He married Gloria Henschel of Kimberly on November 9, 1957 at Holy Name Church in Kimberly, and recently celebrated sixty years of marriage.

    He and Gloria enjoyed camping, fishing, hunting, and spending time at their cottage at Lac Vieux Desert. He also did his own taxidermy - the house and cottage are both decorated with his masterpieces. He and Gloria also enjoyed traveling in their retirement and wintering in Florida. Tom always felt as though he and Gloria had the very best of times: a healthy and loving family, a good job, a loving wife, and a long, enjoyable retirement.

    Tom is survived by his wife: Gloria Vander Hyden of Combined Locks; six loving children: Vicki (Joe) Mader of Kimberly, Lisa (Larry) Janssen of Little Chute, Susan (Dan) Kilsdonk of Kimberly, Tom (Mary) Vander Hyden of Darboy, Tim (Amy) Vander Hyden of Combined Locks, and Melissa (Matt) Cunningham of Sherwood.
