Tommie “Tom” L Woodman, 69, of Beloit, died at his home surrounded by his family on Friday, March 20, 2020. He was born April 1, 1950 in Beloit, WI to the late Lewis “Randy” and Marjorie (Quintrell) Woodman. In his early childhood schooling, he attended Fisher School from first to fifth grade and he graduated from Parkview High School Class of 1968.

After all his schooling, Tom enlisted in the US Army and served his country during the Vietnam War 1969- 1971, he was honorably discharged as an E5. Tom worked at GM for 40 years retiring in 2008.

On July 26, 1980, Tom married the former Susan “Sue” Niman at the First Baptist Church, Beloit.

Tom truly enjoyed the open road having a passion for semis and car races along with his trips with Sue especially down Route 66. He would follow the Wisconsin Badgers, Milwaukee Brewers, and the Chicago Bears sports teams. Tom adored his cat Holly and the cuddles. His pride for his yard was renowned with anyone who knew him. Most of all though family meant the world to Tom whether it was just spending time with his five grandchildren relaxing or attending their sporting events, or even the road trips with his sons.

Tom is survived by his wife Susan Woodman; two sons: Chad (Sara) Woodman and Joshua (Chelsea) Woodman; his five grandchildren: Adrian, Evelina, Kristian, Baylen, and Aliyah; sister Bonnie (Donald) Larson; sister-in-law Joanne (Richard) Woodman Hodge; Sue’s siblings: David (Barbara) Kemnitz, Ronnie Niman, Danny (Debbie) Niman, Deb Niman, Pam Niman, Bernadine (John) Hoover, and Roger (Jill) Niman; and numerous nieces, nephews, great nieces and great nephews. He was preceded in death by his parents; brother James Woodman; sisters-in-law Jane Niman and LaVonda Kemnitz; brothers-in-law Jeff Niman and Tom Niman; and his father and mother-in-law Harold and LaVonne Niman.

Due to Governor Evers Emergency Order #5 prohibiting mass gatherings of 10 people or more, the family will have a private service. Please visit to send condolences to the family.

Sue and the family wish to give their appreciation to Dr. Shekhani and his staff, Amanda and Sara with Palliative & Hospice Care, and to Dr. Bangert and the rest of the Mercy staff for the care and compassion provided to Tom and us.

Tom always had a way to make me smile when I called or saw him at school when he was picking you up. Tom and you are a powerful couple and your love for each was a superpower. I feel blessed to have been able to met him and call him a friend. My friend, God bless you and my prayers are with you and the boys. Love, Betty

Dear Sue and the entire Woodman family.
We are so sad to hear this news of Tom. He was my buddy/cousin when we were very young. Please accept our heart felt condolences.
Thank you for letting Scott know so that he could let myself and sisters know.

Sue, Bonnie and family,
I am so sorry to hear of Tom's passing. We were best friends in High School and our 20's. If it wouldn't have been for Marge, we would have probably not made it to our thirty's. So many stories and adventures. Rest in Pease Tom!
