Thomas Gerard Junker
At Rest with God, Monday, March 8, 2021.
Tom Junker was a beloved father, husband, and son. He was married to his wife Jenny (nee Fitzgerald) for 27 years, and for 23 years was a father to Jack, Bridget, and Peter Junker. He was also the dear brother of James (Mary Kay) Junker, and a dear uncle, cousin and friend.
He loved working at Zollinger’s, and had worked there since he was nine years old. And, of course, he always loved a good Zollinger’s story.
He loved getting to play Santa Claus for his children when they were younger.
He loved a good game of ping pong, but not just ping pong, Tom loved all sports.
He loved the simple things in life; going for a bike ride, watching a baseball game, and getting to live in St. Louis Hills.
Finally, he loved his three kids more than anything. He taught them the value of a good education, timeliness, and to always be generous and kind.
We will always miss you and love you forever.

I will always have fond memories of a young 15 year old Tom Junker in my French class at SLUH. He was a playful, yet respectful young man. May he rest in eternal peace!

I worked with Tom for many years as a sales rep servicing the Zollinger’s store. We shot a video together to promote the store – that was a fun day. I am so sorry to hear about his passing. He was a good man.

Dear Jenny, I was so sad to hear of Tom’s passing! My deepest sympathy to you and your family. I still remember working with you at St. Mary’s Hospital when you married Tom. You shared how much fun you two had at your wedding reception! Cherish those memories forever! You are in my thoughts and prayers!

I have just enough fond and fun memories of my great friend Jim’s little brother Tommy. Those few are all one needed to know how great Tom is. Our deepest sympathies go to family and friends. With sadness, I hope many wonderful things will still come from this good man’s life and story.
