Thomas J. Mcewen

July 20, 1951 — January 2, 2022

Thomas Joseph McEwen, age 70 of Hazelhurst, WI; owner of the Hilltop Cottages and Resort passed peacefully at home with family on January 2, 2022, after a courageous battle with brain cancer. Thomas was born on July 20, 1951 in Wausau, WI the son of Robert and Lucille (Burrow) McEwen.

His dream was to own the Hilltop Resort which he was able to acquire in 1993. He left his career as a commercial appraiser for the federal government in Chicago, never to wear a suit and tie again. Tom and his wife built a resort of fun times, serenity and relaxation for generations of families and friends.

His presence of being a talented fix it man and joyful bartender brought resort goers coming back for years. The friendships he established are countless. He loved getting to know guests or as he would call them "his friends" and said it was "neat" seeing their families grow year after year.

His hobbies included his woodworking skills and his beloved horseshoe team (dubbed
"Tommy Double" for his style of play) and golf league. He enjoyed fishing, ice fishing, deer hunting and elk hunting!

Tom is survived by his wife MaryEllen McEwen of Hazelhurst, WI and by his siblings Patricia McEwen-Kiel (Jim), Barbara McEwen (Al), Joseph McEwen (Leah) and Robert McEwen (Patty and Colleen) and further survived by many nieces, nephews and other relatives and friends.

He was preceded in death by his parents Robert and Lucille (Molly) McEwen and grandparents Joseph and Gwendolyn McEwen and Art and Dorothy Burrow.
