Obituary of Thomas Drees
We are saddened that our brother Tom Drees passed away on September 22, 2022. He was definitely his own man and he will be greatly missed by his friends and family. Unfortunately this past year, his health prevented him from being able to enjoy the wind in his sails, fishing the walleye spawn, or enjoying himself with friends and family before being called home. He was born and raised in Wichita, Kansas. He spent the majority of his career in quality assurance at Learjet. He was also involved with insurance sales. He loved to fish, hunt, sail, music (especially vinyl albums) and gardening. He had a passion for finding a good deal on sporting equipment and different knickknacks. There was no estate or garage sale that was safe. And he didn't mind having two or three sets of the same thing. He is preceded in death by his parents, William and Mary Drees, who we miss very dearly. He is survived by siblings Bill (Betty) Drees of Overland Park, KS, Jean Snyder of Santa Barbara, CA , Kevin (Marsha) Drees of Stillwater, OK, Chris (Tom) Sanders of Hutchinson, KS, Nancy (Scott) Nixon of Frisco, TX, and Rick (Marci) Drees of Wichita, KS; along with numerous nephews and nieces. A rosary and memorial service will be held in the chapel at DeVorss, Flanagan-Hunt Mortuary, 201 S. Hydraulic, Wichita, KS 67211, on October 29, 2022 at 2:00 p.m. In lieu of flowers, the family asks you donate to Midwest Transplant Network online at https://mwtn.org/make-a-monetary-donation/ then click the Donate button, or by mailing a check to Midwest Transplant Network, 1900 W. 47th Place, Suite 400, Westwood, KS 66205; or to another organ transplant organization of your choice.
