Kavanaugh, Thomas Harold, age 93, died May 16, 2019.

Tom was born on a farm in Crary, ND on March 16, 1926 with his twin brother James. He graduated from Devils Lake Central High School ND in 1944 and then attended 2 years of college, after which he enlisted in the US Air Force in 1950. After an honorable discharge in 1954, he earned his degree in Mechanical Engineering from Texas A&M University in 1957. After retiring from Square D/Schneider Co, he was a substitute teacher, coached basketball, softball, and volley ball at St Agnes Elementary School, and did many years of volunteer work for his church. He was an avid Green Bay Packer fan and watched a lot of sports on TV.

Tom was involved with the Milwaukee Public School Committee of 100, and was active in promoting the building of Vincent High School. He loved singing and was a member of the St Agnes choir for 55 years. He especially loved Friday night get-togethers with his wife Audrey, children, grandchildren, and great grandchildren.
