Wierschem Thomas Obit Fldrs

Thomas Masao Wierschem, 39, went to be with Our Lord and savior on September 10, 2021.
Thomas was born on May 11, 1982, in Phoenix, Arizona. He graduated from Paradise Valley High School and received a full academic scholarship to ASU where he graduated with a Baccalaureate in Criminal Justice. He joined M.C.S.O. in March 2016 and had risen through the various ranks. Thomas became a Sergeant in April 2013 and Lieutenant in October 2015. He received numerous accommodations throughout his career. His last role with M.C.S.O. was that of an Executive Lieutenant, where he built effective working relationships with local courts, other law enforcement agencies, and all levels of office staff and command.
Thomas “finally found the love of a lifetime” with Deana and they married on October 31, 2016. He enjoyed traveling and spending as much time as he could on various beaches and truly enjoyed sharing his love of guns and bourbon with his family and friends. He was a devoted husband, father, son, brother, uncle, and friend.
He is survived by his wife, Deana Wierschem; son, Luis Lopez; daughter, Laurie Lopez; parents, Charles and Kazumi Wierschem; two sisters, Christina Reisinger (Jeffrey); Angela Ogden (Matthew); one brother, Daniel Wierschem and several nephews, niece, aunts, uncles, cousins and numerous friends.
He is preceded in death by grandparents, Masao and Kayono Nabeuchi and Ivan and Martha Wierschem.
Everyone who remembers him is asked to celebrate Tom’s life in their own way. So, raise a glass of your favorite bourbon in Tom’s memory, as this would be quite appropriate.
A Celebration of Life will be held at 2:00 p.m. on September 29, 2021 at Thompson Funeral Chapel, 926 S. Litchfield Rd, Goodyear, AZ 85338.

  1. Thomas was a cousin who loved life and always had a smile on his face. He will be missed by everyone who knew him. Soar with the wings of eagles!

  2. I only knew Thomas for a short time, but I can honestly say, Thomas was the type of man that you only needed a short amount of time, to know what kind of man he was. He radiated warmth, compassion and kindness. To be in his presence you just felt his love for life, as much as, his love for his wife.
    His passing leaves our hearts filled with sadness, but we know he has made heaven a warmer, brighter place.
    Rest In Peace my friend

  3. Thomas was a bright spot in an world that is often too dark. He loved life and lived it to the fullest. I know his light is shinning brightly in heaven. And although we all feel pain at his loss, I know the pain, in this case, is a measure of the love we had for the man.

    I hope that all of us can get past the pain we feel and remember the love we had for Thomas. If we can share that love with others, then the light Thomas brought into this world will continue to shine through us. Godspeed Thomas. You will be missed.

  4. I knew Thomas was my kind of friend when the weekend my husband and I met him (at Angela and Matt’s wedding) we got hotel security called on us for having our own after party in our hotel room. Thomas was fun-loving, kind, and a truly joyful person to be around. He will be truly missed by all who knew him.

    They say the price of love is grief, and myself and everyone I know who knew Thomas is grieving his loss tremendously. I send my sincerest condolences out to his love, Deana, and his family. I love you all, and I’m so sorry for your loss.

  5. I was fortunate to work with Thomas throughout his career. A true professional, yet even more, a kind, understanding and compassionate human being. Rest assured Thomas is with his loved ones.

    Prayers to family and friends,

    Allen Romer #1161, Lt.
    Maricopa County Sheriff’s Office

  6. I’ve known Tom over the years through our work. I remember clearly one day a discussion about him becoming a defense lawyer to serve protecting Officers. In many ways he had accomplish that in his current role. Tom leaves many lasting impacts on all whom crosses his path. All who have had an opportunity to know him would say he was smart, loved his family, and friends.

    Rest in peace, Tom.

  10. Tom came into our lives and left a footprint in our hearts and we are never the same.

    2 Corinthians 1:3-4 – “Blessed be the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, the Father of mercies and God of all comfort, who comforts us in all our affliction, so that we may be able to comfort those who are in any affliction, with the comfort with which we ourselves are comforted by God.”

  12. Today is by far going to be one of the hardest days ever.

    Thomas was the light at the end of a tunnel always shining bright. He was truly one person you could always count on, not just at work, but outside of work .

    Thomas, you’ll be truly missed. Our hearts are 💔 knowing that you passed at a young age of 39.

    You were the first partner I worked with, one that taught me signs of watch to for around Inmates so that I could always be safe. You were a great mentor to so many people. You made a HUGE impact in so many lives.
    Our prayers and condolences go out to all the Wierschem family. We can’t begin to imagine how tough this has been for all you.

    Thomas R.I.P 💙🖤
    We will miss you & take it from here!!

    Much love,
    Danny & Ree
