Tom grew up in Omaha, Nebraska where his love for Cornhusker football began. With a house full of Go Big Red memorabilia you always knew where to find him on game days. Tom was a partner of LTD2 Engineering in Kansas City where he worked with his sons until retirement.

It brought Tom joy spending time watching his grandchildren in sports activities and complete major accomplishments. He was a humble and proud father/grandfather.

He is survived by his children: Anthony, Michael, Thomas (Grace), Joseph (Leah), Karen (Jeff). Grandchildren: Romano, Savannah, Alyssa, Olivia, Kari, Joey, Jared, Drew. Great-grandchildren: Ellie and Olivia; and his partner, Gloria Berry.

My memories of Tom Sesto include many gamewatches of Nebraska /Iowa State games, Tom and Dee inviting us to be their guests for an ISU/Nebraska game in Lincoln and then them attending another one in Ames as our guests. Tom and his company conducted the original survey we had done on our current home at Weatherby Lake and was a cherished past client and friend.

Tom hired me at LTD2 Engineering in 1977 and taught me how to be a Land Surveyor and later how to run a business. He was "old school" and a tough guy with an ornery side, but in a good way. Sometimes he was difficult to please and because of it, made you better. Tom started out as my boss, then my mentor, later my business partner, and my friend. Sometimes more of a father than my own and occasionally referred to me as his 6th son. He was always a loyal friend and positive role model I could count on for advise. So many good memories of Tom and the entire Sesto family come to mind. I owe him more than I could ever explain and will always fondly remember him.

I met Tom either the day I was born or shortly thereafter. He liked to remind me he changed my diapers. Tom and family were a big part of our lives and a very close friend of my Dad's. The Sesto's and Dorner's shared many good times with the Koenig's and all the gang from Omaha and TD2. So many great memories. You are loved and greatly missed. Rest in peace. Patty

I began working for Thompson and Dorner in 1968. I was Toms original Rodman on the first survey crew. That crew was Tom as Party Chief, Jim Warner as
Instrument Man and me Mike Broyles as the Rodman.
I was drafted into the Army in February 1969 and returned to work for Thompson and Dorner in 1971.
At one time I was sent to the Kansas City office to help out Tom and my late brother Rich Broyles staking our streets in a large subdivision.
Tom was a great man and a good teacher and helped me progress in my knowledge of land surveying and I ultimately became a registered land surveyor myself.
My sympathy to all the family
