Tom was born May 17, 1946 in Stevens Point , the son of Joseph and Eleanor (Feltz) Turzinski. He graduated from P.J. Jacobs High School in 1964. He married Valerie Creapeau in Stevens Point, the couple later divorced. He served in the National Guard before he began working at the Plover Paper Mill. He worked at the paper mill until 1981, had other various jobs and then began working at the Plover Kwik Trip until his retirement. Tom opened his home to his family, friends, neighbors, and his church family. He loved to grill out and fed whomever was over visiting. He was active in his faith, and loved family gatherings where he especially enjoyed time spent with his great nieces and nephews. His smile and endless stream of jokes brought happiness to many. Tom was known to carry his mug of coffee wherever he went.
