Obituary of Tom Seehase
Tom was, in simplest terms, a caring man. He loved the people in his life with his entire heart, and he was there to give them help whenever they needed. He was able to give the kind of hugs that would take your breath away, and afterwards he would shake your hand. When Tom was young, he rarely spoke, but as he grew up, conversation became one of his favorite pastimes. He would spend hours talking to his elderly neighbor just for the company, and would often follow people as they walked so that they could continue their conversation as they moved about.
Tom was incredibly talented in many regards, and he had a wide array of passions. He was an amazing cook, and was able to get his mother, who is not at all a fan of mushrooms, to fall in love with his soft mushrooms. Tom also enjoyed fishing in 18 mile creek, splitting firewood for bonfires, and researching his family’s Polish heritage. Playing pool, however, held a special place in his heart, because he would play with his father for hours, and because pool was how he met his beloved fiancé, Katti.Seehase, Tom P. Suddenly February 25, 2018 of North Tonawanda, NY (formerly of Lake View, NY). Beloved son of Jim and Barb (nee Bienko) Wagner; devoted brother of Krista (Andy) Lipczynski and Louis Wagner; cherished fiancé of Katti Irvin; loving step-father of Bella; dearest uncle of Zoey and Bailey Lipczynski; dear nephew of Mary Jane Bienko and late Joe and late Joan Bienko, fond grandson of James and Gloria Wagner; also survived by many aunts, uncles, and cousins.
