Thomas Gene Fries, 65, formerly of Highland, went to find peace with his Lord on Monday, September 26, 2016, at Bethel Care Center in Arpin, WI. Thomas was born January 8, 1951, to the late Roland and Dorothy Fries. He married Sandra Cypher and to this union three children were born.

He also spent many years in the liquidation business with his friend Wanda Read. Thomas led the rosary and sang for the main body at Bethel Care Center in Arpin.
