Thomas was born in Richland Center March 22, 1954, to Kenneth Francis and Mary Jo (Kooiman) Wolff. He grew up with five siblings on their farm in Bear Valley, where he roamed the hills and caves on the back of his pony, Misty. He later graduated from Sun Prairie High School in 1972.
Thomas took great satisfaction and pride in his life’s career in the communications industry, beginning in the 1970s. His work allowed him to travel the United States for 15 years. He later spent 25 years with CenturyLink.
Thomas had an absolute passion for the outdoors and was an avid sportsman. He was an amazing husband, father, brother and friend, and he believed in enjoying each and every sunset.
