Thomas E. McKearn, 65, of Whitewater, WI, passed away unexpectedly on Saturday, February 8, 2020 just outside of Milton. Tom was born on September 29, 1954 in Beloit, WI to the late Richard and Anne Marie (FitzPatrick) McKearn. He graduated from Beloit Turner High School in 1972. On July 17, 1976, Tom married Connie Pepper at Our Lady of Assumption Catholic Church in Beloit. He worked for over 40 years doing body work for Mansfield Autobody. Tom was a member of St. Mary’s Catholic Church in Milton, the Village Squares dance club and was the former President of the Milton Youth Football League. He cherished his time with his family. Tom was a friend to everyone and loved by everyone. His joy was his wife, kids, grandkids, and his home. He loved working at his job and at his farm, The McKearn’s Shamrock Acres, with his son, Matt. He was always proud of what his family had accomplished. He will be greatly missed by all for his smile and his oh-so-funny sense of humor. His unexpected death will forever leave an emptiness that will never be filled. We will miss you Tom!
