Thomas "Tom" Fredrick Selk

He also worked at Mendota Mental Health Institute, where he established many special relationships with both his coworkers and patients. On September 18, 2016 he married the love of his life, Jeannie Fielder.

Tom will be remembered for his love of the Milwaukee Brewers, Marquette Golden Eagles and Milwaukee Bucks, but mostly for the love of his three boys, Casey, Brayden and Jaice. Tom was raised with a large family, who were all by his side when he jumped into God's arms. Rest in peace son, father, brother and uncle. Love, Your Family.
