Thomas L. Sullivan Jr., 72, of Eagle, was born to eternal life Nov. 16, 2007, after a valiant 11-year fight against cancer.

He is the beloved husband of Elaine (nee Bauer) for 51 years; loving father of Sandra Lookatch, Thomas III (Cheryl) Sullivan and Eileen (Alan) Kohls; adored grandfather, confidant and best friend of Sara, William, Samantha and Alexander Lookatch, Thomas IV, Daniel and Caitlin Sullivan, Erich "Max" and Sally Kohls.

He is preceded in death by the late Charlotte (Norman) Gauthier and Michael (Allison) Sullivan.

Tom was a retiree of Nordberg Mfg. Co. He loved, enjoyed and took pride in all his grandchildren. He was always very supportive in all their ventures, sports and daily lives. He lived every day to the fullest and was an avid Packers fan. He also enjoyed his little gambling "junkets" to the casinos with his wife and longtime friend, Ron.

A memorial service will be held at 11 a.m., with visitation from 10 a.m. until the time of the service, on Wednesday, Nov. 21, 2007, at St. Theresa Catholic Church, 136 W. Waukesha Road, Eagle.

In lieu of flowers, memorials to the American Cancer Society for Research would be appreciated.
