It is with heavy hearts that we announce that our friend and colleague, Tom Masters, passed from this life on Monday, May 15, 2023, following a battle with cancer. He was the husband of Lori Masters and devoted father of Rachel and Hannah.
He was an avid bird hunter, fisherman, Detroit Lions fan, and enjoyed reading books about American history. He graduated from Lumen Christi High School, class of 1972, and earned a bachelor’s degree in finance and investment analysis from Eastern Michigan University.
Tom began his career in finance in 1989, and he joined Willis & Machnik in 2008.
We celebrated his retirement just a few months ago, and we’re grateful that we had the opportunity to tell him how much he meant to us and how much we’ve learned from him. We’ll never forget the fireside chats and strong bond of friendship we developed over the years.
The Mass of Christian Burial will be held on Friday, May 19, 2023, at 10:30 a.m. at Queen of the Miraculous Medal Catholic Church. A private inurnment will be held at St. John Catholic Cemetery.
The family will receive friends at the Desnoyer Funeral Home on Thursday, May 18 from 4:00 to 7:00 p.m. with a Rosary Service at 6:30 p.m.
Instead of sending flowers, contributions to Jackson Area Catholic Schools or Catholic Charities would be appreciated.
Please keep the Masters family in your thoughts and prayers during this difficult time.
