It is with great sorrow that the family of Thomas F. LaZear announce his passing following surgery early Sunday morning, June 11, 2017 at the age of 69. Tom and his big love, big hugs and big laugh will be greatly missed by everyone, especially his children, Tommy, Lou and Kate. His grandchildren, Hayden, Easton and Adrianna will miss “Papa” playing silly games and being at every game, every time and his big hugs and “raspberries”! Tom’s siblings, Stephanie Wilson and Mike LaZear will always miss and love their baby brother, Tommy. Tom also will be missed by his nephews, Little Mike, Steve and Danny and his only niece, Cherie whom he gave his last big smile to. Tom served his country in Vietnam and remains a proud soldier. For the last two decades Tom has devoted his life to improving his golf game and more importantly helping others in their recovery. Words cannot express the depth of his love for family and friends.
Service at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery, Monday, June 19, 2017, 10:30 a.m.
