Obituary

W. Scott Thom, 86, formerly of Kenosha, WI, late of Atlanta, GA passed away peacefully on March 7, 2019 at Sunrise of Buckhead Assisted Living in Atlanta, GA.

Born in Wausau, WI on June 28, 1932, he was the son of the late Walter Henry Thom and Helen Stone Thom. After graduating from Wausau High School in 1950, he attended Yale University in New Haven, CT, and graduated in 1954. During college, he met his wife, Jane E. O’Connell; they married on November 6, 1954 in Glen Cove, NY.

He enjoyed playing golf and tennis with family and friends as a member of the Kenosha Country Club, Kenosha Towne Club and The Meadows Country Club in Sarasota, Florida. He was a great spectator of college and professional sports, and had a witty sense of humor that was both entertaining and welcoming.
