Thomas "Razz" Rasmussen

September 22, 1957 — July 26, 2022


Thomas “Razz” Rasmussen, 64, passed away July 26, 2022, after an eight-year battle with COPD.

Thomas was born September 22, 1957, in Wausau to parents Clarence and Lavora (Goetsch) Rasmussen. He enjoyed all sports but especially loved Nascar and his hometown heroes- the Green Bay Packers. He was known to live life to the fullest and there wasn’t a person who came across him that he didn’t leave his mark on.  Thomas proudly owned Razz’s on Thomas Street in Wausau from 1986 until the time he sold in 1997. He and his Wife Diana then owned Razz’s Breakfast Bar & Grill in Schofield from 2006 until just recently when they sold in November 2021. He liked to spend time camping, going on cruises, raising money for charity, and playing cards and cribbage. Above all, he cherished spending time with his daughters and grandson, Tanner. “Razz” was a social butterfly and will be missed by so many. Sometimes you run into people who change your life for the better. Those people are called bartenders.

“Razz” is survived by his wife of 23 years, Diana (Wickersheim) Rasmussen; daughters Rachel (Bill) Rasmussen, Tiffani (Patrick) King, and Paige (Jordan) Rasmussen; grandchild, Tanner King; siblings, Carrie (Daniel) Nordgren, Tim (fiancé Carol Katzer) Rasmussen, and Beth (Dan) Porter; sister-in-law, Sue Rasmussen; mother-in-law, Susan Presley; father-in-law, Lonny (Laurel) Wickersheim; and many aunts, uncles, nieces, nephew, family, and friends. He is preceded in death by his parents, Clarence and Lavora; and brother, Todd Rasmussen.

A celebration of Tom’s life will be held Saturday, September 10, 2022, from 12:00 pm to 4:00 pm at Daybreak Bar & Grill, formerly Razz’s Breakfast Bar & Grill, 5307 Westfair Street, Schofield. In lieu of flowers, please consider donating to Aspirus Comfort Care & Hospice.
