Obituary of Thomas Misiak

Thom Misiak, 75, passed away December 23, 2021 in St. Anthony†™s Hospital in Lakewood, CO. The son of Roman and Rose Misiak, he attended St. Francis de Sales High School in Toledo, Ohio, and graduated from the Columbus College of Art and Design. He married Sue Cieslukowski and the two began their life together in Columbus, Ohio, where their daughter Stephanie was born. Thom†™s great loves were Sue, Stephanie, art, jazz, and the Ohio State Buckeye football and basketball teams. He worked for many years in Columbus as an art director and later as a teacher. Thom and Sue moved to Colorado to be closer to their daughter and her family. He reveled in being a grandfather, taking the kids camping, working on art projects, and making them feel special. He and Stephanie bonded even more over their mutual love of jazz. Thom studied hard and became a docent at the Denver Art Museum, where he shared his love of art with many visitors, family and friends. Thom was an exceptionally kind man and was always willing to take the wheel on vacations, day trips, and wherever that high road to adventure led. His sense of humor and devotion to Sue are sorely missed. In August 2021, Thom and Sue celebrated their 51st wedding anniversary with a lovely party attended by friends and family from around the country. It was obvious to all how much they loved each other. A highlight of the evening was Thom†™s expressions of love for Sue and his invitation to her to dance. Thom will forever be remembered as a wonderful brother, husband, father, grandfather, uncle and friend. He is survived by Sue, Stephanie, grandchildren Alex Kacsh, Tony Kacsh (Billy Martinez), Jorden Misiak-Kacsh and Thomas Misiak-Kacsh; his brother John (Odette); beloved †œsisters†� Annie Cieslukowski and Mary Kay Sanford and a host of nieces and nephews. A Prayer Vigil will begin at 10:00 am, followed at 10:30 am by a Funeral Mass on Wednesday, April 6, 2022 (Thom†™s birthday), at Christ On The Mountain Catholic Church, 13922 W. Utah Avenue, Lakewood, CO 80228. A Denver Art Museum docent scholarship fund is being set up in Thom†™s name. In lieu of flowers we ask that you donate to the group he loved so much.
