Thomas Greeley Izdepski, age 72, passed away on Friday, June 22, 2018, surrounded by his family. Tom was born on Aug. 24, 1945, in Ladysmith, the son of Stanley and Mary (Greeley) Izdepski. He married Linda (Wood) Izdepski on June 10, 1972 in Gillman.
He attended school at Marshall Center School in Sheldon through eighth grade and then attended high school in Tony. He graduated from Flambeau High School in 1963. He attended a technical college in Milwaukee and graduated with a 2-year draftsman degree. After serving in the Army, he went to work for the Wisconsin Department of Transportation inspecting roads and bridges in the Milwaukee area.
He served in the Army as a Private First Class from 1965 through 1967, with some time stationed in Germany. He was proud that, before leaving the Army, he was asked to continue on into officer candidate school. He farmed and milked dairy cows at Maplewood Farm, founded by his grandfather, Stanislaus Izdepski. Several Izdepski family reunions were held at Maplewood Farm over the years with family coming from all over the United States.
Tom enjoyed spending time with family and friends. After retiring from farming, Tom also enjoyed coffee and playing dice at the Sheldon Community Center in the morning. He liked playing sheeps-head with his friends. He gave a lot of his time helping anyone that needed help. He was a member of Knights of Columbus and York-Kolar American Legion Post 0136.
