Obituary for Thomas Ernest Hirsch

Thomas Ernest Hirsch, an exuberant character of a man, went home to the Lord on August 24, 2018, following surgical complications.
Born October 15, 1948 in Port Huron, MI to Dorothy Hirsch and the late Milo Hirsch. Tom had enormous respect and love for his parents and remained close with them throughout his life. Having three siblings, Victoria (Greg) Ochoa, Valerie (Richard) Smith and Daniel (Dawn) Hirsch, Tom was not just a brother, but a “Big Brother.” Something that meant a great deal to him.
Tom was proud to have served his country as an aircraft mechanic in the U.S. Airforce during the Vietnam war. And even prouder to have returned home to marry “my girl,” love of his life, Lenore. They spent their entire married life in Ferndale, MI until his passing 45 years later. Their marriage, above all other things, was filled with love, laughter and an honest understanding of each other.
He worked diligently as a claims agent at Chrysler for 30 years. But Tom’s true passion was to work with his hands, working on cars and building things for his family. He also enjoyed spending time up north in Mesick, MI, fishing and camping; and watching movies and football. A devout U of M fan, he never felt better dressed than decked out in Maize and Blue.
Tom was his best self, happy and content, when surrounded by his wife and kids Nichole (Michael) Young, Katie (Jeremy) Stettler and their five grandkids Matthew, Michael Jr, Audrey, Lilian (Young) and Elenore (Stettler).
Although Tom was faced with many physical struggles, he was a true man of faith and optimistic to the core. He trusted God and always believed things would work out ok.
Tom’s family was not ready for him to go, but his laughter and larger than life attitude will stay with them always.
Tom will be interred at the Great Lakes National Cemetery at a future date.
