RIP Tom Stephany

I have received word that Tom Stephany, former Parks Director for the City of Oshkosh, passed away peacefully this morning after a courageous battle with cancer. Tom faithfully served this community with love and passion since 1995 before retiring in 2009. His work will long live on for future generations to enjoy.

I understand funeral arrangements are set for 11 am Saturday morning at New Life Church on 9th Avenue. Fiss and Bills Funeral Home is assisting the family and online condolences may be left on their web site at by going here.

From those of us at Eye on Oshkosh, we extend our deepest sympathies to Tom, his family and friends, and all those in the employ of the City of Oshkosh - past or present - who worked with Tom during his tenure there. May you all find solace in each other, the Lord and your memories of times spent with Tom during this difficult time and in the days and weeks to come. And when any of us visits or even drives by one of our many parks in Oshkosh, I hope we can each say a silent thank you to Tom for helping beautify our community with his work and vision. Rest in peace, Tom. And thank you.

Tom was a member of the Fox Valley Brain Tumor Coalition support group. He was a great guy who will be missed.

Yes, he was a wonderful man and will be missed by so many - both for his friendship and many contributions to the community in which he lived. Thanks for sharing your thoughts, Darlene.
