Obituary for Thomas J. Brickner

Thomas J. Brickner, affectionately known as Elvis, 81, of Lyons, passed away Sunday, January 12, 2020 at Aurora Medical Center in Burlington.

Born at home in Lake Geneva, Wisconsin on December 9, 1938, he was the son of Felix “Pep” and Mary (nee Jansky) Brickner. He attended St. Mary Catholic School and served in the United States Navy. On May 20, 1961 at St. Mary Catholic Church, he was united in marriage to Judith A. Hegemann. Following marriage, they lived in Lyons and he continued to be a life-long resident of this area.

Tom worked as a machinist for Eaton/Dynamatic. He was a member of St. Joseph’s Catholic Church in Lyons and the Lyons Lions Club. He loved his 1968 Chevy II Nova, along with hunting, fishing and spending time at his island cabin in Rice Lake. Known for his wit, Tom always had a joke to tell.

Tom is survived by his wife, Judith; children, Bob (Tammy) Brickner, Cheri (Craig) Bauer, Dan (Renee) Brickner, Tammy (Dave) Christensen and Valerie (Derick) Healey; grandchildren, Cody Bauer, Nicole (Bryon) Thomas, Brian (Amy) Brickner, Kalli (Matt) Arnold, Christopher (Estrella Palomino) Welch and Paige Healey; great-grandchildren, Colton, Kash, Hunter, Liam, Landyn and Luna; sister, Kathy (Dave) Rex; and sister and brother-in-laws, Carol (Jim) Martin, Ron (Linda) Hegemann, Dick (Judy) Hegemann, Jim (Julie) Hegemann, Terry (Dan “Soots”) Willms and Mary Kay (Chuck) Kastenson. Tom was preceded in death by his parents; in-laws, Ralph and Fran Hegemann; brother-in-law, Larry Hegemann and sister-in-law, Kathy Hegemann.

The family would like to thank Dr. Paul Webber, the nurses and staff at Golden Years Rehabilitation Center for their care and concern during this time and Cheri, Dan and the rest of Tom’s children for the care they gave their dad.

Services for Tom will be held Monday, January 20, 2020 at 7PM at Schuette-Daniels Funeral Home. Relatives and friends may visit with the family from 4PM until the time of service at 7PM.
