On Saturday, January 8, 2022, Thomas was unexpectedly called to his heavenly home, with his loving parents by his side.
Thomas was born on April 15, 1997 to Chris and Carol (Quella) Sullivan, while stationed in Oxnard, CA. Shortly after his birth, their family relocated to Wisconsin where he lived the remainder of his life.
From early on, Thomas’ family knew he had a beautiful soul and a tender heart. He had an admirable determination for life. In true Thomas fashion he overcame numerous medical challenges and defied many odds.
Thomas’ one true love was music. His preferred playlist consists of 22 songs by various artists including Frank Sinatra and Nat King Cole. The ABC’s were his go to and by far his favorite. His family sang them to him every day and it instantly brought a smile to his face. At Sunday mass, he was sure to have the best seat in church, facing the choir of course. Thomas was always smiling and his smile would light up the room. His contagious smile will always be remembered.
Thomas is survived by his parents; five siblings Michal (Abbey), Jaclyn (fiancé Luke), Ashley (Drew) Zajkowski, Amber and Paige; a niece Everly and a faithful companion, Mo. He is further survived by his maternal grandparents, Eugene and Sally Quella; paternal grandparents, Richard and Elaine Sullivan; 16 aunts and uncles, 30 cousins, and 23 second-cousins. Thomas was preceded in death by a special aunt and godmother, Barbara Baumgart.
Visitation for Thomas will be held on Thursday, January 13, 2022, at ST. THOMAS MORE CATHOLIC CHURCH, 1810 North McDonald Street, from 4:00 pm until 8:00 pm. Visitation will resume on Friday, January 14, 2022, at CHURCH from 9:00 am until the time of Mass at 11:00 am. Online condolences may be expressed at www.wichmannfargo.com.

Thomas’ family would like to extend a special thank you to his team of home caregivers for their years of dedication, compassion and love. And an additional thank you to the nurses and doctors at St Elizabeth Hospital who cared for Thomas while in the ER and ICU.
