Thomas Edward Wooten, 65, of   Ironton, went to heaven and became an angel, July 10, 2018, after a long battle with many illnesses, at Meriter Hospital in Madison.

Thomas was born September 12, 1952 in Chicago, IL to the late Ralph and Dorothy Helen (Lyon) Wahl Wooten. 

Thomas is survived by two children, Thomas Edward Wooten Jr. of Phoenix, AZ and his daughter Susan Nichole Jacobson of Reedsburg.   His four grandchildren whom he absolutely adored; Andres Phillip Garcia of  Baraboo, WI   Celia May Jacobson, Calob Dean Edward Hetzel and Haily Kay Hetzel, all of Reedsburg, WI, his brother Robert Charles Wooten of MI, and his sister Paulette Lynn Wahl Colwell of Atlanta, GA.  He is also survived by his nieces; Rhonda Lynn Lesley, Renee’ LeAnn Reeves, Tiffany Lynn Cowell, and Jodi Moore, and nephews; Franklin Eugene Leslie Jr., Phillip Don Lesley, Joshua Ryan Lesley, Justin Paul Jennetten, Richard Douglas Cowell, and Logan Chandler Cowell.

Thomas enjoyed many things in his life, some of which revolved around attending the Advent Christian Church in LaValle with Pastor Richard Johnson.  He had made many new friends while moving back to Wisconsin.  He was a very crafty person.  He enjoyed making cross and beaded necklaces, and bracelets.  He also enjoyed making woodwork items such as his craft station.  He loved traveling and did so through many states.  He worked many different jobs that would include construction, home re-modeling, and Reedsburg Hardwoods.  What he loved most was family and his dog Jiffy.  He especially enjoyed spending time with his grandchildren.  We will all miss his many theories of how he says the world is going to end, and that there are several drones in the sky that follow him.  His jokes were always the best.  If he knew you were feeling down, he would say this one the most. “I can’t drink alcohol, because I’m allergic to it.” Then he says, “You want to know why?  It’s because I start breaking out in spots.  I first start out in California, then work my way to Texas, and ended up in Wisconsin.”

A memorial service will be held at a future date to be announced.
