Allan Tomasik of Pine was born in June 1944 and died in January 2008.
His final days were with people of RTA Hospice: Cathy Kesterson, Gail Gillette, Jean Ramsey, Susan Cline, Twila Becham, the Tjernagels, the Rev. John Teubner, Gary Banister, Greg Potter, Dr. Michael Lowe and others. "Without the cooperation of all these people, I would not have been able to cope with Allan's terminal illness," said his widow, Katy.
Mrs. Tomasik also thanks her neighbors Patty and John Rockwell and her business adviser, Eleanor Jones.
Arrangements were made by the Neptune Society.
Mr. Tomasik's ashes will be scattered at the foot of the Mogollon Rim.
He is survived by his father, John Wolowiac of Chicago, Ill.; his wife Katy; his daughter, Alaine; three grandchildren and one stepson, Edward Fuller.
A private gathering will be held.
Donations may be made to RTA Hospice, 511 S. Mud Springs Road, Payson, AZ 85541.
