Thomas J. Balis

Thomas J. Balis, beloved husband of the late Joan Balis (nee Petriekis); loving father of David (Julie), Cathy (Matt) Costello, Emily Balis and Jennifer (Jason) Koenig; cherished grandfather of Sophia, Ethan, Grant, Dylan, Cecilia, Thomas, Andrew and Benjamin; fond brother of Carole Foley (nee Balis), the late Robert Balis, and Rick (Joanne) Balis. Memorial Mass Saturday 9:30 A.M. at St. Stephen Deacon and Martyr Church in Tinley Park. Due to the ongoing COVID pandemic, neither Tom nor his children would want anyone putting their health at risk to attend his service. Attendees are asked to wear a mask and arrive at the church 15 minutes before the service. For those who are unable to attend , Tom would be happy if people would put down their phones and spend some time outside with their families, looking at the stars and thinking of him and Joan together again. In lieu of flowers, please consider making a donation to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, an organization that was always close to Tom and Joan's hearts.
