Obituary for Thomas L. Petska, Jr.

Thomas L. “Tom” Petska, age 56, of Hebron, passed away Wednesday, November 7, 2018 at JourneyCare in Woodstock.
Tom was born November 11, 1961 in Waukegan and raised in Spring Grove. He graduated from Richmond Burton High School in 1979. Tom worked at Thread and Gauge in Spring Grove from 1980-1994. In January 1994 Tom left his longtime employer to join Steloc Fastener Co. in Wheeling. Tom remained employed there until this last year. Tom started deer hunting in 1989 at Fort McCoy Army Base in Wisconsin and continued this hobby well into his 50’s. One of Tom’s greatest passions in life was spending time with his grandchildren, he was always happy to make the drive from Palatine to Hebron. He was a very loving dad, and a doting grandpa. Tom referred to himself as a “Pickup man”. He loved his truck and enjoyed driving in it anywhere, anytime.
Tom is lovingly remembered by his son Tom and wife, Ceej of Hebron; grandchildren Haylee, Landon, Jayden, and Kesslee; his father, Thomas L. (Darlene) Petska Sr.; Godparents, Uncle Bob Miller and Aunt Sandy Casey; a brother, Mike Petska; a sister, Cheryl (Frank) Petska; nephews, Rafeal and Jason; a niece, Michelle; great nieces, Remi and Sophia; and great nephew, Hunter.
