Life Story for Thomas John "Tom" Dooley
My dad was a great man, he was a very nice and helpful person, worked very hard to take care of his family. Most of the time he worked two jobs. Through his life he did a lot of different interesting things/ He was a auxiliary police officer for Greenfield police department in Milwaukee, he was a firefighter, he worked in maintenance for the Mosinee central airport for a couple years, he also worked at SNE in maintenance and a computer Tech for 20 + years and he worked at Lietz's Convenience store.
As a hobby he did storm chasing and was big into ham radio and spoke with people all over the world. He had a lot of special licenses for operating ham radio's. "He was a jack of all trades". I would never be the man I am today without him. He taught me everything and guided me. I love my dad so much and he will definitely be missed.
