In memory of Thomas J. Kowalski

November 6, 1942 – June 29, 2013

Thomas Kowalski fought up until the end when he peacefully was given his wings on Saturday, June 29, 2013. His family, who stood by his side from from Day One, know that in his honor he would respectfully only accept donations to help fight this disease and someday put an end to suffering not only for the patients but their families as well.

Thomas was born in Detroit, Michigan, where he willingly volunteered to join the Marines and serve in the Vietnam War. Thomas returned back to Detroit where he later met his wife of 45 years, Duggan. Together they have two children, Sean and Heather, who will continue to share his stories and take comfort in knowing his spirit lives on through them. A devoted husband, a remarkable father, and a honest man, Thomas Kowalski’s life touched everyone.
