    De Groot, Thomas Roger 'Tommy De'

    Thomas Roger Groot, age 52, of Little Chute passed away peacefully, Friday, March 5, 2004, at Colony Oaks Care Center with his family by his side. Tom was born July 26, 1951 to the late Florian “Chub” and Pearl (Lamers) De Groot. He lived in Little Chute most of his young adult life and loved riding his bike all over town, visiting with everyone he met. He will also be remembered playing his guitar and singing his favorite Elvis songs. He graduated from Robert Plamann School in 1972. In his later years he joined a group of other special needs boys in an Appleton home under the loving and compassionate care of Michael Loppnow, who would become one of Tom’s truest and best friends and a trusted part of his whole family. Tom was employed at Valley Packaging where he also had many friends. Tom was special to everyone who knew him. He had genuine love for each and every person he ever met. We have all learned countless things from Tom - most importantly tolerance, patience, acceptance and how the love of family can carry you through whatever adversity you may encounter.

    Tom is survived by a sister, Teri (Mike) Rooyakkers, Combined Locks; 2 brothers: Ted De Groot, Little Chute and Tim (Stacey) De Groot, Combined Locks. Tom was also a very special uncle to Sadie (Rooyakkers) Greg Anderson, Beth (Rooyakkers) Cory Hurst, Kayla, Abigail, Jack and Julie De Groot. Tom was a great uncle to Natalie Anderson.

    He was preceded in death by his parents; grandparents: Theodore and Minnie Lamers and Henry and Agnes De Groot and by a nephew Ben Rooyakkers.

    Tom’s family would like to extend their love and gratitude to Tom’s friend and caregiver, Mike Loppnow for his loyal care and companionship over the past 10 years and to his staff for always being there to help. Tom was blessed to not only have them as his extended family also as true friends. A special thank you also to the staff at Colony Oaks Care Center for the care and understanding they gave to Tom and his family.

    Funeral services will be held at 5:00 p.m. Tuesday, March 9, 2004, at St. Paul Catholic Church, Combined Locks with Rev. Msgr. James Vanden Hogen officiating. Interment will be in St. John Cemetery, Little Chute. Friends may call at the church from 2:00 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. Tuesday. A memorial has been established.
