Thomas P. Weekly
October 6, 1952- September 26,2023
Tom Weekly was born on October 6, 1952, in Omaha, Nebraska. He was the second of five boys of the late Jack and Bette Weekly. Tom grew up in Omaha, attending St. Pius Elementary School, Creighton Prep High School, and the University of Nebraska at Omaha. Tom was a natural salesman, launching his career at a young age, spending 17 years at Sharp Electronics as a Regional Sales Manager. After leaving Sharp, Tom was asked to help start up a Water Company named Innowave (Now Waterlogic, USA) and was President and Chief Executive Officer. He developed the company from the ground up and was successful in whatever area he pursued.
Tom met his future wife, Trish, while working at Sharp and they married on November 15, 1996. Tom was devoted to Trish, and the 4 children they raised, often having a hard time saying no to whatever they desired. When Tom wasn’t working or with his family, you could find him on the golf course, watching Dodger’s baseball or at his “Happy Place,” Dead Lake, in Minnesota. He lived for those fishing trips with family and his friends for 40 years and was lucky to have just gone earlier this month.
Tom was one of the smartest people you could meet with a quick wit and sharp sense of humor. He gave quite the look if you disappointed him, but never raised his voice, always being the protector of his family. He was generous to all and would give you the shirt off his back if you asked.
Tom faced many health challenges over the last seven years, but he met each one with grace and a strength that was unmatched in order to see his children grow up. The hill grew taller, but he never wavered through it all. He was loved by many and will leave an indelible mark on the world and a hole in our hearts.
Tom was preceded in death by his parents, Jack and Bette Weekly; brothers: Bill, Mike, and Danny. He is survived by his wife, Trish; children: Ashley Wessel (Charlie), Ryan Skahan (Kady), Tomas Weekly (Autumn) and Cian Weekly; grandchildren: Chayan, Finn, Mairead, and Skylar; brother, Mat (Sheryl); sisters-in-law, Pam and Sue. He adored his nieces and nephews as the role of “Favorite Uncle” and is survived by many lifelong friends.
