Tributes for

Barganski, Thomas John

Barganski, Thomas John, passed away peacefully from heart failure at St Joseph Hospital in Orange on 01/13/13. Tom was born 12/02/59 in Chicago, IL and resided in Orange, CA. He worked most recently at Farmers & Merchants Bank in Orange County. He is a 1978 graduate of Mater Dei High School although his allegiance switched to Servite when his nephews attended and played Friar sports against the Monarchs. Tom had a passion for all sports especially March Madness and enjoyed his annual treks to Las Vegas to share "Bones'" hoops knowledge with the local sports books. He had a fondness for Bond and didn't miss the midnight "Skyfall" opener with brother-in-law David Gross. He also loved family time spent with his siblings, nieces and nephews. Tom is survived by his parents, Roger and Shirley Barganski of Orange, CA; brother, John (and Denise) Barganski of Fullerton, CA; sisters, Kathy (and David) Gross of Marietta, GA, and Kim (and Mike) Bogue of Syracuse, UT; nieces, Cassie (and Peter) Bjork, Vanessa (and Drew) Travis, Jessica Barganski, Emma Gross, Nicole Bogue, Ally Bogue, Katie Bogue; and nephews, Dustin Gross, Sean Barganski, Connor Gross, Zachary Bogue, Nick Bogue and John Bogue. RIP our beloved Uncle Kermit.
