Tom was born on November 5, 1953, to Phillip and Mary Jane Leigl of Mayville. He lived and worked in the Mayville and Brownsville area throughout his life.
Tom’s joy in life came from his passion for hobbies such as golfing, trips to the Northwoods, sitting by a campfire and walleye fishing, he even held the nickname Walleye King! Although he would probably tell you he did more fishing than catching. Tom was a funny guy, he told a lot of great jokes and kept his sense of humor to the very end.
His greatest joy however came from his family, he loved his family more than anything else in life. Tom spent 46 years married to his greatest love Debra, whom he married on June 11, 1977. Tom & Debra enjoyed traveling, concerts, walking and just being together. Tom would often say how lucky he was that Debra picked him to share her life with; their love was something so very special.
Those Tom leaves behind will miss him so greatly, they include his loving wife Debra, daughter Jessica (Ryan) Toellner and daughter Danica (Brian) Lause. Also his 3 grandchildren Charlotte, Willis & Jack. He is further survived by his siblings Patrick Leigl, Michael Leigl, Kathleen (David) Lynch, Patricia Leigl and also mother in law Jeanine Streblow and sister in law Doreen (Tom Schnaderbeck) Streblow.
Tom was preceded in death by his parents Phillip & Mary Jane Leigl and father in law Raymond Streblow.
The family would like to thank the nurses and caregivers from Promedica Hospice that helped care for Tom with such care and compassion.
