Thomas Lee Wensing, "Tom," age 50, passed away on Wednesday, June 18, 2014, at his home of natural causes. Tom was born in Racine on April 1, 1964, son of Frederick L. and Rosemary T. (Nee: Mianecki) Wensing Jr. He was a lifelong resident of Racine and a graduate of J.I. Case High School "Class of 1983."

Tom was a member of St. Richard Catholic Church. He was an avid Brewer and Packer fan. During his youth, Tom was a newspaper carrier and later on worked various jobs which included Machine Shop, Security and Maintenance.
