Thomas M. Lacina, age 74, of Cadott, passed away on Thursday, June 18, 2020, peacefully at his cabin in Glen Flora, Wisconsin. 

He was born on October 20, 1945, in Chippewa Falls to John and Magdalena “Dorothy” (Imbery) Lacina.  He was formerly married to Carol Dachel on July 22, 1967.  Thomas earned an associate’s degree from Chippewa Valley Technical College and worked at Presto and then later at Pope and Talbot as a machine operator.  He enjoyed hunting, fishing, playing cards at the local bar, gardening, picking berries, making maple syrup up at his cabin, and watching the Green Bay Packers.  In his younger years, he also enjoyed riding motorcycles and fixing up model A cars.  Thomas enjoyed spending time with his family and grandchildren, especially Gavin, who he spent a lot time with recently hunting and fishing. 

He is survived by his ex-wife Carol Dachel of Chippewa Falls; daughters LeAnne (William) Huber of Cadott and Lynda Lacina (Michael Fischer) of Chippewa Falls; grandchildren Jacob Huber, Laykin (Clayton) Rajek, and Gavin Huber; brother John “Jack” Lacina of Cadott who passed away a day later on Friday, June 19, 2020; brother-in-law Richard Polanski.

He was preceded in death by his parents, John and Dorothy, daughter, Laurel “Laurie” Lacina, his sister, Sharon Polanski, his sister-in-law Jan Lacina.

The family would like to thank the wonderful staff at Prevea Cancer Center and Dr. Neil Christenson, where Thomas received his treatments.  He especially enjoyed flirting with the girls and bringing them special treats.
