Mr. Carlyle Thomas “Tom” Weichmann was born in Chicago on March 11, 1928. He attended Schurz High School. Upon graduation, he won a full scholarship to Yale University, the first ever to win such a prestigious award from our high school. He graduated at the age of 20 and went to work for Rand McNally for 38 years. Tom navigated his family through good times and hard times. He modeled the value of hard work, perseverance, and integrity, leaving behind a legacy for his children, grandchildren and great grandchildren. He was an inspiration to all who knew him. His kindness and generosity were boundless, as well as his energy and creativity in entertaining his many grandchildren. He had a strong and abiding faith in his Lord, Jesus Christ and we are thankful that he is now rejoicing in His presence. He was preceded in death by his daughter, Carol Bugh. He is survived by his loving and devoted wife, Lois; daughters, Kyle and Karen and sons, Kent and Craig.
