Thomas Anthony Wise born September 14, 1990 entered into his Savior’s rest on September 11, 2015.
He is survived by his fiancé Holly Haggerty and her daughter Lily; his mother and stepfather Nancy and George Marlow, his father Don Wise, his brother Michael (Raquel), sister Elizabeth Aprile (Sam), brother Christopher, nieces Brooklyn and Presley, nephew Logan and his grandmother Beverly Marlow.
Tommy was a resident of Manteca graduating from East Union High School in 2008. He would work many jobs until he found his true calling as an entrepreneur; owning and operating his own moving company. He and his family attended Calvary Community Church where he would meet the love of his life Holly; together Holly and Tommy were inseparable. He loved his family unconditionally but most of all he loved Holly and Lily who he thought of as his own daughter. He was known for his huge heart and wonderful bear hugs. He was happiest outdoors or on an evening drive to see the most beautiful sunset. He was a loyal friend who respected and wholeheartedly loved his friends. His lively spirit, contagious laugh, and his bright smile drew people to adore him. Tommy was the epitome of a “gentle giant”, his heart was always overflowing with kindness; whether he paid your toll, late night rides, talking you through hard-times, or paying it forward to a stranger in a fast food drive up window. Tommy truly impacted many lives as we will never know all the selfless acts he performed just to brighten someone else’s day. To continue Tommy’s selfless spirit we are asking friends, family and our community to join with us as we all strive together to brighten someone else’s day.
