Tom Goetter, born Sept. 3, 1948, died an unexpected yet peaceful death on June 18, 2014, at age 65, surrounded in love by his immediate family members.
Tom was very proud of his life accomplishments.
Tom was honored with a Bronze Star while serving in the U.S. Army during the Vietnam War from 1969-1972. Tom was also a successful business entrepreneur in downtown Waukesha and Milwaukee, having various retail businesses such as tropical fish stores and commercial real estate.
Husband to lifelong soul mate Jeanie Goetter, they were together for 50 years. He was the loving father and friend to Tami and spouse Aaron LeRoux, and “Papa” to three treasured grandchildren, Skylr, Roxiluna and Nalu LeRoux.
His passion for the outdoors, animals and nature was present in his beautiful home and yard, which he cared for with joy. He touched many lives with his huge generous spirit, kind heart and positive outlook in the most challenging of times.
We send you on your journey in freedom, love and light.
In honor of Tom’s life, a private family and friends gathering will be held at a later date.
