Thomas B. “Tom” McGrath, age 66, of Milwaukee, WI, formerly of Geneva, IL, passed away Thursday, February 17, 2022 at St. Mary’s Hospital in Milwaukee, with his loving wife by his side.

He was born March 14, 1955, in Chicago, the son of John Chester “Chet” and Katherine (Breen) McGrath.

Tom McGrath was a gregarious, loud dressing, humorous, kind, warm-hearted, encouraging, proud Irish-American. Rarely did one walk away from a conversation with Tommy without a smile on their face. He was a family man in every sense of the word, and if you were lucky enough to become his friend, you became part of his family.

He is survived by his devoted wife of 32 years Donna (Lang) McGrath, daughter Meaghan (Tim) Groome, son Sean McGrath, and father John Chester “Chet” McGrath.  He is brother to Jane Ann McGrath (deceased), Johnny (Angie) McGrath, Michael (deceased), Patrick (Jane) McGrath, Marie (Frank) Cimaglia, and Jim (Elizabeth) McGrath.  Brother-in-law to Veronica (John) Irish, Harold (Fay) Lang, Patricia (Wayne) Pfennig, Regina Wade, and Christopher (Kirsten) Lang.  He was the fun-loving Uncle Tommy to Michael, Chase, Jeff, Matthew, Rachel, Kirsten, Cully, John, Katie, Jillian, Molly (deceased), Kevin, Joe, Patrick, Jimmy, Kevin, Andrew, Madeline, Mark, Jay, Spencer, Julia, Kylie, and Mackenzie. No family party will ever be the same.

Tom was preceded in death by his late mother Katherine (Breen).
