Thomas “Tom aka TS” Sanville

Aug 30, 1954 - Dec 17, 2023


Tom Sanville was born on August 30, 1954 and passed away on December 17, 2023. He was united in marriage with his high school sweetheart Lorie Herzog on October 20, 1984. He worked at Playdium Lanes and Lakeshore Lanes for many years. While at Lakeshore Lanes a mentor coached him in commercial refrigeration. That sparked the need for his own business. Tom was often seen around town keeping refrigerators running and beer cold. He also worked part time for the Town of Wilson for over 30 years and fully retired in April of 2022 due to declining health. Tom enjoyed nature whether that be hiking or camping. He was also an original member of the Sheboygan Sudzzers and a brewer for many years with his wife. He took up a new hobby in 2019 and in 2021 passed the HAM Amateur Extra License. The electronics and detail to wave lengths and sun spots fascinated him.
Tom is survived by his wife, Lorie and siblings, Ed Sanville of New Hope, MN, Sue Gates of Elkhart Lake, WI and Kathy (Bryan) Grefsheim of Tomah, WI. He is preceded in death by his parents, Leon and Jeanne Sanville.
A Celebration of Life will be held on Saturday, February 3, 2024 at Lakeshore Lanes, 2519 S. Business Dr., Sheboygan, from 1:00 p.m. until 3:00 p.m.
Online condolences may be expressed at

My condolances to Lorie. I enjoyed the camping trips to Rock Island With Tom and the many interesting conversations.

John Danner

Lorie. I am sorry to learn of your loss. I knew you both from the early Sudzzer years where you routinely demonstrated your skills without fanfare. Such talent on display, and we were all the beneficiaries! God bless you. Death Leaves a Heartache No One Can Heal; Love Leaves a Memory No One Can Steal

Dear Lorie I am so sorry for your loss. Tom was such a kind and quiet man. I enjoyed working with him at the S,.D.. Now live in Tenn near my son and grandchildren so will not be able to attend the celebration of life.
