Thomas J. Marlega, age 79 of Rhinelander, passed away Tuesday, Aug. 28, 2018, at Ascension St. Mary's Hospital. He was born in Milwaukee on July 18, 1939, to Leon and Martha (Cizan) Marlega.

In 1960, he married Kathleen (nee Stadler) and raised four daughters: Sara (John Savas), Claudia Rein (Kenneth), Andrea, and Laura (Anthony Skelly). He graduated with an Electrical Engineering degree from the Milwaukee School of Engineering in 1963, and worked at Magnatek (formerly Louis Allis) until his retirement.

Tom is survived by his wife and daughters; grandson Kyle Rein (Nicole Grumley); granddaughter Angela McDonnell (Kevin); great- grandson Isaac Rein; and two brothers, Joseph (Barbara) and Carl (Josephine) Marlega. He was preceded in death by his parents, and three siblings: Richard and Edward Marlega, and Jean (Robert) Jungbluth.

The family extends a special thank you to the staff in the memory unit at Milestone for their love, care and compassion provided over the last 18 months. Another thank you goes to Hospice for their added support and assistance.
