August 29, 1949—January 8, 2019
FRANKSVILLE – Thomas A. Marinac, 69, passed away at Froedtert Hospital on Tuesday, January 8, 2019 after short but aggressive battle with cancer.
A lifelong resident of Racine, he was born on August 29, 1949, the son of the late Carl and Joy (nee: Lampman) Marinac. On July 29, 1983, he married Karen A. Jung.
Tom retired from Kranz, Inc after many years of service. He was an avid fisherman and music enthusiast. He played trumpet for many years with the Kilties. He also enjoyed cheering on Wisconsin sports; especially the Brewers, Bucks and Packers and taking his best canine buddy, Dobbie with him on morning errands. However, Tom was happiest in the company of his family; especially when babysitting his granddaughters with the other grandpa and great friend, Jim Kaufman.
In addition to his loving wife, Karen, Tom is survived by his sons, Matt Marinac of Franksville, Kyle (Sammi) Marinac of Wauwatosa; his granddaughters, Lilie and Piper; his sisters, Patricia (Sterling Strathe) Marinac, Nancy (Robert) Crossett, Laura (Charles) Thielen; his sister-in-law and brothers-in-law, Sandy (Mark) Geisler, Melvin Jung, Ted (Pam) Jung; as well as many dear nieces and nephews.
