, in December, 2006, where again he was blessed with a caring staff as was true at Bay Area Medical Center and NEWCare Convalescent Center.
Tom is survived by his sisters, their spouses, their children, grandchildren and cousins.
An "Afternoon to Remember Tom" is planned for Sunday, June 30, 2013, from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. at Wausaukee Enterprises, 836 Cedar St., Wausaukee, WI 54177, where memorials may also be made.
Tom was fortunate to have had many friends. His sisters, Jean (James) Wilson, Winnetka, Ill. and Ruth are grateful to all of the kind people in his life. Special thanks to Chris Proctor and Dr. Yasser Salem.
