Tom was born July 23, 1948, in Bismarck, the son of Elmer and Tillie (Holzworth) Wentz. He was raised in Napoleon and graduated in 1968 from Napoleon High School. Tom served in the U.S. Army from May 1969 to May 1971 in Vietnam. A son, Toby, was born on April 26, 1973. He married Kat Ktytor on June 5, 1993.

He worked at N.D. Concrete in Menoken for 28 years and then worked at Fiesta Villa for 10 years, before retiring in July 2010.

Tom loved the backyard and had plans for this summer. His family will miss his smile and his witty sense of humor. He cherished his walks with his grand-puppy, Chuey. They spent many hours together and Chuey loved grandpa.

Tom is survived by his wife, Kat; son, Toby (Missy) Jenner and Chuey; father-in-law and mother-in-law, John and Olga Ktytor; sister, Betty (Roger) Becker; brother-in-law, Ed Vetter; nephews, Bobby Vetter, Tom (Bethany) Hill, Brandon (Vicky) Vetter, Mike Becker and Lukas (Mindy) Becker; and his brothers-in-law and sisters-in-law, Lori Ktytor, Ken (Corrine) Ktytor, Tim (Arla) Ktytor and Karen (Greg) Leno.

He was preceded in death by his parents; sister, Shirley; brother-in-law, Larry Ktytor; nephew, Brian Becker; and many aunts and uncles.

Tom will be missed, especially by his cousins, Bob and Cindy Holzworth.

Gone but not forgotten.
