Thomas John Klein, age 68, died peacefully on Thursday, April 28, 2022, after a short battle
with cancer. Tom was born in Evanston, IL on March 31, 1954, to the late Jack and Rita
Klein. He moved to Neenah, WI as a young boy and grew up with his younger brother Peter
enjoying the great outdoors. They spent many hours camping at High Cliff, swimming and
boating around Lake Winnebago as boys. He graduated from Neenah High School in 1972.
Tom faced many challenges throughout his life but seldom complained, and lived
independently for many years.
Tom had a great love for family, friends, and animals. He always enjoyed and looked
forward to gatherings with family and friends. He liked music and taking road trips with
his good friend Larry Foley.
Left behind to remember him is his brother, Peter (Julie) Klein; and their daughters: Jessica
(Matthew) Anderson and Laura (fiancé Josh Reinl) Klein; as well as great-nephews: Henry
and Jack Anderson. He is further survived by cousins, other extended family, and friends.
