Known as the Eight is Enough Kurker house, we all enjoyed many memories created in our loving home. A graduate of the University of Notre Dame, Tom religiously cheered for his Fighting Irish every Saturday in the fall. His passion for boating on the lake, reading mystery novels, Lebanese food, attending Mass, spending time with family and friends and of course lemonade were only a few of the comforts that made Tom feel happiness. Loved by so many in his life, we all are eternally grateful to have shared the precious time with this wonderful man, dad, husband, grandpa, and friend.
